Home Sweet Home

We didn't get home about 11:00 PM last night.

I can't really complain about the trip because once you see the luxurious bed I had to sleep in and the simply marvelous food I had for dinner, you won't have any sympathy for me!

These pics don't really show just how comfortable and inviting that bed was...all soft and plush. It was one of those beds you just want to throw your whole body down upon while uttering, "Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh". And that is exactly what I did as soon as I finished taking these pictures.

The hotel was right at Metro Detroit airport (hence the plane outside my window). The amazing thing was that I never heard one airplane all night even though they took off about every three minutes.

Before falling asleep, I had dinner in the hotel.

Just look at these Asian spring rolls - presented about as beautifully as I can imagine it being done. Everything from the green glass plate to the zigzaged mustard sauce was done to perfection. What a way to make two plain egg rolls look like so much more.
My boss ordered these crabcakes which were also quite wonderful.
What really impressed me about this dish was the lemon wrapped with tulle so that no seeds would fall into your food when you squeezed it. I love attention to the small details like that.

My entree was shrimp stuffed with crab accompanied by julienned yellow squash and zucchini...delish.........

The meeting itself went well. I learned a few things.

We did sneak out a little early, but I did not get to a nursery.
We stopped at Costco instead. I had never been to a Costco. I brought home a good-sized box of food items and a pepper mill.


  1. Between the bed and the food, I don't know which I would have enjoyed the most! The food is presented so fabulously and I really thought that tulle wrapped lemon a fantastic idea!! By the way, welcome back home:-)

  2. That good looks so good. And, I am going to steal that lemon idea. Guess it is all in the presentation.

  3. Zoey,
    Costco is one of my favorite places to shop. Since they built one so close (about 3 miles), we are there at least once per week.Their produce is great as are many of their bakery goods. They have the best prices in town on gas.
    (Today $2.95 gal for regular)
    Glad you had a good trip :-)

  4. Welcome home! Glad you had a nice business trip. My pal who is learning to be a chef would love to see these plates.
    My bed is really cushy too and I appreciate it every day.
