Eat, Drink and Be Merry…

It’s been a weekend of culinary indulgence….

Friday, I drove 45 minutes to the coast for dinner on the water in the adjacent county. Although I prefer salmon or trout, this restaurant served only “local’ fish and so I enjoyed a whole, broiled catfish. My companion had fried oysters. I only like raw oysters (with hot sauce), but the conventional wisdom is that you don’t eat raw oysters in summer doe to the possibility of contamination by a virus.


Saturday’s dinner was at Ted Turner’s Montana Grill, which has many bison items, including bison chili and bison burgers. I had bison pot roast, which was a poor decision since the preparation made the bison taste like beef and the portion was small. I shoulda had the pecan-encrusted trout, which was very large. Next time….

tedsAfter two and a half hours laughing throughout the 80’s rock musical comedy “Rock of Ages” at the community theater,  it was a decadent dessert of dark chocolate brownie in ice cream and fudge sauce at Friday’s.  I took two and a half hours to finish it off since it was cool enough at 10:30 PM to dine al fresco.

teds2Sunday afternoon, it was a Beer Fest at Whole Foods, where we enjoyed free samples of some 30 beers. I bought some French-made organic apple cider in 750 ml “wine” bottles. I bought six bottles since that brought a 20% discount. Beer is good with sausage so I indulged in a brat.

  1. looks like Angelos which is one of my favorites. Or it could be Sprin Thing is that the mullet is so sweet along the wakulla and Taylor County coast I just can’t resist having it when I’m up there.

  2. Spring Creek is a fav of ours. But like I say the mullet in the Wakulla Taylor County waters is so good I have a hard time diversifying my pallet. I grew up on Boggy Bayou where they have the annual Mullet Festival that draws hundreds of thousands. Mullet was and is a staple there of natives.
