the parental units came to visit over the weekend. inter-mixed in the tours of historic plantations, shopping, and going to movies, we ate some spectacular food.
Pasta Dinner made at home: the first night dad and i wiped up a meal of pasta, salad, and bread. secretly what i was most excited about was the frozen coconut cake for dessert. these cakes i associated with mom, and home, and i became a tad bit determined we have one for dessert.
ye olde steakhouse: When listing off options of where we could go get dinner for saturday night on the list was Ye Olde Steakhouse. dad’s face let up when i said old steakhouse where they will basically cut your steak to whatever size you want. with glowing eyes he asked “when was the last time you had steak?!” at that i knew we had to go. and i’ll admit it was damn good. i don’t eat a lot of red meat, but do enjoy a really good steak and they did it perfectly.
chicken and potatoes: on sunday we spent the whole day in asheville exploring the biltmore mansion. dinner for sunday night was yummy but also quick and easy. a roasted chicken from the grocery store, some mashed potatoes, salad, and a bottle of wine from the biltmore winery.
