Christmas Lunch

I had lunch today with my former "partner in crime" from our last place of employment. Like most folks, we say we'll get together more often, but life seems to get in the way. So we have lunch around Christmas and in May/June when we celebrate our birthdays. Neither of us skis, so we decided to postpone our holiday lunch until after the huge snow dump melted.

We met at Gustav's for a hearty German meal. I had chicken schnitzel served with red cabbage and flavorful mashed potatoes. Yummmm! Then we had dessert (hey, we only get together twice a year!). The waitress recommended the chocolate bread pudding served in a martini glass. Perfect ending to the meal.

The best part, of course, was the company. We shake our heads over the changes at our former workplace and the individuals who have climbed the ladder since we departed. And we're glad we're not there any more. We both love to read, and she volunteers at her local library's used book store, so the conversation usually gets around to books. And we catch up on what each other's family is doing.

A good way to spend a Saturday.
