We went out to lunch today without wearing coats! We went to our favorite place…Hearth Kitchen.
It was fun but Den and I are both stuffed! We started with a chunky yummy crabby dip served hot hot hot in its own little pot. We had it with yummy house made chips…the chips were too dangerously addictive and so we ate them all up! I barely ate the crab because I was so into these chips.
After the crab and chips we were going to split a salad but Den refuses to even eat a smidgeon of meat during Lent. Our fave salad has a teeny tiny bit of meat in it but again…Den refused. So next we were going to split a grilled cheese sandwich…this one was filled with grilled Kennett Square mushrooms and pesto…but Den decided he wanted his own. So I ordered grilled eggplant with roasted tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese on flatbread. I was full after the crab/chips so my plan was to take this puppy home. So…the sandwiches come and mine is massive and the plate is filled with the yummiest frites ever! Den and I just look at each other! And we both are in denial about the frites but we start to eat them anyway! And…we kind of ate them all up! I think we might have been ok except for the looming presence of the Lemon Tart. Yep…the Lemon Tart from Hearth Kitchen is just about the best dessert ever created.
And so we oder the Tart…their Lemon Tart With Almond Graham Cracker Crust… knowing I would be happy with one bite and Den would eat the rest…and he did!
Now Den is moaning and groaning and asking me why we don’t have antacids! But we really did have a fun lunch!
I am almost done with this and it remains delightful. It makes me yearn for a nice long summer in Maine!
I also started this one…a delightful MG book.
I am so interested in these two new ones. I don’t have them yet but I will keep fingers as well as toes crossed! The covers alone make me want them.
My sweet Lucy Grace went for fluids today. I swear Roxie waits for her and comforts her when she returns. Lucy’s fur is unkempt and she is exhausted from her trip but Roxie watches over her. Fluids will help but not for forever. We try to prepare ourselves but…
I am out of here until Monday!
