This past Friday, which happened to be the day we wake once a month and say, "Thank you dear Missouri State Teacher's Retirement Fund for being in the top 3 in the U.S. and for never letting the state get their paws on our money" . And, to celebrate this monthly event, we go out to eat. Sometimes it is breakfast, sometimes lunch and upon occasion dinner. Last Friday we headed to one of our new favorites, Tarpon Tavern, where (Pam Bennett) they now have the menu posted.
E had the blackened sirloin burger with feta and roasted tomatoes accompanied by the parm fries (to die for btw)
Then, Friday night, our dear friends, Susie and Justin, came by for our annual holiday dinner and gift exchange. And look what Susie made me. I thought she bought it at a florist and it smells so divine with the pieces of fir cut from their Christmas tree.
