When Vogon came in for lunch today, he asked me if I was feeling adventurous. It wasn't that much of a leap -- Sabatino's Sausage Company recently opened a location nearby and he wanted to try it out.

From the moment we walked in, I figured it couldn't be too bad after I immediately identified the background music as Sinatra. We were seated by a server who initially guessed we were a party of two since Laurel was shorter than the half-wall separating the entrance from the dining area, but he was attentive and called Laurel 'Princess', which charmed her.

Our drinks were served in goblets, which was a little tricky for Laurel (I carry "bendy" straws), and we were given a basket of warm, crusty Italian bread while we decided what to order. Vogon went with rigatoni and sausage, Laurel and I shared an order of manicotti, and we were all delighted by the cream soup that came with our entrees. I usually don't eat that much outside of holiday meals and we still brought home leftovers, which I suspect won't last long. (:

edit 21 Sep 05: The location didn't last long either. Several weeks later, they were closed and had a handwritten sign in the window that they were closed for a family emergency when we stopped by and shortly afterward, they closed for good. Too bad.

I imported the songs from your holiday mix disc to iTunes, then Vogon commented that he had When My Heart Finds Christmas on CD and dug it out of his music stash for me to listen to, so Laurel and I are listening to Christmas music now. (:

i love that! laurel will remember this music for years. :D in my house, the kids get indignant if anyone listens to christmas music before my birthday, it's the official start of the holiday season. a lot of good memories there.

oh, and if i didn't tell you before, those duct tape wrapped presents were priceless!

LOL I didn't even see this post, but you were dead on the money, my leftovers were gone just over an hour after you posted it.

I vote we go back often! ;)

Laurel's having the leftover manicotti tonight since she's been asking since her first afternoon snack when it will be dinnertime.

Motion seconded, although now that I know their juices are canned it might be easier to bring a straw cup for Laurel. (:

Now that you mention it, it probably isn't a bad idea to add a straw cup to your usual luggage -- the bendy straws appear to have been a hit, so why not a straw cup?

And, she is obviously in a growth spurt because suddenly none of her clothes fit and she's eating everything in sight!

Note to self: Keep fingers well clear of childling's mouth, lest they get teeth marks.
