an angel at gabriel's

We took Elise's suggestion to stop for dinner in the middle of No-where. Which is just north of "Lost," in case you were wondering. She promised an authentic "New Mexican" dining experience, attentive service, and excellent guacamole. We were not disappointed. They make the guac right at your table, and, like Elise said it would be, it was the best guacamole I've ever had. Well worth the price. My fajitas were excellent, and Somebody's ribs literally fell off the bone. Seriously, I've never seen meat so willing to give up the bone.
Go to Gabriel's. The service was the best I've ever received at a restaurant. The food was fabulous. The price was high, but absolutely worth it. Happy Thursday.

After dinner we continued our drive to Los Alamos to stay with Brent and Elise. While technically not family, we have family in common, and have spent enough time together at holidays and vacations over the last twelve years that it feels like family. Their oldest daughter, Ashley, thought our guest bedroom lacked decorations, so she brought these in and set them on the nightstand for us. Cutest. Thing. Ever.

My sleep was the best I've had in weeks--better even than the Tempur-pedic could provide. And breakfast was just to die for: cinnamon pull-aparts, eggs, bacon, strawberries, bananas, grapes, juice, and cantaloupe. Oh my yum.

And if a comfortable bed, cute decorations, and a scrumptious breakfast weren't enough, we also enjoyed great conversation and Brent gave us lots of suggestions on places we could visit. It was the perfect hotel.
