It was cold and blowing winds were driving rain when we set out last evening on our tropical adventure. You'll have that in Central Indiana in March. We were just thankful we didn't see any snow flakes.
The friends who went with us on this adventure were Keith, named after me - - - - WAY after me - - - and Janell. Keith and Janell are the parents of two of my students and they "bought" me at our school auction.
Here's how THAT works, they bid on me and paid the school for me. Now my part of the bargain is taking them out for an evening. This equatorial adventure was my end of the deal.
Our tropical destination was Red Lobster, which is of course as tropical as you can get here in the midwest, far from any sea shore.
Janell and I sported our Wisconsin gear, both being native Badgers. Janell is also the friend who gave me a Wisconsin blankie for Christmas.
We enjoyed shrimp, lobster, crag legs, tilapia and steak in the tropical paradise known to others simply as Red Lobster, then we headed over to DeBrand for dessert.
I've raved over DeBrand before, so shall refrain from doing so here other than to show you the delights in which we indulged.
I had a semi-sweet hot chocolate with whipped cream and a dark chocolate candy wafer on top.
It was yummy.
Fisherhubby had a four shot Americano espresso in a cup big enough to swim in.
Gourmet miniatures - raspberry, mocha (with the face), and apricot. I'm telling you, you've never had anything like these unless you've been to or ordered from DeBrand.
Deluxe caramel apples. Granny Smith apple wedges and almonds around a chocolate cup filled with the butteriest caramel I've ever tasted.
I ate every last bite!
