Chicken Saltimbocca & Grilled Pork Loin

No I did not cook two meals. We received a gift certificate for Elizabeth's Cafe for Christmas. I love this place. We started by sharing the Three Cheese Ravioli. The marinara sauce was very good. We also tried the Crispy BBQ Duck Confit Spring Rolls. Amazing. The duck was so smoky and the Expresso BBQ Sauce was nice and rich. I don't eat duck that often... not sure when I may have had it, but I look forward to my next encounter. And hopefully the Spring Rolls will still be on the menu the next time we eat at Elizabeth's Cafe.
For dinner Chris had the Grilled Pork Loin. It was a large piece of pork that was cooked perfectly. It was served with Sweet and Sour Cabbage, Twice-Baked Potato and Apple Cider Sauce. I had the Chicken Saltimbocca. It had all my favorite things on one plate - House-made Pappardelle, Fresh Peas, Tiny Tomatoes, Fresh Mozzarella and Prosciutto. I cleaned the plate!
We had a bottle of Sattobosco San Gimignano Rosso 2006. I need to try a black currant. It seems descriptions of wines use it as a reference quite often... if it tastes like the wine than I will probably like it!
