Out for Supper

Thanks to the kindness of my mother-in-law for babysitting on short notice, we were able to get out for supper tonight. We went to place called "Barolo Italian Buffet" at the very west end of Carling Avenue (for those who are living in Ottawa). I've been there about 5 times, mostly for lunch, but this was Karen's first visit. I think it's a pretty good buffet. There is a good salad selection, including some grilled vegetables. There are hot and cold selections, which include pizza and tonight some decent roast beef. The chef will also cook up some pasta to order for you. I had fettucci with meat sauce, mushrooms, bacon and garlic. Soft drinks were included in the price. The desserts are pretty average (somewhat better than the desserts at the average Chinese buffet, but definitely the weak point of the restaurant). I really like the place.

Afterwards we went to Zavida Coffee House for some cafe latte. Unfortunately we forgot to order decaf so we'll probably be wired for most of the night. We ended up sitting there for about an hour, having a great conversation about our strengths, weaknesses, hopes and ambitions. We got home just in time to tuck the children in. What a great evening!
