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….
After 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.
Sunday 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.
