Just Ducky

I went to Wegman's while I was out and about in VA. I heard that their cupcakes were quite yummy, so naturally I had to buy a four pack of cupcakes. They were pretty lackluster. The vanilla was slightly better than the chocolate, but nothing I'd be rushing to purchase or recreate.

Waaaay Late

Rick took me to Joeseph Decuis for Valentine's day. It was one of the most memorable Valentine's Day's I have ever had, far exceeding any expectations. They had a limited selection available for Valentine's Day. This is what we ordered:

Amuse Bouche:
A lobster bisque with a lemon grass foam

Ahi Tuna served on a Kimchee pancake with a wasabi cream sauce
Indian chicken samosas delicious with the chutney and an annoyed Rick (I was taking too many photos)

Filet mignon osso bucco served atop a bed of creamy polenta with mushrooms and truffle oil. The meat fell off the bone. Wow, it was so delicious and although the meat was supposed to be the highlight, I could have eaten a bowl of the polenta.

Macadamia nut encrusted seabass

Ginger mousse on meringue disc
Chocolate cake

Ambiance was nice, felt like I was dining in a cellar. Overall it was a fantastic meal coupled with a fantastic date.
