Changes like the seasons!












Yesterday I met up with my pal Sugar Bear (Karen Baertschiger) at The Vine for lunch.

Owners Dustin and Ashley..

Karen's lunch was Dustin's awesome lasagna...

My lunch was the Calimari Pasta... (OMGOOOOOOOD!!!)

Karen told me that she and her husband Herman shared the same anniversary date as my parents (January 31st)... so yesterday was Karen & Herman's 58th Anniversary!!!! Happy Special Day kids!

Next door is Brian's State Farm office, so stopped in with some photos I had for him.
I stopped by The Kitchen Company to drop some things off to Jennifer and was chatting with her and Nicole and Susan. Had not met Susan before. I told her there weren't may Susans. She agreed. I said before I was born the doc told my parents I was going to be a boy, so they were going to name me Steven. Then surprise... a girl. So they named me Susan. Can you believe this... the other Susan had the same exact story... she was supposed to be a boy and was going to be a Steven too!!!! OMGOSH. Small world!!!! 

Then off to Rogue River to mail some stuff and to Ace for cracked corn. Then home to my babies.

Dinner was an Omaha Steaks Chicken Cordon Bleu and some veggies (cauliflower, carrots, broccoli, and red potatoes) all roasted with a drizzle of olive oil...

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Hump Day. Ciao.

The Vine looks like an adorable place with yummy food. You do have the greatest restaurants up there.
I was thinking after that lunch you would just have popcorn for dinner. :) It looked filling.

Poor Lisa Marie. It must not be easy being the daughter of The King. She needs to put down that fork. :(

Sue, even tho I don't always have time to comment just know that I read your blog and enjoy it every day. Wouldn't miss it! I know it's a lot of work and I do appreciate it.

XOXO Trisha

The Vine just made my bucket list. It has been so very long since I've thought of baked Alaska. Wonder what the temp is in Anchorage today.

Thank you T!!! Appreciated. xo Yes, poor Lisa, but Michael Jackson's daughter has been going through a lot too... craziness! Too much money and freedom, like Miley Cyrus!!

Fortunately the meals at The Vine are not too huge. Just perfect! xoxo

As I have mentioned before on Carnival Cruises on Friday evening it is the farewell party and dinner. Steak and lobster and for dessert Baked Alaska.

Heavenly!
