Wednesdays have always been pretty much my favorite day of the week. Every Wednesday isn't the greatest, but for the most part, they are smooth sailing and they signal the gentle downward slope of the work week as we know it. Today was awesome because I was able to spend some of it with Leon's Diva Grandmama (aka my mom) and we had a wonderful lunch together. I have never been a huge proponent of the popular chain restaurant TGI Friday's. I'm so glad we branched out and tried it today though, because I may have had the greatest salad of my life. Topped with mandarin oranges, blue cheese crumbles, dried cranberries and pecan-crusted chicken, the salad was tossed in balsamic dressing. It was heavenly. Of course eating it across the table from my lovely ma didn't hurt either. What a wonderful treatie and a good way to spend a Wednesday too.
