The girls gave me gift certificates to Al Corso for my birthday so that we could all go out for dinner together. I really like how that worked out so well for them, too! It's the second time I've been there; it won't be the last. Al Corso is in the middle of nowhere, but people seem to come from everywhere -- man, they were busy!
We started the evening sharing appetizers -- Beet-Salmon over Buckwheat Waffle with Creme Fraiche, and Goat Cheese-Spinach-Artichoke Dip. Please, sir, may I have some more??? Everyone had something different for dinner -- Grilled Sirloin & Shrimp with au gratin potatoes, Tenderloin Stroganoff, Mustard-crusted Salmon over pasta, Shrimp Provencal over pasta, Pork Tenderloin Roulade with mashed potatoes, and Pecan-crusted Halibut with haystack onion rings and baby reds. Some of us took leftovers (along with our donut for the morning) and saved room for dessert: chocolate peppermint creme brulee, malted milk ball creme brulee, and chocolate cake.
Guess what I had!!
