Happy Father's Day Buffet.

It seems like there is either nothing to do or everything do at once here in Colorado.  This weekend was no exception.  We went to Denver Comic Con last year but this year it fell while we are getting our deck refinished finally (hallelujah!), our 6th wedding anniversary and Father's Day.  I wanted to do something a little different for this anniversary since we usually go out to eat.  So this time I made plans, kept a secret and Raul didn't know what we were doing until we arrived at our destination.  The surprise was taking a date night cooking class at Sur La Table!  It was awesome and neither of us have done that before.  We made scallops with prosciutto, pan seared pork tenderloin over roasted cauliflower and a chocolate gelato with balsamic strawberries on top.  So much fun and now I'm not as scared of non-stick pans as I was before.

Sunday it was all about Father's Day so we met up with Raul's mom and my parents over at Fresh Fish Company for their buffet.  I think the last time we went to the buffet there was before we were married so we couldn't wait to have it again.  I can never gauge buffets right, I go in light, feel like I'm not eating much and then I pile on the food.  All of a sudden I am at the point of no return and just want to sit there while all of the different foods settle before we leave.  Of course Raul wasn't fazed at all and Addy was just mesmerized by the fish.

I hope you had a Happy Father's Day too.
