Yay for melatonin. Though I do feel a bit groggy this am, I did sleep through the night. I had a chat with the pharmacist and she gave me some heavy duty ones from behind the counter and told me, "Don't worry, this really works well." I don't care if it's the power of suggestion or the placebo effect, whatever gets the job done is fine by me.
Dinner was marvelous as I knew it would be. Though I was intrigued by the Tripe Pizza, I ended up ordering the catch of the day, Aile de Raie, which sounds oh so much better than the English "Skate". The ex had the cassoulet while Serge got the lamb. The appetizers were tomato tart, bison tartare (to maim for) and a special foie gras that had a buckwheat pancake, baked beans, cottage cheese and I don't know what but the flavor combo was to die for. We shared a delicious Maple Syrup Pie for dessert. Nobody was very happy when I whipped out the camera as you can see by the look on spouse's face.
Here's a sign I came across from some site that features signs from around the world. I love being adventurous when eating out which is why I almost got the tripe pizza. I have no idea what fried pimple is but I'm thinking they made a mistake with pickle. Boiled cake sounds kind of weird, but hey, it's cake, how bad could it be?
Finally, something I've been meaning to post since last week. Here's a clip from a recent Jeopardy episode (my guilty pleasure) where Alex made a joke. Gosh it was a groaner.
