A Monday Evening Adventure

Happy T Day everyone and a special big hello to the Tuesday Tea Gang.
 Monday was a snowy morning,and  then when storm cleared out, it ended up being a beautiful winter evening.
I needed to run up to a store in a town near mine to get the hubby a little gift for the holiday, so my daughter came along and we ended up doing a little window shopping, holiday light viewing and had a yummy  dinner out.

The sunset was actually quite stunning, with the fresh snow and the not yet frozen lake.
No boats tied up to these docks at this time of year.
And we were planning on stopping at the grocery store to get something for dinner, but then we passed the crepe and coffee/tea shop, which was almost empty, and it was a beautiful winter night but we were hungry, so we decided to do something different.
 I had this yummy crepe sandwich made with turkey, avocado, bacon and cheddar cheese along with this tangy sauce. It came with this side salad.
My drink was a hot mulled cider. It was warm and a little different. I really enjoyed it and thought I;d take a photo of the sign so maybe I could experiment making it at home.

Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join in the T Day fun. 
One more beautiful holiday tree on a festive night.
Thanks for visiting.

Those decorations are so festive! I've never had a crepe sandwich, but it looks appealing. I'd definitely order it if I ever saw it on a menu :) I often heat cider and add cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and fruit slices, but that recipe you had makes me want to try cranberry in it. Thx for the idea :) Happy T Tuesday!

First, I LOVE your blog header this month. It is awesome.

You did a better job of finding lights than we did. I swear, I didn't find anything I wanted to take photos of. Even downtown was blah! Several of the girls said so, too, so it wasn't just my bah humbug mood taking over. LOVE the gazebo shot.

I adore crepes. It's something I've never been able to make with any success. I bet they'd have a vegetarian crepe or two, also. Yours looks like they were filling. I also appreciated the "real" salad, too. So many places give you head lettuce here in winter, unless it's an upscale establishment. I think yours looks wonderful.

I've made hot mulled cider in my crock pot at Christmas before. I use cinnamon sticks and cloves, along with black pepper, and lemon. I know I'm leaving a few things out, but those are the things I remember. I let the cider cook all day long in the crock pot and the house smells just like Christmas at the end of the day.

Thanks for sharing your lights, the crepes, and your hot mulled cider with us for T this Tuesday.

Mmmhmmm, that savory crepe sandwich sounds and looks delicious, as does the cider. That last tree and its lights - covered in snow, so much snow - wow - I am glad we didn't have much (yet). Happy t-day!

Carol said...

Beautiful photos ! Looks like a great time out with your daughter and the food looks so good....the Hot Cider sounds good too :)

What a fun night out with your daughter. The decorations and lakefront photos are beautiful. Don't you love when a simple errand turns into an adventure? I need to do that more often. I'm typically too focused on my to-do list - lol.

I love the sound of crepes for dinner. They look yummy.

Happy T Day, Erika!

Eileen Bergen said...

How fun that you turned a simple errand into a fun outing with your daughter. Beautiful photos - especially the gazebo all lit up and the lakefront at sunset.

Eileen Bergen said...

Oops, I forgot to add ...

Crepes for dinner - yum!

Happy T Day, Erika!
