Yesterday afternoon Jennifer and I didn't do a lick of work in honor of my birthday. Instead, we headed 15 miles north to the little town of Van Alstyn. First we went to a Bed & Breakfast, called the Durning House, for lunch at their tea room. It didn't quite meet my expectations, but it was good enough. We got the sampler platter which included their two specials of the day (Chicken Divan and Pasta salad) along with spinach salad.
The part about our stop at the Durning House that caused me the most excitement was seeing these leaves because they are the first real fall leaves I've seen.
Then we found Patina Green, which is a farmers market, gourmet lunch spot and antique store all in one.
For dinner we met Lisa at Patrizio's. It was okay, but they got my yellow-fin tuna way, way too done. After that I came home, opened presents and watched the Rangers clinch their spot in The World Series! Yea!
It was a fun day!
