This month is all about a few of our favorite things…so let’s get started:
Favorite Sit Down Restaurant – Oh there are too many to choose just one! For an easy and relaxing dinner with just the four of us, we like to go to Lures Bar and Grille. It’s more bar than restaurant with a constantly changing tap list; but they have a bucket of toys that kids can ‘borrow’ during the meal. Whoever thought of this – thank you! I can’t tell you how much whining we’ve heard about being bored with crayons at restaurants. Other people’s toys are always just so much more fun.
T showing off some toys at Lures a few years ago.
If we want really incredible food and a nicer atmosphere, we like to go to The Brewer’s Art in Baltimore. They don’t have a kid’s menu, but we’ve been known to pack dinner for the kiddos just so we could eat here. Is it obvious to you yet that we value good wine and beer lists just as much as the food?
Favorite Cookie – I’m with Elaine on this one. Warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies just can’t be beat. Soft, with no nuts please. (Side note: Something Swanky is currently doing a weekly series to find the best chocolate chip cookie recipe, and I am fascinated)
Bath Product Scent – I don’t mind a mild coconut scent, but mostly bath scents just give me a headache.
T.V. Show – House, MD was probably one of my all-time favorite shows. Can we bring him back, please? These days it’s all about Big Bang Theory and whatever we’re watching over Amazon Prime Streaming.
Flower/Plant – Hydrangeas and peonies from my garden are always a favorite; but when I can get them, I love the wild, but sweet ranunculus.
Bad-for-me-Snack – Aside from chocolate chip cookies? Brownies, if I’m in the right mood. And something in me just can’t resist candy corn in the Fall…but we have a one-bag-per-year limit in this household.
Magazines – Never been much of a magazine reader, but we did have gifted subscriptions to Bon Apetit and Food and Wine that I enjoyed for a long time.
Hobby – Between work, blogging and the kids, there’s hardly time for sleep let alone another hobby! I suppose you could say that cooking is sort of a hobby. I’m always trying new recipes (and should really share them more often, shouldn’t I?)
Holiday – Christmas!
Girls Night Out Activity – I don’t even remember the last time I had one of those! I’d be happy just getting a pedicure at a spa that serves champagne.
Date Night – My absolute favorite date nights are when we either splurge for a really nice dinner or go somewhere to do some tasting. (Hey, we just did that!)
