Sorry for the late post – I just got home!
Crisp was fabulous, as usual! I have an ongoing conversation with the chef about his soups – they are simply marvelous. The only drawback – heavy cream is one of the top ingredients, which is probably exactly why they taste so darn good!! After a little discussion, I found out he uses 3 quarts of cream for every 4 gallons of water, and by my math that’s about a 1:5 ratio, which isn’t bad for a cup of soup.
This was the second time I had the prosciutto split pea soup and it didn’t let me down. His beet soup was amazing last time, and my friend got the carrot-ginger today – OH my gosh was it perfectly delicious. I didn’t want a whole bowl so I just asked for a “on the side” dressing container full – and sure enough, he brought a whole bowl! I ate about 3/4 of it and every bite was scrumptious…
I also got a salad, tossed in 1 tsp of homemade honey mustard (they take you seriously here when you say “only a little dressing”), with carrots, cucs, mushrooms, red peppers, spinach and raisins. It was topped with a small piece of grilled sole with a little piece of toast on the side. I ate every bite – yum!
I’m guessing lunch was around 550 kcal.
And I had a blast with my friend Susan!!! She’s so much fun to be around (hi Susan!) and we could talk for hours and hours 🙂
I’m sure you all are as aware as I am that there are LOTS of new (good!) questions and I’m having trouble keeping up. I’m wrapping my brain around more efficient ways to organize them so we don’t have so much repetition. I liked one readers suggestion for an improved FAQ page, but I feel like they would need to be grouped by topic and then new questions would be lost in the mix. I could also do “answer>s to your questions” posts and have a questions category so you could browse all at once AND use the search box at the top right, but I wonder how many people would bother to do that before asking a question? Plus, many of them pertain to the post they’re asked with, so I hate to separate them.
I do have one request – if your question might easily be answer>ed by a quick Google Search or a visit to Wikipedia, please do so! If you’re still in the dark, feel free to ask away 🙂
Any bright ideas?
Thanks to everyone for all of your enthusiam!
