Date Night

Many years ago when our kids became old enough to no longer need a babysitter, John and I decided to take back Saturday nights. We flip who gets to design the date.

Since I've been sick the past couple of days (upper respiratory infection--yes, I'm on antibiotics, but athsma is zapping me big time) I decided to simply go out for a very nice dinner.

At work, we've discovered this absolute jewel of a restaurant called, Nazar. It's on Addison road across from the Outback. The food is Turkish.

Because I'm not familiar with Turkish food, each time I've been, I've tried something new and everything has been delicious. I do howerver know Turkish coffee--which I adore. So each time I go, the waiter knows to bring me some.

Since I've only been at lunch, tonight was a relaxing treat and we enjoyed everything from appetizers to dessert.

The restaurant gets its name from the famous Turkish good luck charm. The amulet is typically made of glass and has concentric circles. On one of our lunch visits the waiter brought us each a small nazar, which I suspended from a ribbon and made into a necklace today.

After the delicious meal, John and I are now curled up in front of the TV.

I love date night!
