as much as i long to be a lady who lunches, i am not (*sigh*)
but i do enjoy a nice lunch out!
some of my earliest memories are of my mother and grandmother dressing me up and taking me out to lunch at a nice hotel or a ladies' tea room.
as i grew older and would come home from college, my mother always enjoyed meeting me for lunch at a quaint luncheon spot around the town square.
the menu was pretty much the same....
we always start with an iced fruit tea
followed by a chicken salad on a croissant
and some sort of fruity ice-box pie for dessert.
i wish we could escape right now!
(but i'll have to settle for my salad i made in the corporate cafeteria)
