I'm Alive

Yes I'm still alive, although I know it's been a week since I've posted *sheepish grin* A large group of family has been in town for over a week, and we've been doing so much with them that I've barely been home in the evenings! One of my cousins had a birthday yesterday, so we went to Domenica's to celebrate (it's also the restaurant we went to for my birthday not too long ago...yay for November babies!) I had an amazing time not only because the food was mind-blowing (would you expect anything less from a John Besh restaurant?), but also because it's attached to The Roosevelt hotel. The Roosevelt is probably the most famous hotel in New Orleans (it's been around since 1893) and they almost didn't restore it after Katrina, but I thank my lucky stars they did because look how amazing it is!!!   (bear with me because I took these with my new phone!)

The north entrance.

Lobby Hallway

Precious crystal and glass ornaments hanging from the trees.

They even had a gingerbread display! They had a wee lil' shotgun house and a replica of St. Louis Cathedral (see below)!

I didn't get a chance to take a picture of my dinner because I'd scarfed it down like a wolverine before I even thought about snapping a photo...but I did remember when dessert came! And luckily for you, that was the best part!

I got the Frittole di Zucca (pumpkin & ricotta fritters with an eggnog rum sauce)

And my mother-in-law got the Meyer Lemon Semifreddo. Yes, that's roasted marshmallow and pomegranate on the outside. If there isn't food in heaven, I will weep.

And just for good measure, here's a random picture of Whiskers. Remember when I said he claims ownership of all our tree skirts? Yeah. This was taken about 30 seconds after I'd arranged the skirt neatly and lovingly under the tree. I stood back to admire my handiwork, and Whiskers seized the opportunity to declare himself King of the Christmas Tree. He's such a man.


Your dog is so cute! lol
And that food is yummy! Looks like a great week.

O....M.....G.....I am now planning a trip to New Orleans for the sole purpose of meeting a plate of those Frittole de Zucca. Pumpkin...ricotta...eggnog...mmmmmm.

Wow, those are beautiful decorations!! (You're dog is so cute!!)

Glad you had fun with your family :-)
