Foodie Friday

Hello Dear Ones and welcome again to Foodie Friday hosted by our Diva of Everything Gollum at Designs by Gollum. Please go over to visit her and you'll see lots more lovelies playing with their food! It's the most fun and you'll snag a few recipes to boot!

Now you know I've just returned from a blogging break to see our Darling Daughter and son-in-law who live in the Seattle, Washington area. Well, a trip to Washington isn't complete unless you go to the Space Needle Restaurant. I know, it's all about the food! ;)

Are you afraid of heights, Dear One? Then you'd better not risk it! lol

Oh, my goodness! My little group is very hungry and they are just about to get out of hand!

Oh, so much better! Everyone is so calm and smiling now because we're about to order delicious food. Now I must tell you, you know the feeling, I didn't chop, rinse, flour, sauce or even turn on an oven - what a happy feeling! This restaurant rotates 360' about every 45 minutes or so. You can see the beautiful views behind us. Oh, the atmosphere!
We started off with great little hard rolls and this most delicious hazelnut oil for dipping! Wish I had some now. I forgot to take a picture of my little roll - I ate it just a bit too fast! :)
We all ordered this tasty salad - it's pretty too, isn't it? Herbal greens, apples, Oregon creamery blue cheese and huckleberry vinaigrette.
Next on to the entrees' - I had a petite Kobe Top Sirloin drizzeled with a wine sauce, a mixture of potatoes and crispy asparagus.
Mr. Precious, always thinking of his pasta for running, had a lovely mixed seafood pasta.
Son-in-law's Crusted Tuna sitting in a strawberry sauce and mashed potatoes with a little kick to them! :)
Darling Daughter's Cedar Wrapperd Salmon with potato cakes.

Needless to say, the dinner was excellent and we enjoyed the gorgeous views and time with our children.

Now on to the desserts!
Dear Daughter and hubs shared a creme brulee.
They licked the bowl and even finger licked the crumbs! :)
Now I had a divine cheesecake with mixed berries on the side. I love my cheesecake and did not, I say, DID NOT WANT TO SHARE WITH MR. PRECIOUS! But being the wonderful one that I am, I did! But I didn't let him have very much! ;)
See? Just look at this plop of delectable tastiness - do you blame me?
I really did want to pick the plate up and just lick off the rest of the sauce, but you know what a lady I am and would never do that in public. :)

Well, Foodie Friday is all about the food - homemade or not - that's what Dear Gollum says. So I hope you enjoyed feasting your most gorgeous little peepers on our dinner.

Just a tiny plug for the camera on my iphone - it's great! I took all the pictures with my phone because my battery died on my camera! Pretty good shots, huh?

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Sitting On Top Of The World

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song.

Glory, hallelujah, I just phoned the parson,
"Hey, Par, get ready to call!"
Just like humpty dumpty,
I'm ready to fall.

I'm sitting on top of the world,
Just rolling along, just rolling along.
I'm quitting the blues of the world,
Just singing a song, just singing a song
~sung by Dean Martin
