It is prior to 6:30 a.m, which may be the earliest I have ever posted. I find that interesting. My plan is to compose a quick shout-out to a local business we were at last night, then pack for our fabulous weekend away.
You know, I know news format, and that is a lousy lead. Then again, this is not a newspaper, it is a silly blog (emphasis on the “silly” I’m afraid). No matter. I’m not editing; I’m posting on the fly, so here goes.
Last night I knew the sensible thing to do would be to start cooking dinner before Steven got home, frugally dine at home and get all our crap done for an un-frantic morning of departure. Well, sometimes we do not do the sensible thing, do we? Hence, we went to dinner at Sorrento’s Pizzia in Ilion, NY. Our original plan had been to go to Froggy’s Take-out, also in Ilion, and, you know, take out. That way we could potentially get some stuff done at home after we ate. Additionally, Froggy’s is closing sometime soon for good, so we wanted to have a farewell meal from the place.
Unfortunately, by the time we got to Ilion, Froggy’s was closed for the night. Sorrento’s is right down the street from there. We love Sorrento’s! And by now we were far too hungry to go home and cook. There were plenty of spaces in the parking lot. This would be great. As we were entering, some ladies were leaving. One said, “They don’t have any more food; we ate it all.” I was understandably concerned but told Steven to hold the door open for the ladies anyways. We were happy to learn the lady had exaggerated.
I got an appetizer of Bruschetta. Yum! Steven got a BLT. The menu said it was on white bread, but when he asked if something else was available, the waitress offered marble rye. Again, Yum! I almost changed my order to that. We both had a glass of Pinot Grigio. After all, it was a Friday for us.
We were quite delighted with our meal. I made a fast blog post when we got home (an extremely lame one, by the way, but you’ll have that) but did not get a whole lot else done. Still, it made an excellent start to our five day weekend.
