Sarge and I were in for a big treat tonight. Unexpectedly, we were able to eat at a place with candles on the table, a real table cloth, water WITH lemon in it, and refills offered at every turn. The food was served cheerfully and the company was pleasant. And, the servers were dressed to the nines. The table was cleared without a word when we were finished. Dessert was served by candlelight also.
The unusual part about this restaurant? It was in my home, and the servers were underage and didn't require monetary tips.
The food was leftovers, but nobody cared. My oldest got the idea and the others followed along with great gusto. The middle one had the idea to get dressed up to serve us, and they did all the work themselves, down to the slicing of the lemon (see? he is getting so big!). All I had to do was cut up the meat and put the black beans on my spinach salad.
Best. Meal. Ever.
