Sunday Roast, July 15 – absolutely delicious spicy Hawaiian Chicken Burgers with a fresh cucumber, tomato, feta salad on the side – dessert: My Heart’s yummy gluten-free “Bakewell” tart creation – this was a really great meal !!
Fish Monday, July 16 – The fish was a success… the rice not so much – Steamed Tilapia with Ginger & Scallions was lovely, light, and flavorful – I almost followed the recipe exactly. Not sure there was a need for so much peanut oil – will probably use less next time but will definitely make again. I am trying some new rice mixtures but I should NOT try them with a new main dish too… too often they don’t cook quite as directed… first crunchy and then cooked a little longer.. gooey. Not fantastic but I’ll definitely try it again, preferably when I am not distracted trying to make other new recipes. Pineapple left from Sunday Roast so grilled those up for an additional side.
I absolutely love their creme brulee – there is a “mound” of chocolate ganache on the bottom that is just a wonderful “surprise”.
Our friends had the other dessert… we totally can’t remember what it was but it was just too pretty not to take a picture of!
My Heart had the pecan pie tart – WOW!
Wednesday, July 18 – my Heart was in DC for meetings so I went to dinner with the kids – the local Chinese Buffet: Hibachi Grill & Supreme Buffet – the food is pretty good, sushi selection is nice and they have a teppan yaki station with lots of choices so it can also be Almost healthy (for All You Can Eat) !
Saturday, July 21 – Boordy Vineyards for one of our favorite bands: Mood Swings – It was a little damp but that didn’t stop us from having fun – nothing like wine, music, nibbles & friends (That is my Heart, in the yellow shirt, dancing with one of our friends)
