V Day

Well, another successful Valentines Day albeit with a minor disaster. We woke up to a rainy day but Neil did laundry while Connie worked, then he went for a run and did some computer stuff in the AM. After that we got ready for out dinner out at Marker 92. Unfortunately, about 15 minutes before we left we discovered a serious leak from one if our windows that soaked our carpet in the living room slide. Neil was able to cover the leaking area with a tarp and stop the flooding, so it’s just a matter of getting the carpet dried out via a fan and time. New Horizons will have to fix or reseal the window when we visit in March for some other warranty repairs.
So off to dinner we went. We were a bit disappointed by the fact that they only had a special 5 course fixe price dinner for the holiday. First off, it cost way more than we would have spent on our own and second it was way more food than we would have ordered on our own. It was really good though, but in hindsight probably wasn’t worth the price.

We had an amuse bouche of oranges and fois gras, neither of us had tried it before due to the price but both liked it and would eat it again. We are with Anthony Bourdain, tasty. Next was a leek and mushroom tart appetizer and we shared a bottle of Eden Pinot Noir. After that it was a strange salad and then entrees of lamb cassoulet for Connie and Lobster and rock shrimp risotto for Neil. Desert was chocolate mousse and raspberry Napoleon; the Napoleon was way better after the heavy meal as the mousse was really rich.
We left much poorer than expected and more stuffed than anticipated, it felt like Thanksgiving afternoon driving home.

    Wow! What a meal! Hard to pronounce but sounded wonderful even if it was too much!

      Yes, we had eaten there before and had really good lobster ravioli and seared Ahi tuna. Our first time there was for Connie’s birthday and we spent about 125 bucks including winelast night’s dinner was 75 a person and 30 for the bottle of wine. It probably wasn’t a bad price for the amount of food includedbut was way more than we needed. By the time they brought the entrees we would just have soon skipped directly to desert and we would have been plenty full. Normally we have either a salad each or a shared appetizer2 appetizers and a salad each was just too much even though the whole meal was spread over 2 hours or so.
