As previously announced, Pualani, Smitty, MHS and I dined at the Lady and Sons' restaurant tonight.
Our server was Mike. Mike was great. I wish I would have taken a picture of Mike. I didn't. Maybe someday I will become one of those bloggers whose camera is ever-ready to snap that perfect picture that says a thousand words.
But I did take this picture: (OK, Pualani actually snapped the photo)
This is the greatest thing ever invented. It's the hand drier in the ladies room. That sucker really blows! It literally moved the skin on my hands. Now I know that I'm aging but the skin on my hands is not that loose. (Look at that picture! My hands are normally lovely and young looking.)But this thing made the flesh of my hands flap in the breeze. I was so impressed, I remembered to take my camera (and Pualani to take the picture) on my second trip to the restroom. (See this post for reference to my weak bladder)
I forgot to take pictures of our appetizers. We had friend green tomatoes and crab stuffed Portobello mushrooms. But here's what we had for dinner:
My brother took the advice of Pseudonymous High School Teacher and ordered the chicken pot pie. I took several bites (coz I'm his baby sister and he can't refuse me anything) and this was REALLY good. Like no pot pie I've ever had. Thanks for the recommendation, Pseudo!Pualani had the stuffed shrimp. I sampled this one too and Yummmm! The shrimp was stuffed with crab and then wrapped in bacon and smothered in something sinful. Mmm, Mmm Good.
This was my plate. It may not look so pretty, black beans seldom do but it was delectable. I love crab cakes and these ranked up there with the best I've ever had. They were served with a creamy dill sauce and a side of black beans over white rice with pico de gallo. Yum again!
MHS ordered one of the specials. As you can see, he couldn't wait for me to take my pictures before diggin' in. He had a New York strip steak smothered in carmelized onions with a tasty merlot sauce, steak fries and asparagus wrapped in bacon. I tried to have a taste but he stabbed my hand with his fork. Ouch!
See that room over Pualani's shoulder? I had one of those Midlife Slices moments *wink* (Luv ya, Janie) and even after being told that it was a mirror continued to think there were people in that "back room."
