Last week, David and I brought Cherryl to Albany ( our county seat ) for dinner at their very famous Beehive Restaurant ( Fort Griffin General Merchandise ) for her birthday. The Restaurant/Steakhouse was named one of the Top 10 Best Small Town Steak Houses in Texas by Texas Monthly Magazine. Heck, it's even got some gaming RPG thing going on! It was great, and I had some lamb, which I hadn't had in 10 years.. The taste/smell wasn't as strong as I had remembered, and it was quite good, actually.
The facade of the restaurant is that of an old time cowboy saloon early frontier type thing, and the inside is all wood floors/walls, so it was pretty neat. They're supposed to be opening a branch of their steakhouse in downtown abilene real soon ( from what we heard ) which would be a good thing coz david's dad loves the place.

On Girls' Day out on Friday, Cindy and I brought along Elaine, who had come to Abilene for a month from Taiwan for a vaction as well as diving into learning the English Language. Brave girl! We brought her to the Asian Noodle House for lunch and to the Hardin Simmons Chapel where David and I got married, to show her the beautiful stained glass WALL
Also, I had been cooking pizza and buffalo wings for dinner the past 2 days - what with superbowl season and all, and so now david has boy food leftovers for late night snacks. YAY! Ooo.. i have to remind him there's also turkey burgers that I grilled, that are in the freezer section.....

Last but not least, the last 2 days have been pretty mild, and it looks like it's going to be pretty mild for another few days before another icy blast comes along. If only if could always be sunny days with a temperature of 68 - 72F, then it would be perfect.
