Last night we had the amazing opportunity to sample the brand new menu at the very exclusive members only Hamilton Club in Lancaster City. One of our friends helped with the clubs bar redesign and last night was their soft-soft opening (aka, the opening before the soft opening). It was so fun to get all dolled up! We totally felt like VIPs!
I was in desperate need of some new black heels. My old pair was, well, very old and not cute any longer. So I headed to the mall yesterday and came home with what may, or may not, be considered stripper heels.
We were given 5 or 6 appetizers, 5-7 main dishes, and 3 desserts to share as a table and taste. It was so fun! I wasn’t able to get pictures of all the dishes, but here is a sampling:
These raviolis were AMAZING! They were stuffed with cheese, and that is a walnut pesto topping with a balsalmic reduction. They were definitely one of my favorite things of the night!
Another favorite of mine were these little dumplings. SO GOOD! Shrimp is not my favorite, so I passed on those guys.
Beef Carpachio. This was also really good. The texture was a little hard for me to handle. Those are all the picture I managed to get of the food. It was such a fun night and something that we will probably never get the opportunity to do again!
Today has been a typical Sunday: Studying, making foodz, and movie night!
Lunch was leftover pizza from Friday night and sweet potato fries!
Dinner tonight was vegetarian chili and caramelized onion goat cheese cornbread. Aka, DELICIOUSNESS, and the best cornbread I have every made!
I was really excited to use my new cast iron skillet, which is basically the entire reason I chose to make this for dinner tonight. I really cant rave enough about this cornbread. I was surprised, however, that the goat cheese flavor didn’t come through more. I would never have known there was any in it if I have not put it in myself.
Has anyone been watching America’s Next Great Restaurant? Jeremy and I watched the first two episodes today. I can already tell I’m definitely going to really enjoy the show. The ComplEat restaurant concept is my favorite so far. I love the saucy ball guy too! I love TV shows about food!
