There were several Thomas Jefferson spottings. After all, he and I are BFFs in Cville 🙂
We returned with sweat and blisters and I recouped with an Alliebar that I had frozen from a batch this summer, thawed, took to California and back and finally ate! Yum!
It was quite swanky, and we had the whole back room to ourselves
I kicked off the weekend with a cuban Manhattan – made with POM seeds instead of cherries! It was PERFECT tonight. Sometimes I’m just in a big cocktail mood!
The highlight of the dinner for me were these Smoked Manchego Rolls – the newest Dough Ball flavor – ha! They were INCREDIBLE in texture – really chewy, and the flavor was great as well.
Feed me 10 more!
The restaurant was incredibly dark, but for dinner I had a Shrimp Stew with coconut, cashews and collard greens.
The flavors were incredible – reminded me a bit of a green curry minus the curry? – but it was a bit too rich. I couldn’t have a bite of anything without also getting a gulp of cream. But I still enjoyed it a lot – especially the shrimp!
I also tasted other dishes at the table, including a Smoked Gazpacho that I loved!
After dinner we piled into cabs to avoid a major thunderstorm and headed to Sabrina‘s condo for desserts and hot tea!
A genuine hostess – she had three different desserts for us – a Strawberry Shortcake, a Tiramisu (from Whole Foods – it was excellent) and a Blueberry Pie, plus a fruit salad.
I tasted the two, making sure I got plenty of whipped cream (my fav!) Delicious.
Sabrina is 35 weeks pregnant so there was lots of girl talk : )
We’ve been friends since the very first days of KERF when I was still a member of Calorie King. xoxo
I’m all cozy in my bed VERY excited to be turning off the light in 2 minutes! I’m solo tonight, but my roommate comes tomorrow!
