In my opinion, weekends were created specifically for indulging, and we’ve done more than our fair share over these last couple of days. Friday night was Date Night and my first experience at Ralph’s on the Park, which is in such a mood-boosting locale overlooking City Park. (Also, the disgruntled shrimp appetizer is to-die-for!) Saturday afternoon, we took some friends along to Katie’s, and I tried out the St. Louie Special: a hearty burger cooked to order topped with ham, provencal cheese, and blackberry jalapeno bbq sauce, served up with a side of sweet potato fries. And no weekend would be complete without a trip to our local Italian bakery, Angelo Brocato’s, where it’s always a tough choice between ordering gelato or something from the pastry display.
P.S. I hope that everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day, and I’m so excited to say that one of my best friends was blessed with her own little bundle of joy earlier today! Congratulations to Chris Powers and Jana Mahoney on their baby girl, Zoë June Powers, weighing in at a very healthy 8lb 8oz!
