We enjoyed some of their hand-crafted beers, an appetizer of a Crab Pretzel, and entrees of a Seafood Pasta, Pepperjack Penne Pasta, and Walnut Dill Salmon. I definitely enjoyed this experience more than the last time I went there - many years ago. Then we went to see a movie, Hot Tub Time Machine.
It was really funny - I laughed out loud. I'm sure that some people might say that the humor was stupid, but I really enjoyed it. Overall, a good evening.

I also received yarn and ribbon from two of my three partners in the Rapunzel Scarf - Easter Theme swap. The colors are gorgeous, and I can't wait to put the scarf together!
I received these from Shelli in New York.

Irish Potatoes and Cabbage
Prep Time: 25 min
Makes: 6 servings
3 tablespoons margerine or butter
2 cups purchased coleslaw blend (from 16-oz. pkg.)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 3/4 cups water
3/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups mashed potato flakes
1/2 lb. sliced cooked corned beef, chopped (about 2 cups)
2 oz. (1/2 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese
1. Melt margerine in large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add coleslaw blend and onion; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
2. Add water, milk and salt. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in potato flakes until moistened. Add corned beef and cheese; mix well. Spread evenly over skillet.
3. Return skillet to medium heat; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated and golden brown on bottom. If desired, invert onto serving plate; sprinkle with additional cheese.
Then, to top it all off, I let the band president know that I was interested in the recently vacated position of Section Leader. I've been feeling really wishy-washy about it, not knowing exactly whether or not I was interested, and for what reasons. Well, at the end of rehearsal, the music director called me and the other Assistant Section Leader together, and said he would promote me, but to use her as Co-Section Leader. So, now I'm confused with what's happened - are we both Section Leaders, like we've both been Assistant Section Leaders for the past few years? Aargh, what a day!

I made two fabric flowers by burning the edges of different sized circles of fabric, and sewing them together. I like the effect, and I really hope my swap partner does, too.

I have been so incredibly busy the past few days. The weather was beautiful, so it was extremely busy at the Tidewater. I was supposed to have Saturday night off, after working at Huber, but I was called in to manage, and Sunday, I was supposed to manage until 3, but had to stay until 5 because it was so busy. Then I had to go to Huber. It's crazy, but my body is still sore!

I have a plan for what to send for that swap as a main item - anything extra will have to wait until I read the story again. The second is the Cookbook Swap.
Since Tom is so picky with what he eats, I think that getting new cookbooks would be a good way to change up his menu.
On another note (Tweet!) I received my forth tag in the International Tag Swap. This one was from Faith in New Zealand. I just love the ribbons she attached to it, and the butterfly was a nice touch. I'm feeling really insignificant with what I sent out, but I liked them when I sent them out. Oh, well. I'll learn eventually.
