I have pierced my eyebrow.. !!!
(ok, I totally taped the ear ring on...)
Well…..actually…truth be told, Bones the cat, pierced my eyebrow.
We were trying to trim her daggers....uh, claws, and she panicked and grabbed a hold of me..or should I say…my face…
Yeah..my eyebrow in particular….and hung on (or...in) for dear life…..
So with blood streaming (really....it was....I had to get a Kleenex and everything...) we had Mother-in-law finish the job of holding down the cat while I put a band-aid on my brow.
(insert a really sad face here...)
Went back to work and told them the first story that “I had my eyebrow pierced!”
Sounded so much cooler than the whole-cat-trimming-fiasco story..
OK, back to vacation. We have a most favorite restaurant in the Denver area called Maggiano's Little Italy .. it looks as if Frank Sinatra himself could walk in at any minute … dark wood, marble, big tables with starched white linens, waiters in crisp white shirts and black pants with white half-aprons…
They serve possibly the BEST food there.
And you can get it “family style” at a set price for all and choices from like 2 appetizers from a list if 6, then 2 salads from a list, 2 pasta dishes, 2 entrées and 2 desserts!
But what’s really amazing, is they will BOX it all up!
As long as it’s on the table, it’s YOURS!
During dinner, they took the salads away and boxed them, put them in a pretty handled paper bag and started our “collection”...
With that kind of service, we find we don’t want to take advantage, as some might. We did order a lot of food, ate most, but still had tonzzzzz left over.
I don’t think we re-ordered but one entrée, (thinly pounded lemon chicken with roasted herbed potatoes) and of course, we had an extra Crème Brule (only because I didn’t see it in time) that was boxed … but everything else was from the original first order on the table..
..(and yes, I checked. no "rabbit" on the menu..)
And that just about sums up the trip - fast - furious - fun - and very memorable! Can't wait to do it again...how's next week for you???
