A Special Day

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 catsSo 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                                                       aaashokocroppedThey’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.                                                               1a1a1aWhat’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.                                                                       adone1.

SHOKO…..BLACK
KALI…..ORANGE
MOM…..PALE GREEN

May you never suffer from insomnia my furry friends.                                                                                    sistersinarmsfall

        That black stuff under your Scallops was probably Balsamic vinegar…used to do (make) the same dish! glad you enjoyed your anniversary! Hugs from T & Buggz the Shz-itzu !

    Happy Anniversary!!! It was the best idea to visit this restaurant… the food looks great… do you think it is possible to make this tasty fish at home too?… sorry about the water, it happens that it has a weird taste.. I bought one too what I can’t drink. the name was holy spring… it was more howly than holy…

      You mean the scallops? Scallops are wonderful and easy to cook at home. They hardly take any cooking at all. Maybe 5 minutes but they cost plenty. This is why I was only given 5 scallops. Perhaps if one could get them from a fisherman they wouldn’t be so costly. The scallops and Caesar salad filled me but Bill would want more meat so he didn’t get any…hehe I have never tasted water so bad. Our tap water would’ve been better. The expression on our faces after a sip must have been hilarious. That’s the time the server should have come by and said, “How is everything.?” hehe It was an experience.

    Oh my! Looks like a beautiful dinner to celebrate your anniversary – HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO TWO SPECIAL PEOPLE! Too bad about the water though -you’d think that was a SAFE thing to order!

    Love, Pam

      Thank you Pam. You and David have been married about as long as us and it is a long time but only when one stops and thinks about it. I’ll think twice about ordering sparkling water again. It sure didn’t make us sparkle after a drink.

      Thank you my Canadian friends. How’s the weather back there? It is cold as as can be here. We have been spoiled with -1C and now it’s -28C during the day. No time to adjust to cooler weather.

      It was a fun time. I ‘m usually stuffed and uncomfortable when I leave a restaurant but I had just the right amount. I must order two appetizers in the future cause I was still ready to paint the town. Unfortunately it was very cold and unpleasant, hardly anyone was out so we went home and had a game of scrabble.

      Thank you very much. What a ride we’ve had during that 45 years. You know I think the hard times brought us closer. Besides I have somebody here that still remembers the same things I do. Like our first washing machine…a wringer washer. Looking back is fun. Doing my washing in the driveway…not so much. hehe

      That steak sure looked delish! Of course someone would have to make pate out of it…that’s where mom’s experience comes in handy. MOL

        I love beef FF but Kali can’t hack it for long so mom changes to the other FF pates. I don’t like the expensive wet cat food so mom is not trying it on us so much. I’ll have a bowl of beef and holler, “To my cuz Dharth….a beef lover of a mancat.”

    Happy anniversary! I’ll have some of Bill’s steak, please, but he can keep the prawns. Oh yeah, I stick to tap water in town and plain bottled away from home. I don’t understand the sparkling water craze.

        Have you been watching me? Of course, I always take my own t-bags and sugar substitute. When we go on a trip, I take enough t-bags for 2 weeks and sugar sub. So, I have one suitcase full of sugar sub, t-bags and my pillow. I look like I’m moving in wherever we go. hehe

    Thank you ladies. It’s a shame but mom has never developed the taste for beef. Oh, she has some but would rather have a hot dog than a steak. Her taste has got to be in her toes but thar you go..strange. We understand dad’s likes much better.

    Loves,

    Congrats on the anniversary.
    Looks like everyone had a great dinner.
    The black stuff under the scallops may have been a truffle cream sauce (looking at the online menu).
    Mom would have like the steak & shrimp. She says one scallop is more than enough for her. Have you ever had abalone? If prepared well, it’s really yummy.

      A truffle cream you say? It very well could have been…it was delicious with the scallops. Never tasted abalone…I have a necklace a friend made from an abalone shell. Very colourful and shiny. I have never tasted the abalone itself though.

        We have a new Pet Smart here and mom doesn’t like it either. Too pricey and they don’t seem to have the stuff we like. Bosley’s is a great pet store but obviously only western Canada gets them.

      I didn’t know Pet Smart had such a dumb policy. Try it on in the store cause you can’t get it exchanged. How silly. I’m modest and don’t want to change in front of others….everyone watching me. Bad policy. Thanks for telling us.
