Friday afternoon started with dinner at California Pizza Kitchen and seeing Hidden Figures. Both my mom and I wanted to see it, but hadn't due to circumstances. What a great way to see it together. I loved the movie, and it is the only one of this year's Oscar crop that I've seen. I'm not big into seeing nominated movies unless I want to see them. I grew up with a space age nerd (my dad), but like most people, had never heard about the women behind the science and math.
Saturday was breakfast at Snooze. If anyone is in the Denver/Boulder area, Snooze is a great breakfast place that is so popular, if you don't go at opening time, 7am, there will be a wait. They have great food, and creations you would never think of. I got a pancake flight with a sweet potato pancake, a pineapple upside pancake, and molten chocolate pancake. Delish! My mom got the spiced gingerbread French toast. Then we got pedicures, had lunch with my aunt and cousin's fiancee, and then we took a cooking class at Sur la Table.
It was considered date night, but we didn't care. The menu was creamy goat cheese fondue, winter green salad with candied bacon and blue cheese, classic Coq a Vin, and dark chocolate soufflé with vanilla bean whipped cream. Everything was good, but I loved the soufflé and goat cheese fondue. The fondue was the appetizer when we started eating what we made, and I said I needed to be cut off. I wanted to save room, especially for the soufflé. I figured licking the bowl would be rude, and I pretty much finished off the chocolate. I started the day with chocolate and ended the day with chocolate.
