My dad is always spoiling us when we are on vacation; taking us to fine restaurants that we cannot afford with our own measly wallets. This was a nice treat. In 2006 all the brides maids took my sister-in-law to this restaurant for her bachelorette party, so much fun talking and chatting as only girls can do. So much in fact that I couldn't seem to remember how good the food was.
The interior is dimly lit with candle chandeliers and little lamps on the tables. Booths with striped purple velvet fabric. The walls are covered in black and white photos of old time Hollywood stars.
Below is the menu that we feasted on:
Broiled Portobello Mushroom - With Humboldt Fog cheese, port wine reduction.
Dungeness Crab with Saffron Sauce
Chilled Shrimp - With cocktail sauce.
Caesar Salad - With olive tapenade crouton.
Forest Mushroom - Sauteed with Madeira.
Dessert (ooh la la)
Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee - With Demerara sugar and chocolate orange-lace cookie.
On Monday night I had a bible study with a woman that I met at a Target a few months back, her name is Martha. My brother and I teach this study together.
My brother is one of the best teachers I have ever heard. Few know how good he is. As we know, it's not him only that is good but God who is great. Our study was on the tabernacle plan and how it relates to God's plan for our lives now. God moved right into Martha's home and took over. It was so awesome! I asked her what she felt and she said "It feels warm" (as she wrapped her arms around herself and smiled). Nothing like feeling God's presence. She has been battling with certian addictions in her life; thinking that these are the only things that can give her relief from her troubles, even if the relief only last but a moment in time. I can't wait for next week to see what happens...
