Mostly food and Vampire Diaries

Tonight Shannon and I went to dinner at Angeline's (a cozy New Orleans-style restaurant in downtown Berkeley), which is where we've gone for Valentine's Day a few times before (e.g., in 2009). We shared an order of their excellent salty/sweet/spicy hush puppies w/honey butter (this appetizer is one of my favorite foods on the planet, and I'd been looking forward to it all week since we made our dinner reservation), then Shannon ordered his usual shrimp po'boy (he says many things on the menu look good, but he knows he loves the po'boy so much that it's hard to pass it up), whereas I ordered one of the specials: blackened sole w/horseradish mashed potatoes and delicious steamed green beans w/parmesan. Usually in the past I have ordered their "Voo Doo Shrimp" (in a spicy bbq sauce), but today I thought I'd try something different. The "blackened sole" tasted mostly like "blackened" and less like "sole," and it wasn't very spicy (which is probably a good thing, since I'm a spice wimp), but I enjoyed it a lot. I'm always excited to get to try something new.
