spoiled with food

Date night

I had a GREAT weekend. And I had some GREAT food. On Friday night Aaron and I had date night at the Brickoven, for those who are not Topekans, this is a local restaurant a bit upscale compared to the franchises around here. It was a nice evening so we bypassed the fancy seating and lighting that makes you look good and went for natural light and iron chairs. Ok simply put, we ate outside.

We started with a corn tamale cake,
which was wonderful. So sweet with
some heat, yummy.

For dinner I had the spinach artichoke dip.
The best part are the chips. I am not sure what they
are, but they are fried and seasoned.

Aaron had ribs and burnt ends. He loved it.
We also ordered carrot cake, but I failed to get a picture.

Girls night

Saturday I had a girls night. We had a reservation at the Rowhouse, a very upscale local restaurant in Topeka. If you like trying new foods and love to explore new things and new flavors, this is the place for you. They are only open three nights a week and every week they change the menu. This is this weeks:
I decided to buy a new dress for occasion. I wasn't going to spend much and I was going to get a black dress so I could wear it anywhere, but I ended up with this

It is a Simply Vera dress from Kohl's and I LOVE it.

Here we are getting ready to go eat
Me, Keri and Lindsey

Then here is one in front of the restaurant

We had some other friends who were meeting us there.

Here are the pictures of the food I took. In order they were served.

Ok no the main dish was not in there. I took pictures of everything but that. I was just carried away and wanted to eat it
