I wrote this post almost two months ago but with all that was going on, I just haven’t gotten around to posting it until now. Thank you all for your love and support during this difficult time!
February was a busy month for us, of course there’s Valentines day, my birthday and our 5th year of wedded bliss, so I decided we needed to try something out of our comfort zone. We tried a day of culture and culinary first. First we went to the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture and saw the exhibition, The Titans of the Ice Age. While we were there we also got a guided tour of the Campbell House.
It was informative and interesting enough, if you like that sort of thing.
Now that we’ve been officially cultured, we checked that off the list and went onto our culinary first. I made us reservations at a restaurant on the South Hill called Casper Fry, and luckily it was restaurant week so we got a appetizer, entree and desert for a set price.
The lighting and layout was warm and inviting, it had a good ambiance.
We watch cooking shows and neither of us had ever eaten risotto and this was a perfect opportunity to finally try some. It tasted good, except they topped it with a pickled mushroom! I had to look at the picture an hour later to remind my stomach that I’d eaten. But hey, that’s the world of fancy food right, small portions at high costs. We did it, we changed things up and tried something new. Probably wouldn’t do it again, but glad we did it, none the less. Next year I might schedule our date on the other side of the spectrum and do some dollar store crafting and go eat at the Golden Corral!
The cold weather has kept us in, but hasn’t kept us down. I’m not giving up on my bread making and finally tried it again.
Seriously, that dip is AMAZING! If i could, I’d dip into that picture right now and have me a bite!

Glad you switched stuff up and got cultured and ate risotto. Now that I read about it, I can cross that fancy stuff off my list. 🙂
For sure! Glad we could enlighten 😉
