:: Brad and I went on a date on Tuesday, and I had Bulgogi for the first time...delish!

:: Beginning next Tuesday, we will be starting, "English Cafe" nights at New City Wien. It will be an opportunity for University students to come and practice their English and drink some lattes.

:: Abby got some new ice skates, so we had to try them out at the Rathaus

:: and I'll leave you with another new salad recipe that we just tried out...

Pecan-Crusted Chicken salad with honey-mustard dressing

(put chicken in this mixture before adding the "crust")
