A few days ago Barron sent an email letting me know he would be in my neck of the woods and wondered if TSM and I would like to meet him and Old NFO for dinner. Unfortunately they planned to meet Monday which conflicted with my schedule, so I missed seeing Old NFO again. Fortunately Barron could meet us Tuesday.
Still not an easy task, but eventually we overcame all the obstacles and were able to make it up his way.
Dinner was yummy. Calamari, bisque and scallops! A very rare decadent meal. I am not a dessert person. Don’t like cake or pie or anything sticky and sweet, but I have a weakness for Creme Brûlée. In all honestly, I make the best in the world, so I rarely order it out. I am a bit of a snob when it comes this treat. The restaurant was nice giving me a false sense of confidence. In short…bluuuuuuck. The brûlée was less than impressive and the creme average. TSM ate his and mine. Barron advised that I begin to carry a mini torch to solve the problem. Sounded logical, so if you read a story about A Girl being politely escorted out of an upscale restaurant in Virginia for preparing her own dessert table side, you’ll know it was me.
Loved meeting Barron. The man has a story for everything. There wasn’t a single subject brought up that he didn’t respond…”Funny story about that…” And he was right. The story turned out to be a good one every time.
I have pictures, but I was too exhausted last night to plug my phone in, so just use your imagination. Picture food, friends, laughter, fun, fun, fun!!
I hope all of you are having as much living your life as I am living mine.
