My family goes out to eat... A LOT. This is due to the fact that everyone in my family loves to eat. We're well aware that we are pigs, and pretty much fine with that. However, Sam and the other poor saps that married into this family, are no doubt thoroughly disgusted with this behavior. This weekend was a prime example of the habit. Friday night we went to Tia Rosa's for excellent Mexican food. After that we headed straight to Cosmo and Jenn's reception for dessert. Ok we really went to celebrate their blissful union, but the cotton candy, ice cream, and chocolate was not far from our minds, or our loaded plates. Richard and Erica were in town for the wedding and on Saturday suggested Buca di Beppo for lunch. Not one person turned down the invite, and as a result the snotty hostess was stuck setting up a table for 15. We always have fun and at least one good laugh when we're all together. As we left Bucca, Sam overheard a nearby table sigh with relief and comment about how quiet the almost empty restaurant now was. Needles to say, Sam suggested that next Saturday we have a field day. You know, get outside and enjoy the fresh air, play some ball, and maybe even eat a home cooked meal. Something tells me the turnout won't be as promising as say, a lunch invite.
