Friday - Out to dinner at Mother's and Sample

After a brief break, it's date night. T is thrilled that his babysitter came and they got to make mini pizzas (on Naan bread, a great revelation that we will re-visit ourselves next week) and bake cookies. M and I tried a place down in Allentown, Mother's. Even though it was a tad chilly we decided to make use of their lovely patio while it's still possible. The ambiance was perfect. The food was generally good, but not great. My salad was overdressed, M's duck was too sweet,and my pasta was too rich and salty. However, the flavors were generally good, the service was excellent, and they make good cocktails. We went to Sample for dessert. We haven't been there since right after we moved here and we were again impressed. The desserts were inventive and good, the decor excellent, and the service excellent. We should go back for a full meal soon!
