after a week of filling gas tanks, now it was time to go out and fill our bellies…

So after close to two weeks of being home bound, it was time for a nice evening out to dinner… nothing fancy, just a trip to our new favorite Asian-fusion resto in the area!
With a great, chilled bottle of white in tow and some large appetites to fill, we were on our way!
The menu at this resto is vast with many delicious choices, however the decision was pretty much made once we decided on venturing over there that a ‘stone hot pot’ was in our very near future…
These mini, cauldron-like bowls offer a decent sized portion of rice, scallion, shredded carrot, onions, shiitake mushrooms and a protein of your choice, all topped off with an egg [which literally from the heat of this bowl cooks in front of your very eyes]!
Slightly saucy, full of flavor and never lacking… this was just what we needed on this brisk November night…

guess who’s coming to dinner…

I’m always happy for uninvited guests, but Sandy is one guest I could do without… she has put a total wrench in our Halloween festivities and not to mention my ability to focus on meals for this weekend and into early next week. Depending on if we have power or not, I may not be posting for the next few days, but I’m going to take this as a challenge… if we lose power and need to rough it, I may need to get a bit creative with my meals.
Might just turn out to be a candlelight dinner for two after all… Stay tuned and be safe…
