Dishing with Dee…the March GNO edition

29 Mar

dishing with dee 2

Normally I’m very much a home-body – I come home from work and just do my thing, each day. But now that I have had friends from college move into the area (thank you military), we have been working on trying to get a Girl’s Night Out going each month. Although last night was only the second one we have successfully completed. We decided to try out this wine and cheese bar in the city. Let’s just say that by the end of the night you could have rolled me home – I ate so much between these killer nachos with pulled pork on them (yes, you read right, pulled pork), and a sandwich with chicken and bacon jam (because anyone who knows me, knows that I think bacon needs to have a religious following) and then Chocolate mousse cake for dessert (that I split with my friend). Of course, no Girl’s Night Out would be complete without alcohol – I have their blueberry/lemonade sangria – sweet and tart at the same time, it just hit the spot.

Unfortunately, there isn’t one by me, so I only go once in a blue moon. But I was really good and only walked out with a box of dark chocolate sea salt caramels. You guys should be proud of me 😉

I can’t wait for our next GNO’s and to see what kind of shenanigan’s we get into! How did you spend your Saturday night?

    My lovely wife and I went to a concert. But not just any concert…we drove 2 1/2 hours to a casino resort in CT to see Barry Manilow. He was always one of my all-time favorite musicians as he is for Deb. But this was extra special because she and I met in a chat room on the old Prodigy Internet service where we talked about 1970s music as we both loved music from that time frame. It grew from there to us falling in love and getting married. So you could say Barry indirectly brought the two of us together. We absolutely loved the show last night. A very special Saturday night with my special lady.

    I got to hang out with my beautiful daughter, who is home for a few days post spring-break trip to Hawaii, but pre-return to school for spring term! It was fantastic.

    Foxwoods. They are both in CT but we prefer Foxwoods. Even played a little Keno…my favorite casino game. Didn’t win anything though
