well other than finally there is some actual white in this house along with some colour.........I mean builder's beige does get old fast believe me; is that when I decorate I have Stingray Music on the TV and listen to the oldies station. It's good to catch up with all the great tunes and hear ones you haven't heard in a while like this one:
Dinner on Friday night was good. I didn't take any photos, but I will describe what we had. We started with a platter of assorted starters, basically samples of various things, which included pickerel in a tempura batter, antipasto, chicken and pork kebab, and a giant shrimp with seafood sauce. That was okay, not the best but not the worst.
For our main, I had sesame seed crusted salmon, with jasmine rice, various steamed veggies and a "salad" of mini sprouts. It was all perfect, right down to the steamed veggies, 10 out of 10. Dh had bacon wrapped pork tenderloin, with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies. Again dh said it was really good. For dessert, dh had Lindt Chocolate cheesecake and I had the Bailey's Irish Cream creme brulee, that was 100 out of 10, I could have just eaten that all night. Gosh it was good. Dh had a couple glasses of wine, while I had water with my meal.........I am a cheap date!!1
A bit of a sad note. There was a funeral party there and the deceased was a young man in his 30's. They were all on the patio drinking and then came into the restaurant to have their meal just as we were going. Always sad when it's a younger person who has died.
This is the third year in a row we have been to the same restaurant for our wedding anniversary, we both decided next year we need to try something different!!
Do you dine out in a fancy restaurant's for special occasions?
