Yep, you read that right — a dog memoir!
Similar to Molly Cool’s, the Knick’s three-course meal included an app, an entree, and a desert.
I started with the fried calamari, and it was delicious!
I loved the dipping sauce, it was orange something (?) and tasted very fresh and clean.
For my entree, it was a tough decision (all three options looked great), but I went with the mushroom ravioli.
It was incredibly good! I loved the sauce, and I’m still thinking about it
Finally, I ended my meal with the flourless chocolate cake. The other option was carrot cake, which I normally would have gotten, but that was the dessert I had Sunday, so I decided to switch it up.
And look at this!
It was by far the best flourless cake I’ve had — loved the crust!
Downtown Dining is seriously the greatest thing on earth — love getting these amazing food options!
Now onto the reason for the dinner (besides wanting to just hang out!): A Big Little Life: A Memoir of a Joyful Dog.
This is a book written by Dean Koontz about his golden retriever, Trixie. I’ve never read a Dean Koontz book, but from what I know of him, this book is very different from most of his books. This was light-hearted, funny, touching, and about a sweet dog!
I absolutely loved this book. It was easy to read, I liked the glimpse into Dean Koontz’s life, and the stories about Trixie were so funny! They were relateable as a dog parent, and I also loved how he talked about dogs’ feelings and whatnot. It really hit home, especially because I read most of the book with Milo in my lap
He looked kinda like this the whole time:
I do have two warnings though — 1. this is definitely a dog-person book. It was funny and fun to read, but if you aren’t into dogs, this isn’t for you. Second of all, get ready for tears. You will get attached to this dog! Ugly cries all around
That’s it for tonight — time to clean the house and get ready for the weekend. Have a great night!
