Afterwards, Steve & I checked out Cassanova, a new'ish restaurant in town. Lexington has a shortage of good Italian restaurants so I was curious to see how this one fared. We got there about 7:30 & the place was about 3/4 full, a good sign maybe or it could have been everyone using their Groupon. They brought us some warm bread & oil which was really good. Steve humored me by splitting the surf & turf with me. It was a Filet Mignon with either Swordfish or Salmon. We ordered the Salmon. When the server brought out our food I thought the fish looked like grilled chicken. We asked the server if that was salmon & she had no idea. It was swordfish. It was actually pretty good. Steve didn't like the steak, I thought it was OK but overcooked. I always have to try the tirimisu at any new Italian restaurant. It wasn't the best I have had but it was pretty good. If we go back, we will try their cheaper pasta dishes & skip their meat/fish specials. Overall, by Lexington standards Cassanova's was good.
Saturday I spent the morning at the gym. I started the first Total Immersion lesson in hopes to improve my dreadfully slow swim. I will give more details on TI in a later post. I swam/drilled for over an hour then hit the Yoga class. I felt great afterwards. Love, love yoga. The more I practice the more I love it.
Saturday I had girls nights with my girls Liz, Gwyn & Beth. We try to get together once a month or so but it seems like forever since all four of us have been able to make girls night. One of us usually remembers to bring our camera but for some reason none of us remembered to take a pic. Will try to do better next time!
Sunday morning we got started on our Christmas shopping. Steve has 9 grand kids so it pretty much takes several trips to the store to get all our shopping done. We usually get 1 outfit & a few toys for each. Today we knocked out the clothing. I think we made it all of 2 hours before getting hungry & cranky. I did pick up one fun thing for Karma before leaving the store.
|Poor Karma, she has no idea what I am up to|
|Just you wait until your sleeping!|
|Get this damn thing off me!|
Below is last years performance of the Nigerian carol "Betelehemu". From what I read they perform this one every year. It was really, really cool performance.
Have a great week y'all!
