It's All About The Beef

About eight of us went to Torro Grill one Friday night in November.  We'd heard a lot of good things about it, and finally just went.  It lived up to its reputation.  We had  beautiful meat tray drizzled with balsamic vinegar.  I had zeama.  (I miss zeama!  We haven't had -any- in the US, and chicken noodle soup just isn't the same.)  

What's special about Torro, though, is the beef.  They have the best steak preparation in Moldova outside of our parilla.  It's tender, flavorful, and cooked the way you order it.  With all that going for it, it's no wonder Buffalo Steakhouse is having problems retaining customers.  It also helps that the staff is friendly and helpful at Torro; something not found at Buffalo.

We had a wonderful meal and will be going back again once we get home.

Rounding Down

Worked through the halfway point and on the downward slope to completion.

Italian In Vienna

We were cold and had a little time to use up while by St. Stephen's Square in Vienna one late afternoon, so we ducked in to a little place just off the square.  It was Trattoria Santo Stefano, and we had a very pretty antipasto plate and a cappucino.  I thought they presented the sugar well, too.  It would have been a great place for dinner if we were there at the proper time.  Instead, we had a nice snack and got warm in pretty surroundings.

Down to the kissing and borders.  This is a quick and cute stitch!

Petit Point Earrings

There were so many very beautiful (but expensive!) things in the petit point shop in the Hofburg that I couldn't leave without buying something.  I bought these modern earrings.  I think I'll get a lot of use from them!

Back To Dreaming

I'm finally restarting on this.  It was delayed due to running out of one color and then the Christmas rotation.  Now it's back in place.
