Girlfriends

About a week and a half ago I went out with some girlfriends. I am not sure why I didn't blog about it but it was such a nice time I thought I would let you all know, now. One of my college friends is moving to Portland and so we went up to see the house she is renting and she took us to some local restaurants. First she took us to a Cuban restaurant! It was so good. We sat outside and then watched the clouds roll in hoping not to get wet. We actually left just as it started to drop a few raindrops. Phew. We had fun ordering food that some of us had no idea what we were really ordering and we also ordered drinks that would be a complete mystery as well. I liked mine, the yellow can in the picture, and Becky had a coconut pop that was so good, green pop can, but no one really liked the tea that Karen and Kim got.
Here is the food. The first plate is mine (the beans and rice was incredible) and the second is Becky's plate.












Then Kim took us to a dessert place. Boy was that fun. They have a display of their desserts and when you choose what you want you go sit down and they come get your requests. This is what the 4 of us chose.
Doesn't that look incred-ible! It may have been the best chocolate cake I have EVER eaten. If you are ever in Portland looking for a great dessert place try PIX!

It was such a nice evening. Good friends, good food and then we ended the night talking a bit about books and I was able to borrow some books from these friends. Perfect night for me.

THANK YOU GIRLS! I love my nights I get to spend with you.
