Avs Game

Some friends from work and I organized an outing to an Avalanche hockey game last Saturday. We had a blast (I work with some crazy people). The Avs started out really strong, dominating possession for most of the first half of the game and were up 2-0 at one point. Then they got lame and the Canucks came back and tied it 2-2 then ended up winning in overtime. We still had a great time!

Oh Chris. One of my favorite people. He tripped up the stairs carrying his loaded nachos and got sour cream all over his face. Classic!!!
In the front row is Chris, Kim, Mike, Russ and I. Rheu and Carmen in the back row.
Back row Stacey and Russ, front row, me, Chris, Kim and Mike.
We all had a great time! Nurses are some fun but crazy folks!

Hello all!! I am alive! :) I know it has been forever since I have posted and I thought about trying to go back and post in chronological order and update you on skiing and my holidays home but I decided to post my most recent photos instead. This last week has been all about food! Great food! It is restaurant week in Denver (which is actually 3 weeks but...). During restaurant week, nice (and not so nice) restaurants have a deal where you get a full meal for 2 for 52.80 or 26.40 for 1.

My first set of photos are actually of Eric cooking for us. He made sweet and spicy pork chops, curried rice and this onion salsa that has habanero pepper in it and I love it!! I could eat a whole onion that way!

The next night the three of us ate at Rioja which is the "best restaurant in Denver" according to some. All of their reservations were booked 2 weeks before restaurant week even started. We lucked out and were able to get one for 9:15 on a Monday night. Russ is so awesome! I never would have thought to call assuming they would still be booked. Glorious meal!!!

Then last night we ate at Fogo de Chao which is a Brazilian restaurant with an amazing salad bar (there is a photo of it if you click on the link). The meat is brought around to the table and it is all you can eat beef, chicken, pork, and lamb prepared different ways. We were so full and it was so good! Enjoy my photos! I will try to update this a little more often! Check out my photos on my facebook page for holiday photos (I'm adding more today) and skiing.

Eric was cutting up the habanero pepper for my salsa and did not want to waste gloves but he put the one glove on the wrong hand so he ended up cutting it with two knives. It was pretty funny to watch.
Russ squeezing the lime. According to Eric, that is his job. He always squeezes the lime.
Yummy meal Eric!

Our very tasty cheese plate appetizer
Russ's lamb
My duck was on top of a butternut squash risotto and that with the glaze from the duck was just the most wonderful taste combination. I never would have ordered this but the waiter suggested it as his favorite and I tipped him generously.
Dessert was included in the meal as well. Yum!

The waiter brought around bacon wrapped chicken and filet mignon. Eric was joking with him so that is why we are all laughing.
They are always in a hurry when they are serving the meats but they were good sports about getting their photo taken
This is what Eric refers to as "the graveyard." You get to the point where you want to taste everything but you can not possibly fit anymore food in your tummy. So good though!
