Today was a basic day, we both slept in and enjoyed a lazy morning. Took a tour of Las Vegas to get pictures of the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower. Enjoyed some scenery from the Strip. We took in a lot of the same corner by the Excaliber Casino because they have no street parking, it’s all casino parking. Luckily one didn’t have their check point guy and we were able to get to the top deck to snag some pictures. We finally succeeded in our quest for pictures and called it a day.
We went back to the Motel to kick back and relax, awaiting our reservation at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill, being funded by Grandma & Grandpa (Dalton/Deborah) for a surprise birthday present for KJ. I was lucky enough to be the driver. :-)
Made it to our point of interest, much easier than our trip earlier today. Was taken to our seat and was treated to one of the best meals I’ve had in awhile. Everything was in pottery style dishes. We started with a cheese plate – English blue, Spanish Gouda, and Vermont Cheddar. It came with olives and a raspberry jam. I opted for the fish and chips; the tarter sauce was so good, I wanted to lick the bowl it was in. Kirsten went with the Shepard’s Pie, she claimed it was the best she has ever had. For dessert I had Gordon’s signature dish of Sticky Toffee Pudding and KJ did the Snickerdoodle Madeliene. I had a root beer that was smooth and better than any I’ve had before, hopefully I can find it in my world. The meal and atmosphere were so neat…and I’m excited that I had the opportunity to experience it. My foodie heart was finally satisfied on this trip. ?
Back to the motel to get my stuff organized and packed for the trip home. It’s been a great week…but I’m ready to sleep in my own bed and see my cat.
