Several weeks ago, I told you about a disappointing Italian dinner the wife and I had. Tonight we made up for it by enjoying an absolutely wonderful meal at Biaggi's in Salt Lake City.
I had this:
Grilled chicken, bowtie pasta, roasted red peppers, crispy Italian cured ham, sautéed red onions and peas tossed in our Alfredo sauce with Asiago cheese.
And Celeste chose:
FETTUCCINI WITH LOBSTER
Black fettuccini tossed with lobster, wild mushrooms and a homemade lobster-cream sauce.
Everything there was great: classy atmosphere, delicious food... even reasonable prices. And a server named Crystal took very good care of us. I highly recommend this place!
I'd now like to publish my first entry in a feature I'll call Stuff George Carlin Said.
I've already quoted him a few times since starting my blog two months ago, indicating that I really like him. There's a vast store of his material available, so I will periodically put up a short (or maybe not-so-short) quote with a few words of my own commentary. For the premier edition, I've chosen a one-liner:
"Did you notice that several years ago everything got different?"
Yeah, I've often noticed that and said, "What happened? I liked things how they were!" And yet, in some ways everything is the same as it ever was. Weird, huh?
Finally, to help my readers (both of you) get to know me a little better, here is a list of 39 more things I really like, in no particular order:
Ice cold Coca-Cola in glass bottles
Lasagna and garlic bread
Ruger single action revolvers
Starry nights in the mountains
