Finally Friday is here. It’s funny how some weeks seem longer than others, even though they’re not. This week seemed to last f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Tonight, Nicholas and I went to Lone Star Steakhouse with The Neighbors. The Neighbor Wife hadn’t been there before, and it was high time for her to experience their sweet potato goodness. Their menu seems very reminiscent of Outback’s. I checked their respective company information and they were actually launched within a year of each other, with Lone Star coming first in 1988 and Outback a year later.
Dani correctly guessed our (my!) favorite “cruise cocktail,” the Strawberry Colada, which we enjoyed back in February and November of last year. We’re going to be enjoying it again in just a few short weeks as our vacation is coming up. The Neighbor Wife keeps the official countdown of how many days until we embark on our next journey, but suffice it to say, we’re getting close. I found a recipe, surprisingly enough, for the Strawberry Colada, so I’ll be whipping up a batch of them tomorrow to put us in the vacation mood.
A year ago today … disappointing muffins.
