So we decided to try a new steak house that just opened called Mastro's Restaurant. The web site calls the restaurant an "Unparalleled Dining Experience". I'd say it was a good dinning experience, but I wouldn't rush back. Both the food and service were quite good, but be prepared to have room on your credit card because it was expensive. I will say that the crab cocktail appetizer was to die for. My husband ordered a bone in rib-eye and I had the petite filet and both pieces of meat were excellent. We ordered a side of brussel sprouts which were over cooked. For dessert we selected their signature butter cake, which I'd pass on. Overall, I think we would return to the bar for cocktails and small plate meals, but sadly not the restaurant dinning room.
In other news, it's a great time of year to visit the desert as the citrus fruit trees are bursting.

I picked a few that were on my side of the fence. They are huge, juicy, sweet, and delicious.
On Saturday, we ran a few errands and picked up an ottoman for the master bedroom closet. I originally wanted a bench seat so that I would be able to sit down and put on a pair of shoes, but the closet is a bit too narrow. So I opted for the Threshold Single Storage Ottoman Stool with Hinged Top in Espresso, purchased at Target. It works just great. I was tired of sitting on the floor to put on my shoes ;-)

We also purchased a desk chair for the desk in the master bedroom. The desk came from Cost Plus World Market and is the Konrad Mahogany desk. The chair came from Lamps Plus and my husband removed the arms so the chair would slide under the desk. The master bedroom is a very bright and warm room so I will enjoy sitting at this desk to work.

Of course the original plan for the weekend, besides cooking a ham, was for my husband to work on the desk in the man cave (office). However, he could not find the plans that he drew up. So we did our errands and shopping. As we were packing up to leave, my husband discovers the plans under his back pack. Oh, well, we will probably go out this weekend as well and he can work on getting the office back together.
