After ordering what turned out to be a beautiful arrangement of pink lilies, roses, and snapdragon from Rick Orr's today, a friend and I had lunch at the Esquire today. I hadn't eaten there in a while and I noticed they had expanded their menu (probably for a while now) to include a salad bar, pizza, and new appetizers. Fabulous. I dig that place. Something about it screams Champaign. We would have eaten at Radio Maria, but we forgot they are closed on Mondays.
We walked across the street after lunch and picked up some chocolate treats for our recovering friend and some *delicious* gingerbread cookies from Persimmons Grocery. They were 2 for $1. Found a few other yummies there so I might have to stop back by there this week.
Then I got to hold a newborn baby.... Pretty good day overall.
