Dinner at the Valley Inn, in Warsaw, New York, for continuation of Sunday's birthday celebration...Well, let's just say the tiramisu alone was enough to outweigh the barf, and the bastard kids in the middle of the night, and the stove that might burn the house down. I could have eaten four. Or ten. Who knows the damage I could do if left unchecked with a pan of that tiramisu. If I'm ever on death row, I want a pan of that before they strap me down. THAT!!! is how good the food is at the Valley Inn.

Actually, I think the tiramisu is so good that if I ate it before I headed to the chair, or the shooting gallery or however it is that they off people in jails these days, THE TIRAMISU WOULD SAVE MY LIFE. I really and truly believe that.

You think I'm exaggerating.

Except I'm not.

See? It's so good I completely forgot I was doing a scorecard for today and went off on an espresso soaked ladyfinger tangent. And you should thank me, really and truly, because this post SUCKED before I got all excited about the tiramisu. I should probably go back and delete the crappy part, but I want you to know about how life gets so much better when you eat tiramisu from the Valley Inn, so I'm leaving my crappy, boring part of the post with no tiramisu references in as COLD HARD PROOFY FACTS that tiramisu will totally alter your consciousness.

Or something.

Good night.


  1. ...and the ball is in the back of the net!

    Score, indeed. Tiramisu, mmm...

  2. I could eat me some yummy Tiramisu right now at 8:45 in the morning! YUM! That's what nursing a kid 24/7 will do to you!

  3. Do they deliver to Michigan? Sounds great!

  4. Tiramisu... Hmmm, thinking of getting some for Mr. K's birthday now.

  5. Mmmmmmm, you're making me hungry.

  6. Oh, yeah, THIS is what homeschooling is meant for. Not having to decide whether to send the kid or not. If she gets it from wee man, I mean. What are the odds.

  7. Are you kidding?! This post rocked from beginning to end. I don't like tiramisu nearly as much as you - but I could easily substitute chocalate gelato or cherry pie or several raised sugar donuts or some moist chocolate chip cookies (still warm preferrably).

    Altering consciousness through desserts...I'm all about that.

  8. I want some tiramasu.

    I wonder where that came from? I never eat dessert.

  9. I have never had Tiramisu before. This is not a good thing.

    But your score/fail post IS a good thing! And also, 9 hours of straight sleep for Sweets? Yahoooooo!

  10. but have you ever tried olive juice?

  11. Gosh I miss Dayton Times! Including Students with disabilities in General Physical Education just doesn't hold a candle to you! Love you Pamela!


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
