The Rancher and the Bag Lady went out for supper last night to celebrate Valentine's Day. The Ranchers' brother and his wife and her sister and her husband had invited them to go along with them.
This was the first time in recent history that the Rancher was not working on Valentine's Day, and it was great to be able to go to a restaurant and enjoy not having to cook. The ladies all ordered Filet Wellington, which was not as good as it could have been, but was still not too bad.
The Bag Lady also tried a new drink, and fell in love with it! She is going to have to try to reproduce it at home - partly because she so rarely goes to town and orders a fancy cocktail in a restaurant, and partly because for the price of one of those fancy cocktails in a restaurant, she is pretty sure she can purchase all the ingredients for making it a home, and still have money left over for nuts!
It was a martini called Berry Me, and was really, really good! Contained raspberry vodka, triple sec, lime juice and a selection of frozen berries.... yum.
After dinner, the three couples retired to one of the in-laws homes and played cards into the wee hours of the evening.... 9 pm or some such nonsense! Crazy party hounds, that's us.
How did you spend your Valentine's Day? (Try not to be too jealous of the Bag Lady's rip-snorting good time - remember, this is the first time she can recall going out for dinner on Valentine's Day since she moved to the ranch... 14 years, but who's counting?)
