As part of our B&B package from Abacot Hall we had a $100 gift certificate to The Old Winery Restaurant. We started with a couple of great cocktails. I had a Lychee Berry Martini that was fabulous. Recently I made two martinis: Pomegranate Martini and Pomegranate Sparkling Martini – both were delicious. Greg had a Vodka Creamsicle that I still need to figure out how to make. The dinner started with a wonderful, homemade bread with oil and vinegar for dipping. For our appetizer we had crab cakes as we tend to try them when we are on vacation in our quest to find the best crab cakes. The crab cakes were light with a nice sauce; but not the best. The crab cakes we had at Berry’s Family Restaurant in Ohio are still the best! I had made a healthy version last year – click here for the recipe. But Berry’s Family Restaurant has the best! For dinner I had the Roast of the Day which was excellent. I still need to figure out how to make a smoked bacon sun-dried tomato cream sauce. Greg had Filet Mignon, which he really enjoyed. I treated myself to one of my favorite desserts – Lindt Milk Chocolate Creme Brulee. I will not be making this dessert because I enjoyed it far too much! And poor Greg was trying to enjoy his cocktail and I kept telling him to stop so I could take a picture! Because as you know everything is about the blog!
