Dinner Out at Smoke On Cherry

Had an amazing dinner tonight. And the best two things about it - someone else cooked it and we were with good friends while eating it. Actually three best things, I need to add Abby, the fabulous Bartender/Waitperson at Smoke On Cherry who suggested the best stuff on the menu to order. Plus, she brought me a taste of the Grits that only came with the Scallops, since I'd never had Grits before. (I had vowed to eat Grits the next time I went out to eat anyplace that had Grits on the menu, but really wanted a steak.) These Grits were wonderful, kind of like Polenta without the pretense, like a Hominey Rissotto. They were loaded with bacon and cheddar cheese. I got the Fried Egg Salad, which had Frissee lettuce, bacon, and a perfectly fried egg. At least it looked perfect when I first saw it - you get to see what it looked like after I had eaten half of it. As usual, I was more interesting in eating than getting a good picture. That screen that the adorable Abby is holding has the dessert menu on it. Pretty good idea.

  1. Cooking grits is pretty easy. And, you can add all sorts of good stuff to it, but you must eat it FRESH.
