Spice is Nice!


Last night Michael and I had a lovely date night. First we went to The Helmand in Mt. Vernon for dinner, it was AMAZING. If you live in the B-More area and have not been it's worth a night out...not too expensive either, and really interesting. We followed that with a movie at the Charles but we were an hour early so we went next door to Tapas and had a drink. Our friend Jen was bar tending so we got to catch up with her. Then we went to our movie, Slumdog Millionare, which was awesome. I really love the Charles...it always reminds me of when people got dressed up to go to the movies. Plus you can get your drinks in plastic cups to take into the theatre. Nothing like watching a great movie while sipping a glass of wine or in my case last night, a gin and tonic! The crowd is different too. Since it's more art house you don't have (at least not as many) rude people yelling at the screen, talking loudly or texting through the whole film....just put it down people! All in all it was a great Baltimore evening. So this morning I bought a few spice kits from purpose design inspired by our dinner and movie night. They are having a great sale! It's my valentine gift for the both of us. It's nights like last night that make me remember why I love this city, if only it wasn't so cold.

I love spices too, what a fun evening that sounded, I wish I lived closer to a larger city. The plates you posted below are beautiful, lovel the subtle coloring of the glaze.
