Saturday we had lunch at the Goda Cafe
- I'd seen an article about them some time ago claiming that they served goat, which I knew iraunink
would be interested in. She was. About six weeks ago I got one of those restaurant deals - $10 got me $25 off of a $35 minimum bill. I picked it up - we finally made it there.
$35 is way
too much for two people there! We might
have hit $35 with two appetizers, two dinner entrees, and two desserts - but I doubt. As it was, we had one appetizer, one entree, and one sandwich, and it was plenty
of food! All that and two cans of pop was $21 exactly. Oh, you get a bowl of soup as part of your meal - before you order, even! Everything except the starches was somewhat spicy - call it a 3 or 4 on a 1-10 scale, where 10 was a Sri Lanka Curry House medium. We'll be going back sometime with one or two people, to actually use the coupon.
After that, we went chair shopping. CB2, Slumberland Outlet, Borofka's (where Wickes used to be by Southdale), Gabberts, Slumberland, HOM Furniture, and Ikea. Our favorite was the Palmona Swivel Chair
, to be had at Slumberland and HOM. Unfortunately, the fabric on the floor sample was ... not to our taste. But one of the available fabrics at Slumberland made us both go "ooh, I want that!". We're unlikely to pull the trigger for 3-4 months, maybe longer, but that's our current chair to beat (at not quite $500 each - we want two).
If anyone is garage-saling in one of the higher class neighborhoods, and sees something like it - doesn't have to swivel, or else an armless chair, let us know? We're looking for something side/accent chair sized - i.e., on the smaller side.
Sunday I did laundry, we didn't get much else accomplished - Irene had a dead day.
Tonight I made sauteed bell peppers and onions to go with brats. We'll do that again sometime.
