When I Grow Up...

... I want to be Kelly Liken. Having trained at one of the best restaurants in the country, she is now the chef/owner of her very own posh and fantastic restaurant in uber posh and gastronomically competitive Vail, CO. She is really nice, totally adorable, monstrously talented, and, yeah, she is my age. Bugger.

I was honestly too distracted by the food to take pictures (the three bottles of wine before dinner may have had something to do with the distraction) but suffice it to say that it was a very memorable meal, due to the combination of excellent service, creative and well-executed food, and of course, the wine.

I have Kelly to thank for this, my new most favorite quote, as well as the best duck breast I have ever had in my entire duck breast-eating life.

" "When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said. "

p.s. blogger has been c*&^blocking your comments! I tried to leave one a couple of days ago using mozilla and it refuses to show the word verification! it did it to me again tonight but i switched over to IE, and no problem. is google favoring microsoft?!? or are they just crappy about fixing their CSS problems? :-P

That sounds really nice!

When you open your restaurant, can I at least get a free appetizer? Thanks.

Wow, Blogger is screwing up.

Amanda - I was/am so jealous! C*** blocking. Hee. Yeah, every once in a while Blogger gets a bug up its a** and all goes to pot. Sorry. It's happened before. And I have no idea what CSS is so I cannot comment. Sorry again.

JC - You are so in. Totally.
