And a not so frugal dinner

Here we all are out having dinner last night at the local German restaurant. The boys both ate four courses and it was very interesting listening to their expert discussion about what they were eating and the wording of the menu. Being chefs I guess they never really leave work behind as they have food in their lives every day.

I had one of these organic wheat beers and that filled me up, and then a plate of steamed vegies and a dumpling and could eat no more. The others all had pretzels, potato soup with frankfurts, various types of pork, sauerkraut, red cabbage, dumplings, potatoes, salad, sour cherry dessert, apple strudel, beers, (complimentary) schnapps and coffee. We were sitting next to an open fire, it was warm and comfy, the company was excellent, we had a few laughs, talked non-stop and generally had a wonderful time together. It wasn't a frugal meal but the memories are priceless.



  1. it's the priceless memories that are important ~ glad you all had a wonderful time :)

  3. Oh Rhonda Jean, you made my day with this post! I was just getting ready to shut down the computer and crawl into bed, and decided to just quickly pop in and visit you, first. I read your lovely beginning post--very nice, and then scrolled down to make sure I didn't miss anything and exclaimed--quite loudly to Rosie, who was sitting beside me--**Hey**!!Great big smile! Yes, what a very handsome family, and you are just beautiful! I just loved hearing about your wonderfully special time, together, and getting to see great photos of you and your dearest loves. Truly, thanks so much for sharing.
    Warmly, Jewels--who is now, off to hit the hay....you have a great day, my friend.
