i have been pretty absent from CH these past months because everytime i goto the www, my computer freezes. is this happening to anyone?
anyway- had a dinner last night to die for so i had to try to write up a new post.
my good friends from CA are here for the week so last night DH & i went to john andrews
( of course ) with them last night. we started with a round of cocktails while looking at wine list and DH & i were BLOWN AWAY when we saw steven kent cab on the wine list. this is a winery in CA that we lived about 5 miles away from. we were a "member" of their wine club and just loved it. the wine was great. for apps we got 2 of THEE salad: the prosciutto-mozzerella one. god its just the best....we also got 2 half pasta dishes- i tried a pumpkin ravioli type thing with a brown butter sage sauce- YUM and our friends got the gnocchi dish im always talking about- the ricotta gnocchi with prosciutto, parm, and spinach. the loved it of course. for dinner we had: braised pork shoulder, monk fish, some special chicken, and i got the gnocchi for dinner. everyone loved it. desserts we had: home made ice cream- pumpkin, ginger, chocolate, and raspberry. a quince tart, creme brulee, and my DH had some apple action i forget the name but we all loved it.
all and all a AWESOME dinner. with tax & tip ( %15 taken off for "locals" on mon & tue ) and a round of drinks taken off: $253.
tonight my friends are going to the old inn on the green for dinner...there is a special there on wed & thu $99 a person for dinner and to spend the night. i figured if they wanted the total "country" feel, that had to do it! i will report back ( if my computer lets me! ) how they liked it....
