Too Much Gelato? Too Many Books? Not A Chance!

I am kind of rehashing my groupon thoughts...forgive me!

Ok...I have a love/hate for Groupons...we have used most of the ones I bought but I have a small yet scary stack of expired ones...I know that the restaurant is supposed to always honor the amount you pay...but that kind of scares me...and I don't even really feel that comfy using the I am not buying any more. But...last night was our last chance to use a Groupon and it was a lovely experience!

We had dinner and gelato at Cafe Gelato! Yummy and fun! We have wanted to try this restaurant for a long time but it's far enough away and...smack dab in the middle of the University Of Delaware make it almost too far. The front of the restaurant is a gelato just go in and get gelato...homemade on sight gelato...yum! After dinner I wanted Creme Brûlée Toffee gelato which they were out when I was almost finished with my salted caramel and strawberry gelato...two scoops that did not touch until Den smooshed them...our server...lovely Laurel brought me a scoop of the toffee one! OMG! So good...we will go back!

Gelato, amazing food, great wine...we loved it!

After...too full to finish! Plus the gelato melted into each other!

I hate when food touches! Have I ever shared that I actually only buy oversized plates so food does not touch? And...I have a set of Crate And Barrel divided ceramic plates! They look like cafeteria plates! I love them! Am I going bald?

Not a care in the world that he smooshed my gelato!

Reading this still...a tragedy infuses the lives of Hallie and Gus...the night of their prom...this will affect them forever! Really enjoying this book!

Today I think we are taking a drive to Wyebrook Farms...for an organic, sulfite, nitrate free corn dog? Now that's a quest! It's a beautiful day here...perfect for a quick little drive and that hot dog!

How are you relaxing today?

Happy Friday!


  1. Oh, that look...certainly not happy about the 'smooshed' gelato!...ha, ha, I'm with you on that, Patty! So nice to see what you've been up to these days; as for me, you read my latest post + I will be 'dog and house watching' starting tonite. (family leaving for a month to Italy, and me staying home...sigh! Of course, they will be eating the best gelato in the 'world'!

  2. Happy Friday! Looked delicious despite the smooshed gelato!


  3. Smooshed gelato? So uncool.

    What a funny quirk. I love hearing about people's quirks.

    1. I can't eat stacked ice cream either unless the colors match!

  4. Sounds like a wonderful experience! Enjoy the weekend.

  5. I think he looks rather pleased with himself for smooshing your gelato. lol

  6. I am not a fan of food touching either. I will put it on one plate but I tend to separate it as I eat it.

    1. That is so funny...I eat one food at a time too...the messy food first...
