we put the "happy" in happy hour
a few days backmiss elinor, hubby, and i grabbed some early dinner with my folks at st. francis. it was mighty tasty. there is just something about heading to a restuarant on the earlier side and making the most of the evening. it usually gives us license to try more dishes and double up...you can't beat a happy hour deal, am i right? and in this case, i am talking a big ol' gourmet burger with a side of hand cut fries for seven bucks. #winning. the springtime weather was particularly springy and the restaurant opened up the side of the restaurant so there was a perfect breeze while we dined. elinor sat in her little seat just playing away while we sipped some good wine and noshed on baked goat cheese with crusty bread, french onion burgers, chicken salad sandwiches, and radish/bacon/garden pea/buttermilk ranch salad. good stuff. and so local and fresh. it was a simply delightful meal with great company. happiness and satisfied tummies all around.
