Went out to Vail to visit Meri, Tim, and Ella. I hadn’t skiied in about ten years, so I took a lesson. This was my view from the lodge at lunch, where I ate a cheeseburger and then went back for a plate of pasta. Skiing is hard work!
we went to Union Trust for dinner, which was incredible. The food actually outdid the space, which upon walking in I thought would be tough to do: I think it used to be a bank. We were so hungry that I completely forgot to take any pictures until the end of the meal.
Chicanos – you used to be in the living room of a house. Now your restaurant is in a mobile home on a lot. Your portions are enormous and you could probably feed a family of 4 for under $20. You make the best Mexican food I’ve had outside of Mexico. I love you. Don’t ever change.
I generally think Valentine’s Day is totally overdone, but I’ve had two that were really terrific. One was when I was a little girl, and it was just me and my mom at the house – I’m not sure where my dad and Colly were. There was a huge snowstorm, and my mom and I bundled up and walked over to Januzzi’s, because I’d heard on the radio that they were making heart shaped pizzas for Valentine’s Day. We got our pizza and our rose and I had a nice snowy Valentine’s Day with my mom. So this year, I was telling her that story about a week before Valentine’s Day, and she tracked down a heart shaped pizza for me. Sweetest. Mom. Ever.
