As departing day approached, we decided that we couldn't end my mom's birthday weekend in Dallas without a ceremonious visit to The Moth. With Chad's hectic work schedule, my parents had been in town two full days by this time and had seen Chad for MAYBE two hours...but like a good host, and even BETTER son-in-law, Chad wowed my parents (Lisa & Gary included) with an abundance of small plates to share. It was a great evening of food and laughter, getting my real Valley Parents together with my "Dallas Parents". :)
To end the evening's visit to the restaurant, Chad presented my mom with what was almost a fire hazard that nearly brought the whole place down! Hairs rose as we ALL attempted to put out the fire...(with little success). Thank goodness for the Chef who's not afraid to put out fires with his cooking apron! lol. What memories!~

As part of my "wifely" duties, and in order to get IN on the action (insert devilish wink here ;), I headed down to The Moth last night to capture one of the restaurants many special events. Let's just say, I WORK FOR FOOD! My job: Photograph the evening and the delicious food as it came my way. My reward: A mighty fine FIVE course meal!! ;) What a lovely proposition that was! I had a corner seat at the bar where I not only saw the action on the dining floor, but was able to see all the hub-bub in the kitchen as the staff buzzed away getting ready for Jim White and his guests for the evening. Jim White is creator and the man behind Dallas' own Savor Dallas, a yearly wine and food event that Chad and I have been lucky enough to attend (and in Chad's case, participate in). Five courses, five pairings, and a great turn out for this Dinner Club event... in one word, SUCCESS!
The first course wine prepped and waiting for the night's guests to arrive...

I couldn’t be happier for my husband, he’s worked so hard to pull this thing together and although they are still working out the kinks, they’ve had a GREAT first few months. Watch out world...Chef Chad Kelley is taking Dallas by STORM!
