And sometimes Moms need a break, and to go out and share a special meal with only people old enough to share the wine that must accompany the food.
Last night was one of those. My dining companion and I went to a couple of art openings and then went to dinner at a relatively new restaurant in town. Foregoing the foie gras and kobe steak that was selling briskly, I found a pescetarian feast. I apologize for the quality of the photos. It was a dark and stormy night. Really!
Our appetizer was pan fried oysters on a mango and summer tomato salsa. Light and lovely just as an appetizer should be.
Out palates were refreshed with a cold roasted watermelon soup. Delightful.
My entree was fresh day boat cod served over a crab crusted potato with a sauce that I think was made from saffron and olive oil. I liked the dish a lot - it felt like a treat but didn't induce great guilt.
Still. I have to head off to the gym now...
