H & D’s Excellent Adventure

What do you do after watching the Preakness and have your heart broken all over again after watching the Triple Crown hopeful break his leg in three places? You grab the local phone book, turn to the exotic restaurant section, and close your eyes and point. Bingo, that is how D and I decided where to have our post Preakness heartache dinner.

You see D’s husband is not adventurous when it comes to foreign cuisine. We have decided to make use of the time he is globe trotting to experience the vast array of epicurean culture in our area. Armed with our map quest directions, we were on our way. One bottle of wine a basket of assorted delectable bread and 2 tandoori dishes later, we were happy campers.

Can’t wait for the next adventure. It was just what I needed to get back to my old self.

My thoughts are with Barbaro. I hope he can recover.

(besides I could use the help on the house)

Wicked H said...

Well it was more the uncontrolled laughter and the spur of the moment plans. We usually don't do that.

I knew your invite had strings attached.....I am not as dumb as I look ;-)

Phillip said...

Oh Wicked, you definitely should not have watched the Preakness. But I am glad you are coming around. We missed you!

Wicked H said...

Well Phillip, you're right. Had I known...

I am a work in progress, trying not to be too hard on myself. My old self will return when it's good and ready.

I'm thrilled you have someone cool like D to whisk you away for adventurous dinners...sounds like fun!!!!

Joe said...

That is the perfect way to cure some heartbreak! Such a horrible thing that happened.

I hope you're feeling a bit better this week.

Just adore you!

Wicked H said...

HFS: Me too.

Joe: Right back at ya - I am doing my best.

What a great way to choose a restaurant! I'm not quite so adventurous.

Wicked H said...

Sophie: It was great fun and a real change for me as well. The worst that could have happened was that we both didn't like the place. As luck would have it, it all worked out. We hope to make it a regular thing.
