Good Food

Last night we saw Julie and Julia. We loved the movie and left the theatre feeling hungry for some really good food. We talked about our options, the places we like to go and the places we've been wanting to try. After thinking and discussing for much too long we decided on Outback Steakhouse. A safe bet, or so we thought. Jere had the Alice Springs Chicken and I had the something or other shrimp in a cream sauce. Jere loved the chicken and even shared a bit with me. I thought the shrimp was too spicy but was okay. But we agreed that it was all rather disappointing.

Tonight our friends, the Scotts, had us over for dinner. Jim is a butcher. He fixed us steaks. He bought a whole tenderloin and cut the steaks himself. He asked us how we liked them to be cooked. One medium well, three - medium rare. Oh man - melt in your mouth delicious. So amazingly good. We had salad and potatoes. It was all delicious. And then cheesecake with homemade blackberry jam on top. Now that was some really good food!!
