    Mmmm I loooove dates! I saw a little recipe last night in a magazine for dates stuffed with blue cheese and topped with an almond… yum!

      I was pleasantly surprised at how yummy it was. I bet your recipe would be a treat too!

    So glad you finally got it there. Our friends waited TWO HOURS in line there for Mother’s Day. I thought they were CRAZY, and they thought they were too until they had the food (again) and decided they’d do it all over again.

    Horray for dates – they’re so good and super versatile. A great natural sweetener.

    Have a great weekend!

      2 hours is EXCESSIVE! I don’t care how good the food is!

    I love, love, love dates! Dates with nut butter. Yum! I keep reading about dates with bacon and I want to try them next time we buy bacon (and I remember).

    Getting into restaurants around here isn’t too hard, although the chain ones seem to get more crowded for whatever reason. I won’t wait more than 20 minutes for a table. We hate crowds and if the wait is that long, it means it is too crowded for us.

      I’m a date newbie! The ones at Tasty n’ Sons were pretty amazing! I would have them again.

      The thing with Portland restaurants is that we rarely go to a chain. We want to try the new and famous restaurants so there’s more of a wait for sure. I rarely want to wait longer than about 30 minutes or so.

    HI Lisa. I LOVE the look of the date appetizer. Hope you are having a fantastic Friday.
