Weekend With the "Old" Girlfriends




Thirty plus years ago after our high school graduation, I reconnected girlfriends to celebrate our 50th birthdays. Every year since, we get together for a day or a weekend. The girls are here this weekend. They arrived today in time to drive to The Glitz at Irish Acres in Nonesuch, KY for a fun lunch and shopping. Irish Acres is an old schoolhouse in a rural area in the heart of horse farm country that has been turned into an amazing antique and gift shop. The Glitz Restaurant is in the basement of the building and is decorated "glitzy" as you can see in the photos above. The dessert in the bottom photo is their signature dessert, the Nonesuch Kiss. It is a meringue shell covered in hot fudge sauce and sprinkled with sliced almonds with a scoop of coffee ice cream, whipped cream and a cherry on top. Yummy!!

We had a nice lunch and a fun afternoon of shopping, then continued on into the evening with a pot luck supper of mostly finger foods where we were joined by two more high school girlfriends. I look forward to another fun day with the girls on Saturday.
