I know, seafood of all varieties are not for everyone. I hate to admit to her that I have even had escargot (and liked it). To keep things balanced, I also ordered a side of french fries.
My friend, almost predictable, ordered the Eggplant Tower appetizer. I have had this myself on more than one occasion and I have to say, it's a winner and tastes even better than it looks. However, that melty, gooey, cheesyness is fairly well represented.
We laugh and laugh through dinner, about her recent life experiences and I have to admit, it was great to see her light up. This is a woman who says what is on her mind and appropriateness be damned. I love it!
I really do not have room for dessert, but to keep our table and the conversation going, we share a slice of cheesecake.
We have agreed our next dinner will be at my house and I can't help but wonder if she has had a second date since I saw her last. Girlfriends, no matter what our age, always keep a woman Fed Well.
