Did you say it was mom and dad’s anniversary today. Yes, Shoks. They’ve been married like way too long. Well, I’ve only been here for 8 years Kali and they were married then. Were they married when you came here? Oh yes, they’ve been married for 45 years. Cwap, that long!! That’s like 3 lifetimes for us cats. So where did they go for dinner. Mom made reservations at The Twisted Cork. Let me guess. There are corks all over the floor and the servers have twisted personalities. MOL MOL They’re home! Tell us mom what did you have for your special dinner? OK girls, listen to this. I had a Caesar Salad tossed with bacon and parmesan cheese. You must have had more than a salad. Then I indulged in pan seared Pacific scallops in a saffron cream and topped with red caviar. Caviar…fish eggs….what were they like? Very tiny Shoko and not much flavor. What’s the black stuff under the scallops? I’m ashamed to say I don’t know but it was delicious. It wasn’t chocolate but what a delicate flavour.
What did dad have? Dad eats meat like we do…..none of this salad bit for him. Dad had a New York Steak, thick cut with a house dry rub and six large prawns on top of the steak. The potato was coated with seasoned bread crumbs and baked. He also had a vegetable ragout with red peppers, zucchini and broccoli. That steak makes my mouth water. You can keep the veggies.
So the dinner was a success? Not everything. We each had sparkling water and it tasted…bad! It tasted like someone threw baking soda into the water. Yuck.
How about us mom, we’re getting hungry. You got any Fancy Feast for us gals? Sure enough….Make room for the beef girls. .
