Melissa and Brendan
Melissa's Birthday Party with Brian, Me, Paige, and Carl
Jeremy, co-owner with his wife Holly the most excellent chef
Brian, Paige, Carl, and Brendan got the Polenta Fries with Balsamic-Tomato "Ketchup"
Melissa and I had the Grilled Peaches
Heirloom Tomatoes that Carl, Brian, Brendan, and I enjoyed
Salad with Blueberries for Paige and Melissa
Brian and Carl ordered the Chicken Caprese
Brendan had the Turkey Meatloaf
Paige, Melissa, and I had the Shrimp & Grits
You might notice that we didn't have flowers and candles on our table like the others did. Because the shrimp and grits were so absolutely incredible and they were really busy, I decided not to make a big deal of it here on the blog. I'm sure they are grateful even though presentation is important. I watch Top Chef and Top Chef Masters and have learned what to look for! Close call this time! :-) (they read this)
We all had such a good time. Carl is Brian's godfather (our cousin Sally is his godmother), and we've been friends with Paige and Carl for almost 40 years. I love them! Brendan was so good and such a fun dinner companion. He likes to try all kinds of food and isn't a picky eater but a discriminating one.
