They had two dipping sauces for the little squid: the traditional marinara and then a yummy sweet and sour Granny Smith/red peppercorn delight. C went on to enjoy their "Cracklin Pork Shank" (which he knew and loved at Sweinhauxen in Mainz, Germany - sorry if I've butchered that spelling!) and I ventured out and had the chef's special fresh bay scallops over a bed of fresh veggies. They were both delish and I know we will be returning to Murphy's often!
Yesterday morning we met up with Kristin for breakfast at the Great Harvest Bread Company at the intersection of Briarcliff and LaVista. It being Passover/Easter week, they were featuring Hot Cross Buns and darling Bunny Bread:
C & K opted for the Hot Cross Buns, while I enjoyed a delicious scone. Then she and I were off for a day of girls' shopping and lunch. We had a great, great time. She was in need of some business suits for work plus a nice dress for a Black Tie wedding next weekend. I was along as a consultant, and truly was not in the buying mood, if you can imagine that!! We accomplished her goals, picking up three great suits and a very lovely little black dress and enjoyed a wonderful little lunch....sorry, no photos. It was a bit on the chilly side, but warm enough if you were in the sun. The sky was a lovely deep blue. This morning it is barely in the 30s with a brisk wind out of the northwest, but the sky is as blue as ever and the azalea and Dogwood blossoms are still brilliant. Ah Spring!!!!
PEACE and HAPPY EASTER
