any food is good food.

el zarape, wheaton IL. golden margarita.

my attempt at baking for the twelfth time. 
was finally a success.

chocolate chip cookie ball things.

even Mom liked em and she's hard to please! Crispy on the outside, chewy inside.

 Mike came in town for a visit, since he hasn't been here since Thanksgiving! 
So we decided for a date night in Lafayette Square... 
Here is what we stumbled upon
*square one brewery*
goat cheese artichoke spinach dip

Light Squared beer - satisfaction on a Friday night.

loved the atmosphere, we sat at the bar and ate beer battered onion rings, beer battered chicken fingers. and we drank beer. Are you sensing a theme here? We were at a brewery, why not.

...and just a little walk down the street to... Bailey's Chocolate Bar. 
I have heard great reviews and have been wanting to go. Who better to go with?!

Mike got a Unibroue Ephimere. A delicious wheat beer flavored with apple. 
Very good dessert beer, if there is such a thing. 
I know he really wanted to get one of the delicious martinis, but he wouldn't get caught using one of the glasses. boys!
Didn't stop me, of course:

I got the drink special of the night *tiramisu martini. perfect is an understatement.
and don't tell Mike, but I definitely saw him sneak a few sips from my glass ;)

after sharing some truffles:
Cinnamon apple bread pudding. delightful.

We aren't very picky eaters - Can you tell?
any food is good food. (well, almost)
