It has been an entire summer (and then some) since I have written anything meaningful... or anything at all for that matter. The last month of Bozeman, traveling back to Nantucket, and the entire summer have been a blur of late nights, long days, and endless amounts of fun. But now, the craziness has started to dwindle, and I actually have some time to catch up on April in Bozeman, the drive back east, and all the wonderful scenes of Nantucket in the summer. Get ready, because I am about to become a serial blogger for this week, and hopefully be keeping up with the posts in the months to come. (Notice I said "hopefully")
April in Bozeman was awesome. Work ended for me, classes came to an end for Pete, and we were able to spend a little more time enjoying ourselves. For Pete's birthday (which he'll kill me if I say the date) we went to a little italian restaurant called Blacksmith's with our good friends Jen and Ced. The food was SO GOOD. Sorry for the lack of descriptions - it was a long time ago so I am going off memories, but everything was great! It was a really cute little restaurant, with a sort of open kitchen, and maybe 10 tables. For appetizers, we got some fried calamari, mussels, and a couple of salads (mine was a ceasar that was excellent).
On the entrees end, Pete had a lamb dish, and I wound up choosing the squick ink pasta, both of which were excellent. There was definitely some leftovers coming home with us though - I was stuffed!! We also weaseled our way into free dessert by throwing Pete under the bus and announcing that it was his birthday celebration! The dessert we chose was some sort of dulce de leche amazingness that Jen and I absolutely devoured. The entire meal was just the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. And while it won't be one of our regular spots (just because it was on the fancier/more expensive side) we will definitely know where to come when we want a nice dinner!
So happy to finally have some time to blog again... Stay tuned for more posts on the Wine Dinner at Plonk, our adventures along the drive back east, and another summer for the books in Nantucket!
