Dinner Friends

Last Wednesday, I went out with my Dinner Friends.  It was crummy weather when we went; snowy and windy.  We were celebrating Magellan's birthday.  I'm glad we didn't postpone it because you never know this time of year what it's going to be like; it could have been worse.   She picked the Outback.  Magellan and I didn't even get lost this time, although that could have been because we've been there before ;-)

Because of how crummy the weather was, I was expecting the restaurant to be empty of people but Holy Smokes it was packed. Everyone must have thought the same thing.

It was good to see everyone although two people couldn't show up.  It seemed like everyone had a good holiday and everyone's life was on an even keel for a change.

I had an excellent meal.  A salad with honey mustard dressing (I never had this kind of dressing and it was good), baked potato and spare ribs.  I used to when my son was home get the whole rack of ribs and take half of it home for him but I didn't this time.  We bought a bottle of White Zinfandel between 4 of us.  I usually don't get dessert but I ordered something to take home.  They had this desert called Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Pie with whipped cream and I just had to try it.

It wasn't snowing so much when we left, just kind of misty snow.

After I was home for a while, I made a cup of coffee and tried the pie, even though I was stuffed.  I barely finished it but somehow I managed.  It was very good.

I probably went to sleep about 11 and didn't wake up Thursday until after 8 a.m.  I still haven't been sleeping well but I slept like a log LOL.  I don't know if it was the wine or all that food I ate but I felt very rested.

It was probably the combination of good food, good company, and the wine. Glad you got some sleep!

I agree with Cathryn...so just do it again...when you feel sleep deprived, Viki!
