“Sleepless in Seattle,” meet Sick in Spokane -or-Photography First, Misery Follows

New restaurant last night in a phenomenal setting. Went to the Steam Plant in Spokane with The Boyfriend’s family.

Nutshell- it was great, but to me, even better than the food was the interior and the photo opportunities it provided.

Got back to hotel. Went downhill. Fast. Probably food poisoning, is my best guess. NOT from the Steam Plant. Twelve hours later, I think I can be a human being again instead of a wretched being

No details of the great food and even better company, I’ll just share the photos and the good news that I feel good enough to pound this out. Spokane wasn’t very nice to me on my first visit, but I won’t take it personally.

**UPDATE **  I did want to share a few observations on the food at The Steam Plant. Three of us had the steaks (from a nearby farm, I was told) and they were all a nice size (read: not huge), with a mixed fresh, sautéed vegetable and mashed potatoes. All of it was very nice. I didn’t care for the smokiness of the mushroom sauce on my steak in that it was too… smoky. If you like smokey flavors, smoked cheese or the like, then I’d recommend it since it really was a well flavored pan sauce. I think the winner may have been the buffalo meatloaf that The husband had! wow! That was delicious! It had house made ketchuppy type of sauce on top with a bit of a spicy kick to it, and was really tasty.

Everyone liked their craft beers, too, and I only downed half my stout so I can’t blame my stomach ills on too much drink… despite the fact that the mom of The Boyfriend and I are ready to drink at the thought of our oldest so going off to college together.

Exploring the depths of the old plant…

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!
