I woke up
Had a Doctors appointment, they took blood so that means needles! Never a good thing? Also,
Feel free to skip this part
Had to collect a stool sample, can I just say
I know I deal with this all the time with Gma but somehow.....
Startings of a headache by 3pm and a whiny kid who didn't want to mow the lawn.
I should back up and say I woke up Dallin and Brenn before the Doctor and gave them some chores, I don't care that they are 19 and 20, they still get chores! Both had them done before I got home, that included mowing the front lawn, the whining was from a different kid and the back lawn. If that is tough to figure out I only have 3 kids, come on!!
So I laid down to rest and hopefully get rid of the headache because I knew Ken would want to take me out for Valentines Day.
Door bell rings after 10 minutes, my new Visiting teacher with some goodies.
Phone rings, something I had to handle - can't remember.
Door bell rings again
You get the picture, right?!
By about 5:30 Ken came home with roses - he always gets roses. He is very sentimental about them. He has a hard time buying anything else because they just seem so right to him. So he came with red and white roses. The white are because we tease him a little.
So we went to dinner. We ate Italian because we almost always go Mexican or to a Steak house because he likes those and I really don't care. Food is not really important to me. I like it. I want it to taste good. But I am not a foodie. As long as it fills me up and is not gross, I am good. But I do like Italian and he is not such a fan.
So we try this new restaurant that Brenn found.
It is a little restaurant, tucked in the corner of a strip mall (Higley/Brown). It looked a little hinky. We waited quite a while, but it was Valentines day and we figured we would have to wait no matter where we went.
We ordered the specials - one of each.
I had Pork tenderloins in a sauce with mangoes and grapes.
Ken had Lobster spaghetti.
Ken's was really good.
because mine was the best thing we had ever eaten!!
I gave him a bite to be kind. Before I even tasted it. If I had tasted it first
he wouldn't have gotten any!!
I wish I could pronounce or spell the dish.
I wish it was a regular menu choice.
Then I could google it and try to make it every night for dinner.
Italian pork dishes with mango
Grape mango pork
Pork tenderloin fusion food
and about 10 other combos.
But I did give my email so they could send the specials for the week.
There is still hope!
At least I was in a better mood when I got home.
