Reno or Bust

February 13, 2010

Last weekend I traveled to Reno, NV to surprise my mom for her 60th birthday! My sisters and favorite aunt came out for the suprise and we all had a great time! We ate, drank, and celebrated for three glorious days. We took a snowy sleigh ride in the mountains of Lake Tahoe, ate chili and nachos fireside, toasted bubbly champagne and played just a few slot machines. The trip was perfect-couldn’t have been better. It was the perfect length of time for gluttonous behavior and I was more than ready to return to my cozy D.C. apartment. But the weather had other plans. I got stuck. For four extra days (hence, no recent postings)! Thanks to D.C.’s biggest snow storm in 100 years, my weekend trip became an extended stay in Reno. I got some extra time with the fam and some good eats. Here’s a little sample of some of the food I indulged in this week. Definitely going to need to hit the gym after eating all this food! Oh my!

So good to hear that the Snopocalypse had a good side as well (more time with the family is always a plus)! All of that food looks really great, especially the banana spring rolls ;)
