Welcome to My Food Blog!

Hi, it's Christine. Dinner Table Chronicles is my first blog detailing my food experiences all over town and during our family's travels. First off, I must confess that I'm a terrible photographer, so my food pics may not look so terrific. Even worse, sometimes the restaurant lighting is a bit dim and my iPhone does not take the best pics in "ambience" lighting. But I do hope to improve over time. So do bear with some of my fuzzy pics as we take you along on our food journey.

Vegas Baby! A Perfect Stay at Trump International

Mark and I decided not to give each Christmas gifts. We have everything we need, so we decided to treat ourselves to a brief (2 nights) trip to Las Vegas from Jan. 2-4. Our plan: Hop on a plane on Saturday morning and hop back home on the plane on Monday evening; stay at the Trump Las Vegas; gamble at the Wynn.

I will digress from my food blog for a moment here to share our hotel experience. For those of you who are interested, Trump Las Vegas is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. Reminds me of 5* luxury hotels in Asia. If you are interested in staying at the Trump, just be aware that it is not on the strip. It is behind the Fashion Show Mall. You can get to the strip through Nordstroms at the Mall or walk the block where you'll end up at the Wynn. My husband and I are walkers, so we didn't think twice about the walk...but for those with mobility issues, it could be a problem. Here are some pics of the hotel to share with you.

The hotel has no casino and is smoke-free. That is a plus, as the smoke in the casinos can get to you after a while. Also, without the casino, there's less of the riff raff hanging around the hotel. When you walk into the hotel, you are greeted with this fabulous floral scent that is pumped into the lobby.

We took the elevator to the 53rd floor. Our room was 5312. These double doors lead to two separate rooms or adjoining rooms, if you want:

Here's the door to our room:

Hallway entry showing a flat screen TV and lots of closet space (contained 2 luxe bathrobes):

King-sized bed, very comfy bed with nice linens and duvet:

Kitchenette with nice applicances and equipment (Le Creuset, Bosch, Wolff, Cuisinart):

The living room area. The couch is a pull-out bed:

The desk area:

The bathroom vanity:

The deep jacuzzi tub:

A nice-sized shower:

Trump is a great hotel to stay in. Service was impeccable. If there weren't so many options in Vegas, we'd stay there again.
