Sweet Ending For the Itch

Ok yes,  so you figured out I'm clueless (see yesterday's post)

I like to think of it as living in happy land a lot

Nah, just don't really pay any mind to bad things and hang out in the kitchen a lot

The other night for our 7 yr Itch (ha) the Inlaws baby sat and hubs and I ran out the door before anyone noticed us.

You know the kind of date where both of you dress up...you wear makeup and he wears cologne?

You know where you jump in his truck that doesn't have car seats?

You know where when you get to the restaurant you order a table for 2 not 8?

You know Date night






We went to Outback Steakhouse.  We haven't been there in probably 7 yrs.....I saw a commercial  showing a Filet and Lobster deal...I was in like Flynn!  (I'm a sucker for Lobster!!!)

Hubs ordered me a Sangria Trio Sampler....(yummy) and fav appetizer


Conversation flowed and not one mention about kids!

I miss eating slow....where you can put your fork down between bites...and the food on your plate actually gets to get eaten by you.

I usually have  child on my lap eating my food...or I'm standing at the counter shoveling it in because by the time I served everyone their food they are going in for 2nds and I haven't even had 1st.....or I'm having to shovel it in because by the time I actually get to sit and eat my food everyone else is done and it's time to clean the kitchen and bathe babies.

Deep Sigh...Date night was so worth it.

After dinner we didn't get dessert.....because I made 2 pies waiting for us at home

Yes, 2...you forget there are 8 in the family...and the inlaws...and I always send some home with my FIL (he has a sweet tooth that he will deny)

I tried my hand at a super easy recipe crossing my fingers it was good.

It was

It was so good that hubs was like...."WOW...this is really great...this would be something you would take to a party" 

Ok that is a winner in my book  (the almond extract makes the pie)
