Knights to Remember

This weekend we celebrated my 30th birthday, planned thoroughly & thoughtfully by my loving husband, Dave. On Friday, he surprised me with dinner reservations at Table Fifty-Two along with two extra dinner guests, both of my sisters Jill & Jessica.

The company was great and the feast was scrumptious including southern specialties such as goat cheese biscuits, deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes, mac n cheese and collard greens... and those were just the sides!

If you are not familiar with Table Fifty-Two, Co-owner & Chef Art Smith is the personal chef to Oprah and he was also featured on the first season of Top Chef Masters. Reservations generally need to be made months in advance so I was blown away by this thoughtful dinner :-)

The next "knight" we had a truly unique experience where about 15 of us headed out to Medieval Times for dinner and a tournament. We took a limo just to "class" it up a bit and dined (with our hands) on dragon blood soup (tomato bisque), baby dragon (roasted chicken), dragon ribs (spare rib) and potatoes. I also had the largest glass chalice of virgin daiquiri on earth.

Sadly, our Blue Knight lost his duel...

...but the night was definitely a winner!



About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
