Lunch out

It's been ages since I last had a decent restaurant lunch. That's not to say there aren't good restaurants around, it's just that I brown bag it 95 per cent of the time. The other five per cent I usually grab something on the go (caf fast food).

Had an account rep come out from Toronto to meet with me and my most marvellous manager. We decided to have lunch (the manager couldn't make it), so we went to a newish restaurant in the area--newish because it's only been around for about a year and a half...difficult to get into. Because it's not the standard roadhouse fare, all the office workers want to go there, so you can't just do an impromptu lunch...

Anyway...had a bison burger with southwest aioli and frites. VERY filling but very good. Squeezed in some dessert--an upside down lemon meringue pie: little blobbles of meringue topped with lemon curd, then with cream and then shortbread biscuits. Blueberries were hidden throughout. Was very happy...full, but happy.
