Saturday Evening, April 19
As we ate our meal, Roy said, “I think I just found a new favorite restaurant.”
I ordered Quinoa Salad – mostly because I never heard of quinoa and wanted to see what it was. I learned it was the grain on top of the salad.
From the Internet: Quinoa, pronounced “keen-wah,” a protein-packed grain contains every amino acid, and is particularly rich in lysine, which promotes healthy tissue growth throughout the body. Quinoa is also a good source of iron, magnesium, vitamin E, potassium, and fiber. It looks a bit like couscous and is as versatile as rice, but quinoa has a richer, nuttier flavor than either of them.
It was delicious.
Cerwin’s filet mignon
He chose succotash made of edamame (soybeans) and corn for one of his sides.
Roy’s steak. I’m not sure what cut he ordered.
One of his sides was snow peas. When he commented on how delicious they were, I asked for permission to steal one. I think I asked – or maybe I just sole it. It was delicious.
Deb had Crab Imperial and Filet Mignon.
When looking through the pictures, I realized that I forgot to photograph my Fettuccini Alfredo with Shrimp. I don’t think I ever had so much shrimp in a fettuccini.
Any thoughts of not having dessert vanished when we saw the dessert tray.
Deb ordered crème brulee with berries.
Our waitress caramelized it at our table.
Deb allowed me to sample it. Oh, yum! The fresh berries made it one of the best I ever tasted..
I had a mango cheese cake – also delicious.
Roy had this chocolate delicacy.
Cerwin’s pecan pie became his birthday treat.
By this time the room had filled with a family who was celebrating a lady’s 75th birthday.
They kept apologizing for interrupting our quiet, but they were so much fun, and added to the celebration of our evening. As they waited for the birthday lady to arrive, they told us about her and their family, and as we asked questions they told us even more stories.
It was quite funny. After she arrived and visited everyone in the room, she kept looking at us and asking people who we were. Roy told one of her relatives to tell her that he was a long-lost cousin and was here to claim his inheritance.
When they realized that Cerwin was celebrating a birthday, one of her nieces insisted that he wear one of the party hats.
After saying goodbye to our new-found friends, I asked our waitress if I could see the upstairs where there are six bedrooms for their bed and breakfast.
She said I could photograph any room that had an open door. I was glad there was one unoccupied room.
From there we went out back to see the patio where meals are served on warm days ~ or you can just sit and enjoy the area.
I cannot believe this place is so close to our house and I never heard of it until my sister brought me here in February.
Delightful describes our evening.
Thanks Roy and Deb.
