Friday night Mr. Branflake took me out on a date to one of our favorite restaurants in Sacramento, Cafeteria L15. We split a plate of braised beef on a bed of greens and creamy mashed potatoes with a cherry compote. So good. We then went home and watched Thor. At the end of the movie, as Mr. Branflake reflected on the main character played by ripped Chris Hemsworth, he said in a far off voice "It's like looking in a mirror."

Saturday was full of teaching and rehearsing until 5 pm when I said to my students "peace out!" and met up with Mr. Branflake and friends for dinner at Gatsby's, a diner recently featured on the Food Network. (Will post a review later this week.)

Fresh raspberries, chocolate cake, and a side of hot fudge. So good!
Then after dinner we went to Leatherby's Creamery and got some monstrous sundaes. After our food fest we visited a friend who had surgery this week. He's on some serious meds and I basically have never laughed so hard in my life. I'm hoping the laughing burned off my sundae.
Sunday night we went over to a friend's for dinner and games. She made a Thanksgiving dinner complete with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and dinner rolls. We then had brownies and ice cream for dessert. I feel very spoiled.
I'm hoping this week I can get back on track and maybe, you know, eat healthy or something.
Did you eat anything fun this weekend?
