Turkey and stuffing, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts and a big slice of pumpkin pie covered in whipped cream to finish. at least that's what I have planned.
Saturday evening we went to Boo's Bistro Wine Bar for our anniversary dinner. It's a small place that I've had on my list of places to try. Thankfully I made a reservation, the place was packed. Not an empty seat in the house. Not a quiet place but the food was excellent and although busy there was no feeling of being rushed.
Paul had the specials, fresh thick tomato slices with Stilton cheese followed by a Thai dish of scallops and shrimps served over rice. The portions were generous and he said the spicing was just right.
I had the crab cakes served on a bed of tangy mayonnaise and then the tenderloin with Gorgonzola cheese. All crab in the cakes, no filler, and the steak was cooked to perfection, medium rare.
I was full but Paul made the mistake of asking about desserts and when he ordered the hot apple crisp with ice cream I found myself asking for the chocolate pate. Oh my ! A solid piece of melt in your mouth truffle smooth chocolate sitting in a dollop of raspberry sauce.
Last night we had BBQ loin steak with garlic shrimp and started the pumpkin pie.
Tonight is the turkey.
Tomorrow I think I might have to start dieting. Not getting to the gym is starting to show right around my middle and now that my chest is smaller my tummy seems more noticeable.
