You know how it is...you go shopping for a fun little gift for a friend, and you see something you really like.
a) you don't need cute little bowls, and
b) you have too much stuff you need to get rid of.
Then, the next day you meet your friends for lunch. These are the friends I used to work with that we meet one time a month at a different restaurant in town.
We met at The Fox's Trail.(hence the foxes)
The atmosphere was great. It wasn't loud like some of the restaurants are. Have you noticed that? Some restaurants sound like they put "canned loud talking" through their speaker systems. This place was great for visiting.
But sadly, I've eaten there about four times and I've only had one meal that I really liked. However, other people seem to like it, so maybe it's just me. Usually, by the fourth time I've eaten at a place I have something picked out that I love at that place. Besides decor!
I kind of have been in a slump...off and on....since I had my tooth pulled...and my eye fixed....and a few other irritations, such as this weather FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Can it stop precipitating for five minutes of a day please.
So anyway....I went to a bookstore. And I checked out the bargain area.
But, they had this wonderful cake book on sale for $10!
I love reading cookbooks. Reading the history of foods and the traditions behind them are interesting to me. And who knows, maybe I'll bake a cake or two.
And I bought this kitchen towel at this very cute store downtown called The Jitterbug, because who doesn't love garden gnomes?
