Hello hello everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful mid-week evening
I’m gonna have to make this quick, because American Idol is on in a hot second… but I just must tell you friends about the fabulous dinner we had tonight!
Plans with The Man’s dental work ended up changing so we decided that is was time for a nice night out so that I could enjoy a delicious meal & some drinks before the big surgery! On a side note: I also came home to a completely clean house & washed dishes, sometimes it’s the little things that just mean the world
We ended up heading back to a place that we’ve been before, just because it was so impressive last time that I just couldn’t imagine going anywhere else tonight.
To start things off I ordered two “3 oz. pours” (right Brit ) and was apparently channeling my inner Australian?!
- Chardonnay, Hope, Australia
- Cabernet/Shiraz/Merlot, Ironberry, Australia
The red was sooooo good, the Chard was good but nothing impressive. Either way, I savored every sip bc it’s going to be a while…
To share we ordered the Caprese Crostini, which was a favorite the last time around and just too good to pass up again!
Rustic baguette drizzle w/ extra virgin olive oil, sea salt & coarse black pepper served with oven roasted tomato, whole milk mozzarella, balsamic glaze & fresh basil.
Perfect, no other words come to mind
To go with we ended up sharing the Cuban Panini w/ side salad (topped w/ dried cranberries & walnuts), more than enough food for 2!
Rustic campagne bread with tender smoked pork layered with thinly shaved ham, aged provolone cheese, sweet pickles & spicy ground mustard, grilled fresh.
I’m gonna go out on a limb here friends and declare this the best sandwich I have ever had. This sandwich was ah-may-zing, I don’t even know how to describe how good it was. Okay twist my arm, here goes: this sammie could be the sole reason I will never be able to not eat meat – how’s that
Whoa blurry, guess this pic was feelin’ the wine too mwuhaha
Alright, and I’m out! I’ll see you lovelies tomorrow for the last day of ‘normal eats’ pre-surgery Friday… hope it’s a good one!
