Just tell him you bought it in the name of charity. You can never decry a charity purchase

Are you a River Cats fan?

If not, you could always donate it back for next year's auction (or sell it on eBay yourself).

So the other night we went out for a nice dinner. I have the good fortune to be able to email the chef in advance and give him some “suggestions” and he creates a stellar meal for us. My only requests were some sort of mushroom soup/bisque to start, Wienerschnitzel with potato pancakes for the main, and a seafood and a beef course in between. I wanted a soufflé for dessert and Fran wanted chocolate. So here is the magic that he worked for us.

We started off with some cocktails.





The amuse bouche was a blackened shrimp with a cilantro cream sauce, and I think that was a mango chunk.

The drink was a strawberry smoothie with bits of dehydrated strawberry for garnish.



Our first course was a mushroom bisque with mushroom crostini. I ordered a Trimbach Gewurtztraminer from Alsace to go with this and the next course.



Our next course was a lobster salad.



At this point, I had to start slowing down and let Fran finish some of this because I knew we had a lot more coming.

Kobe beef with some sort of a Hollandaise sauce and tempura asparagus, with these next courses I paired a La Crema Pinot Noir.





Wienerschnitzel with Potato Pancakes and homemade chunk applesauce.



While we waited for our dessert course to be prepared, they served us a chocolate course.



I ordered a Grand Mariner neat to finish off the evening.



To pair with, of course, my Grand Mariner Souffle. On the side they served chocolate coated popcorn. Fran was served a chocolate Souffle, but I forgot to take a picture. It wasn’t nearly as chocolately as the ones from Palo, but she still enjoyed it.



And with that we headed out of the park, not without incident. But you can read all about that in my cruise PTR!

I'm running out to the store for groceries and coming back to throw a ham in the oven, with scalloped potatoes and asparagus. No wonder I'm gaining weight.

Hmm...just wondering if we're going to do the obligatory "lose weight for Disney" thing this time round.

I'm a fan so I doubt I'll get rid of it. The River Cats have several auctions during the season. The players wear the shirt during the game and they're auctioned off as a fundraiser for a charity. After the game is over you go down on the field and get your shirt.

It was a wonderful meal! Ever since we started "making requests" I haven't gone back to eating off the menu at dinner! He does the best soufflés, well he is French.
