You can't take me anywhere.

Tonight, the boy and I had a date night. We began the evening with reservations at an Italian restaurant which was delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I ate all of mine and then finished the boys (we split an entrée and salad.) The waiter tried to hide his surprise, but failed. I found it quite humorous. It was very nice having someone else do the cooking for a change. Someone, notably, who is much better at it than I am!! I said to the boy during dinner that all I wanted out of life was to give people reactions to food the way that I reacted to that pork chop. I didn't care where I worked or who for.

Before and after of the pork chop:

I was tempted to lick the plate. That prosciutto sauce was AMAZING.

Next on the agenda was Wicked, which I have been wanting to see forever. It was pretty amazing. I didn't know how much they altered the story (from Gregory Maguire's books) so I was surprised how different it was. It was still amazing, though. I would totally see it again. I just wish the seats were a little less pricey so we could have been a little closer to the action.

All in all it was a great night and much needed break from our usual routine. We figured out at dinner it had been TWO MONTHS since we had a date night. Unacceptable, I say.

On an unrelated note, Prop 8 was ruled unconstitutional. Awesome doesn't even describe how I feel about that. I actually squealed.

I didn't read Wicked until after I'd seen the musical twice, so when I did read it (literally a month ago), I was blown away at how....ADULT it was. Either way, I still love the musical and am so happy you got to see it!

Also, I squealed too when I found out about Prop 8. :)

Have you read the rest of the series? Or any of his other books? All good reads.

I haven't yet, but they're on my very extensive list of books to read. Suggestions on the first to tackle?

Definitely finish the Wicked series first. The second one is even more ADULT than the first. :)
