We went to our favorite place to eat on special occasions. With the kids at my parents for the night and the weather in our favor - we headed out to the Boathouse in Horseshoe Bay (Suzanne, I promise to take you there next time!). What a perfect night it was. Our friends Kevan and Kelly joined us for a drink, and while they would have loved to stay - they had other plans but promised another night for sure.
Chris and I shared the mussels as the appetizer. MMMm, maybe the best I have ever had. Smoked with some apple cedar, they were cooked to perfection. My main was the same halibut I had last year. I had been dreaming of it for a year. Worth the wait. Chris had the salmon / halibut combo and he loved it too.
While dessert was not needed, it sure was good!! Chris had the apple / cranberry crisp and I had the molten chocolate brownie. While he swore his was better, I know that chocolate ALWAYS trumps other desserts.
When we got home we sat out on the deck and enjoyed the peacefulness of it all. And the next morning, no kids to wake us. Nice.
