FRONCHE Fries, FRONCHE Dressing, FRONCHE Toast...

I feel so Frenchie French in this French Connection dress that I scored for $19 at TJ Maxx last week. I have already worn it like, eleventy-five times. Okay, scratch that. I've worn it three times already, BUT STILL. I love it.

Wore it out with my sis, cousin and hubby Saturday night to the fancy schmancy theater (aka the new Alamo Drafthouse in the KC Power & Light district), where we saw Ted with Marky Mark.

First of all, that movie? Was HILARIOUS.

And secondly? I see no reason, EVER, to go to another theater. Why? When we can purchase adult beverages and relax in modern day barkaloungers?

And thirdly? We had The. Best. Meal. EVER after the movie. I can't believe I have never been to Cafe Trio, but it was da BOMB. Every single meal that each of us had was deeeee-lish. I had the lamb lollipops with a side of grilled brussel sprouts, carrot puree (I know, it sounds gross but it was NOM NOMS, espesh with the ginger in it). Tom had rainbow trout with roasted potatoes, my sis had scallops in a Frangelico sauce (GUH), and my cousin had pistachio-encrusted tilapia with a smokey raspberry chutney. 

Awwwww YEAH, baby.

Cafe Trio? We WILL be back. Oh yes, we WILL.

I love it when I find a restaurant like that. So good you literally relive it later. It sounds amazing.

You are getting hotter by the minute, or in this case, by the post. Work It.

Noe - one of my favorite places is Watermarc in Laguna. Their fois gras brulee is possibly the best thing I've ever eaten. You should try it when you're in the neighborhood, just cuz you can. For me.

Catherine - why thank you, my dear! I'm hungry again myself, but since it's 11 p.m., I should probably just go to bed.

Whitley - oh, it's worked, girl. Thanks mama. You rock.
