We shared a bottle of the 2000 Della Valle Cabernet, (Robert Parker rated 96) then moved on to Kobe Beef burgers om a Brioche Bun, truffle fries and truffle aoli, so what more could you want? And no need for desert.
Ah yes the pleasures of being well fed! Hope everyone else was similarly well fed.
We had our Valentine's Dinner on Thursday night as my wife left yesterday morning for a wedding in Sarasota. We had grilled lobster tails, small tenderloin fillets and steamed green beans with mushrooms and turkey bacon. Dessert we haven't had yet so when she gets back tomorrow evening we will enjoy dessert, a bottle of Gloria Ferrer 2005 Royal Cuvee.
Mrs Shoeman and I had a delicious meal at Good Eats On Monfort. We enjoyed small portions of the following:
(one more that I cannot remember)
and topped it off with an apple crsp dessert with Ice cream.
We also had a glass of red wine which I cannot remember either.
The memory loss may be attributed to the wine, old age, or my total focus on my wife not my meal. Probably all of the above.
Had a wonderful dinner with our two kids at the Tommy Bahama Island Grill in Newport Beach CA, and were treated to some homemade chocolate-covered strawberries by our daughter! The SoCal strawberries are in-season, and are huge and delicious this year! Anyone in SoCal should stop by Costco and pick some up! We also spent the night at the Marriott Laguna Cliffs Resort in Dana Point! See review for more details!

Melon Martini & a Mai Tai!
Totally agree - when I wrote "had it's flaws" I was attempting to be "polite". It WAS the story that made it enjoyable.
Additionally, any media that can continually remind the world of that period of time and the atrocities that occurred is worth the effort.
I am reading a nonfiction book just out called "Priscilla," written by Nicholas Shakespeare, a British writer. Priscilla was his aunt who weathered the war in France, as an English woman, and was affiliated (have to read it to find out how) with the primary man who acquired works of art for Hitler and Goring. Yes a fantastic story, but a poorly executed movie sadly.
I'm a voracious reader - about 2 books a week - everything from pulp to David McCulloch - will definitely make note of Mr. Shakespeare's book as I am very interested in the subject.
Mucho gracias amigo!
