I should probably start by saying that this was a steak house with one seafood entree on the menu. While the rest of the guys contemplated what kind of cut they would be getting, I quickly closed my menu...seafood would be sitting in front of me tonight.
We chatted and joked as we waited for our food to be served. Steak was passed around the table, and oval ceramic containers full of succulent asparagus cuts, garlic mashed potatoes (cloves included), and sauteed mushroom heads were laid out on the table. My plate was the last to be delicately placed on the table.

After savoring the first bite, I began to inhale the rich goodness that filled my plate. The Captain, sitting across from me, carefully leaned over and hinted that I should slow down before the white wine arrived. He assured me that the wine would accentuate my meal...but it hadn't arrived yet and I wanted the rest of the plate to join my tummy. I smiled and slowly began to pick at the remaining bits on my plate as I waited for my wine. All I can say is....YUM!
