Bon Appetit

Last night Todd and I had an Anniversary date night.
We drove out to Elk Grove Village and went to our favorite restaurant; Tapalpa.

Tapalpa Restaurant was established in 1992 by Judi and Abraham Aguilar. It's named after the town of Tapalpa Jalisco. Located in the Sierra Mountains, an hour and a half ride from Guadalajara. One of the most beautiful towns in Mexico. The restaurant is the BEST Mexican food I have ever eaten and their Margarita's are to die for. After you have your meal they give you a shot of a liqueur that is like a dessert. I asked what it was and they told me its a mixture of Butterscotch Schnapps and Irish Cream with whipped cream on top. OMG you don't need dessert when you have that.
After dinner we stopped home so I could drop off my left overs (lunch today!) and went to go see Julie & Julia.

Part of the Plot courtesy of IMBD the rest mine: The movie follows Julia and Paul Child through Julia Child's memoir, MY LIFE IN FRANCE, which she wrote with her grand nephew Alex Prude. It parallels the life of Julie Powell and her struggle to find herself. In this adventure Julie Powell learns that her life and Julia Child's life has many similarities.
It is utterly amazing how much Meryl Streep turned into Julia Child. She is an amazing actress.
This was a great Anniversary date. Good food, good entertainment.
Bon Appetit.
