Dinner out

We are on vacation this week. Not going anywhere; more like relaxing, eating well and well....relaxing. I had been hearing good things about a restaurant in a local hotel for a while and it seemed a good time to try it.

Arriving at about 5 o'clock we were the first ones there. I was immediately pleased to see the wine list and recognize the brands. We have long been fans of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay; so we ordered a bottle.

I had no problem finding several entrees that looked good and settled on French Chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Husband ordered one of the specials which consisted of pork with hoisin sauce over rice and a separate serving of beef with mushrooms. This is the second time in recent weeks I have seen two small separate servings as one entree and I love the concept.

The portions weren't huge; which made dessert an option. We split a slice of Snickers pie. Exactly what it sounds like and delicious.

It was a nice atmosphere; especially as it never got terribly busy while we were there. Nice evening.
