Iris, perfect dinner for the celebration
We went to Iris Saturday night to celebrate our engagement. The chef, Kelly English, just got best new chef by Food and Wine Magazine. We already had reservations, I had picked it, to celebrate our 9 year anniversary. I thought it was a little newer, but Iris opened in April of 2008. So we were a little behind in trying out this 'new' spot. Well it was wonderful and I highly recommend it! I got the 3 course dinner with wine pairings and I loved every course and every glass! The only weird thing was this spoonful of peas that we couldn't figure out how to eat, I tried it, but you know, I'm not a pea fan at all. The food was amazing, I can't wait to go back and try more!
The main reason I started this blog is to show you some insight into my life and show how normal 'girly' girls like me own the most wonderful breed on the planet. For those scared, confused, or misinformed about Pit Bulls, see that I am just like you and these two boys are my babies. If one person learns something about Pit Bulls from me, I have succeeded. I am a Bellydancing, Jazzercising, Trekking, Boot Camper that loves her fiance and her 2 Pit Bulls dearly. I am a University of Tennesee Grad (twice) and a die hard Vol Fan, no other college teams for me. I am very opinionated and want to save all the homeless dogs in Memphis and around the world...well one dog at a time. Oh and I am also in search of the best bbq in Memphis, by the way.. I am also a small business owner managing the lifestyles of the rich and famous. It's fun and it pays the bills :)
