Well, I'm back, and well fed this time from Maggiano's. Love their chicken parm, and their house salad with their own dressing is enough to make a meal of.
Wonderful shopping at the Christmas Festival this year. Spent about $50 at one particular booth picking out items specifically for each basket. Can't say what, because sometimes I think there are family members who do jump in here once in a while and read. Stopped at the flag booth too and bought 2 more garden flags, 1) a cat with a bird sitting on his head; and 2) a flag that has shamrocks and "Erin go bragh" written in green. Love it.
Of course, we couldn't walk by the Gingerbread House booth without stopping, and enjoyed nibbling men and girls while walking around.
There were more people this year at the fair than I have ever seen before. We got there at opening and there were long lines out front, and when we left, there were again long lines extending outside, going both directions out the door - never have seen that before at that time of day. A lot of new vendors. Gingerbread house display was great.
Don't know who you were responding to, Kargiver re the amount/size of "salad", but suspect Reindeer Girl and RR had comments they had made. To give you an idea of the "salad", it was the size of a small can of tuna, both in circumference and height. Fine dining presentation, I guess, which I certainly am not used to. Enough about that. Today's lunch more than made up for it.
Glad DH was happy with his gift. Hope you have a nice dinner tonight.
Hats you were rather secretive about the "birthday" person, is it perhaps you?
GTW, G.T. did save me a piece of candy pie and brought it down. Haven't tasted it yet, instead we dug into the frosted brownies.
Brought back something for C.L., but when I gave her a call before the guys left, no answer. Was going to have them just drop me by her door so I could give it to her. She has been so generous with the produce from their garden.
Off to check on Cheero. G.T. had bought 3 catnip packets for their 2 cats, and gave one to Cheerio when they saw her rubbing against the bag that had been next to theirs that held them. She's like a drunken sailor!
Chat tomorrow if anyone's around.
