Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Ali Baba

Last week I asked hubby if we where going out to dinner for our Anniversary and if so, where?  He suggested Ali Baba in Newark but I wanted something more elegant however, didn’t offer an alternative.   Leaving the house a decision still hadn’t been made but it didn’t matter because hubby needed to break his fast (Ramadan), so he grabbed a box of Triscuits and we decided as we drove down the driveway.

The Chesapeake Inn in Chesapeake City, Maryland is close to home and elegant enough to celebrate a Wedding Anniversary. Hubby was in a better mood once he had a piece of warm bread and a cup of hot tea. (old man) – lol.   The Chesapeake Inn has been in operation for several years, I still remember my first time there, they had Steak TarTar as an appetizer, now raw meat is no longer a menu option nor a healthy eating choice.   The Inn overlooks the C&D Canal with small boats and mini yachts docked as the owners drink and socialize on the deck below the Dining Room.   There is also a separate entrance to a club with live music where adults can drink (responsively) and party the night away. Our server, Julie was fantastic and the salads and entrees were excellent.  Hubby had a Red Oak Salad and Stuffed Flounder, I had the Cobb Salad and Maryland Rockfish which was served with rice and perfectly steamed squash and zucchini.  The Cobb Salad was large but contained only small traces of fresh crab meat.  For dessert I ordered Peach Cobbler a la Mode but it contained a bit too much cinnamon for my liking.  Hubby ordered a slice of Red Velvet Cake and along with half of my  entree we took it home, it was awesome the next day.

It was a perfect Anniversary Dinner and we look forward to another 22 years of marriage!

I remember the days when you could purchase clothing at Goodwill for 1 or 2 dollars.  Of course back then, thrifing wasn’t as popular or considered a chosen alternative to department stores.  There were always vintage boutiques where you expected to pay more, but never at Goodwill – not until now.  Here are a few items that I found at Goodwill in Thorndale, PA which ranged in price from $3.50 to $5.00, this location also receives unsold shoes from Target which is a good deal.

If you purchase shoes from GW, make sure to disinfect them using alcohol, bleach/water or disinfectant spray or all 3 – I always spray new shoes as well.
