and this is the floral arrangement that greeted us...
fine local food is offered
It is a large space
because of the number of people who frequent the premises
it tends to be noisy
the wine list is so large
it takes up an entire binder !
We enjoyed a Tanqueray 10 martini
with the regulation 3 olives to start
we perused the menu
shared a salad
before our mains
I chose the grilled salmon with Yukon Gold potatoes and root veggies
Mr. HB had the rack of Lamb served atop white beans and olives
and after our dinner we went to a club
and danced for several hours to the beat of the music of our friend's band
they call themselves
MID LIFE CRISIS!
I wore my new Josef Ribkoff dress
black fish net stockings, kitten heels
a black vintage
it was a night of fun
I had a French 75
at the club
here is my recipe....
Lovely daughter wrote this recipe out for me
she loves this cocktail and introduced it to me
it is a sweet concoction
sip it slowly
and smack your lips!
I find it interesting that we can learn so much from our children
I never can get enough "learning" in my days
there's always something new to discover
working in a school I am surrounded by bright young minds
with thoughts that are rich and they love to share their knowledge
they are especially chatty when they come to the Library
to do research and find new books
Are you open to new ideas and change?
Have you recently enrolled in a course
or read a thought provoking book?
What do you do to keep your mind stimulated?
(I have recently started doing the Sudoku puzzles in the newspaper)
