The Heirloom Tomato Amuse-BoucheWe're going out for a romantic dinner tonight. It's kind of a belated Valentine's Day dinner. :-)
The restaurant is supposed to be excellent. They mainly use organic, locally grown and raised ingredients. If it's not in season, they don't serve it. Healthy and delicious?! Bam!
I've already looked over the menu (online) and spied a few LC-friendly menu options I'll likely choose from. But, you never know. I may get all crazy-like and choose something completely different once we get there. :-P
I'll report back and hopefully have pictures to post as well.
Update: The dinner was wonderful. The company was the best, of course. The food was delicious (perfectly cooked steak and scallops) and served quickly - just the way we like it.
+ The Wowee Zowee Meal Replacement Shake - 3 oz of organic heavy cream, 3 oz of purified water, 2 scoops of natural vanilla whey protein powder, 2 tbs of organic flax meal, 1 scoop of Amazing Grass Chocolate Green SuperFood, a pinch of pure stevia, and 1/4 tsp of Also Salt)
+ 3 thin fillets of petrale sole topped with Italian herbs and sauteed in a mixture of organic butter and organic olive oil. I then covered the fish in a reduced sauce made of white wine, lemon juice, organic butter, "pan bits" (the bits left behind after cooking the fish in the pan) and a little sea salt.
+ 1/2 cup of mashed cauliflower
+ a cup of instant coffee with a few ounces of organic heavy cream and a pinch of pure stevia
6:15 pm (pictured above *)
+ 1 slice of an heirloom tomato with a little basil and vinaigrette
+ 1 grilled scallop (a gift from my wife's plate)
+ a 14 oz rib eye steak topped with blue cheese butter and a clove of roasted garlic
+ Brussels sprouts with bacon
* Note: I didn't touch the French Fries on the plate. :-)
More to come ... I hope!
