Saturday lunch with Deb plus antiques!

Deb Fitzgerald picked up Pat and I around 10:30 on Saturday morning and we drove to this "Gas Station".
There is a gourmet restaurant inside.  
The Chef Point restaurant was featured on Dives, Diners, & Drive Ins on the Food Network.
I ordered the specialty duck appetizer and for lunch I had the Crab stuffed pork chop.  It was wonderful.  
Pat and Deb order the Escargot for their appetizer and for their lunch they each order Cioppino.  
"Bread pudding" is the specialty dessert and of course Deb and Pat ordered one to share. 
 I have given up desserts for Lent so not even a bite for me. 

On the way home we stopped at an Antique Mall.  
Pat wasn't very happy with us but I found some neat treasures.
When Deb and I went up to the counter to pay for our treasures 
we found Pat sitting on a Church pew talking with a lady from Fremont, Ne. 
 What a small world!!!!
A silver coffee pot!
A jar of antique beads!
The little shamrock shaped green cut glass dish!
Thanks Deb for a wonderful day! 

And one last entry to this blog.  Look who showed up yesterday in the mail from Gus Collison.  
He is our great nephew who lives in Carroll, Iowa.  
Ella, Gus's big sister sent us Flat Stanley a couple of years ago and 
we had so much fun. We are looking forward to having Stanley back with us again.  
I just wish we could get Ella and Gus to come see us also.  
Thanks for stopping by.

Cake Balls

This past Thursday night I had one of my good friends over to demonstrate making Cake Balls to about 6 of us gals.  These were the Oreo cookie ones.  In my freezer I have several balls made from a white cake mix to be frosted for a later party this weekend.  I will be sure to take a picture of those. 
What a fun evening and Cake Balls are quite the rage!!!
