So. I'm changing my days off this week and heading to Fort Worth on Tuesday to see the Ansel Adams: Eloquent Light exhibit before it closes on Nov. 7. Will also catch the Masterworks of American Photography while I'm there.
I've been an Ansel Adams fan since a college photography class. Didn't know much about Margaret Bourke-White until the Candance Bergin film, but am interested in seeing her work, too.
Hopefully, my friend Lisa Baker, who now lives in Weatherford, is going to join me for the adventure.
After the exhibit, we're going to have lunch at Tim Love's Lonesome Dove restaurant. Have been wanting to eat there for a long time. Had my mind set on a steak. A rare, thick, juicy steak. Since "the finding" in January, I've been doing what the doctor recommends, avoiding red meat. For a carnivore like me, it's been a real struggle. But, considering the alternative, fish and chicken have become my friends.
All restaurants seem to have a website these days and Lonesome Dove is no exception. Even though my mind is set on a steak, I clicked onto the lunch menu.
Now, I'm confused. I'm still thinking steak, but I may have to add the duck spring rolls. And the blue corn lobster hushpuppies.

Blood Orange Sazerac -Sazerac Rye Whiskey and Solerno Blood Orange Liqueur shaken with orange bitters served “on the rocks” in a Pernod Absinthe rinsed glass.

Cucumber Blueberry Gin Rickey - Hendrick’s Gin and St. Germaine Liqueur muddled with blueberries, cucumbers, fresh lime juice and simple syrup then topped with club soda.
L.D. Tea - Firefly Sweet Tea Bourbon served in a tall glass with a splash of Stirrings Peach Liqueur and water.
Frozen Shot of Tuaca - A true Tim Love tradition!
I'm liking the sound of the Strawberry Rhubarb Mojito.So, it's a Mojito, some duck spring rolls, lobster hushpuppies and a steak.
Then, I clicked on the dessert menu. Egads and little fishes. Please don't tell Dr. Droeder how I'm sabotaging his cancer-prevention regimen! The red velvet roulade with mascarpone cream is looking mighty tempting.

Looks like I've got a lot of thinking to do between now and Tuesday at 1 p.m. If Lisa joins me, it'll simplfy things. We can share. But what if she can't make it?
Anyone eaten there? Got suggestions?
