August 26th: Eat at Vesta

So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since. 

Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!

Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it. 


The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.

The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.

 

April 20th: Eat an Ice Cream Cone

I am not a huge dessert person. Don’t get me wrong… I LOVE dessert. I just don’t eat it often because well, you know, weight gain and all that. 

Anyway, today was a day to just have an ice cream cone. So I headed down to this little ice cream shop in Washington Park area of Denver called Bonnie Brad Ice Cream. It has been around for 30 years. They make all the ice cream in house! It is so good!

I got my favorite… mint chocolate chip in a chocolate waffle cone. OH MY! It was so delicious. 


Some days it is just the small things we can do for ourselves that make the day and life better.
