This was the question that was asked by my mother every day when we spoke. We both enjoyed talking about food.
She passed away in 2006. I miss someone asking that question.
So this is where I will tell whomever what I am making for dinner.
Tonight we had dinner at Penny Lane Pub in Old Saybrook. We went there before going to see the Smithereens at the Kate.
Dinner was good. We started with drinks and County Cork Calamari, "tender rings freshly breaded and fried, tossed with banana peppers. Wasabi and marinara sauces." The sauces were good, especially the Wasabi. The Calamari was okay. I prefer it a little crispier.
For an entree, I had Polenta and Grilled Vegetable Melt. Grilled polenta cake topped with squash, roasted bell peppers, onions, Portobello mushrooms, asparagus, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese, finished with a balsamic glaze. I loved this. The vegetables were grilled perfectly and the balsamic glaze was fantastic. Anything with polenta gets my vote.
Chris had the Bison burger with Jalapeño Bacon. Yes, it was Jalapeño Bacon!
The Smithereens put on a great show. It was a perfect end to a crazy week!
