Last night Frank and I had our Friday night date....except it was Monday night. We ran a few errands early in the morning in Roanoke after Dale came to work on our house. About 2:30 we headed to Auburn. I wanted to exchange some blouses we bought in Mobile, I wanted to get Frank some plaid shorts I saw on a television Penny's ad, and I wanted to check out a new consignment shop called Sydney's.....and then we were planning to take advantage of Red Lobsters 15.00 Summer Extraveganza and try the four course meal they were offering. I figured the meal would be smaller portions since you were getting four course for less than two courses cost. Boy, was I surprised. Course one - I had potato bacon soup and Frank had New England clam chowder. It was a full serving and really good. I could have actually stopped there. Course two was our salads and cheese bisquits (I love those things). Course three was the entree - I had fried shrimp (expected maybe 9...they were nice size shrimp....not popcorn size)....I got 20! Frank had wood-grilled shrimp skewers and habañero shrimp bites....he got two skewers of 6-8 shrimp and a plate full of the little bites....plus cole slaw and rice pilaf. Course four - Thank heavens....this is where they did hold back a bit....it was just perfect....it was a to die for browni wedge, with a scoop of ice cream, and then chocolate and caramel sauce drizzled over the entire thing. Frank and I had a great time. The service was phenomenal and our waitress Kim was the best. I got to see a former student (he has already graduated from college) named Jimmy and catch up briefly, I got to flirt with my husband shamefully, and it did not cost us an arm and a leg. The 15.00 we paid for the meal was definitely date night price....but a lot easier on the pocketbook than some of the plates Red Lobster serves. All in all a wonderful time was had by all. I love date nights with my husband!
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
