.: Dinner by the Water :.

jab and i went out to dinner last night to celebrate his new job. i wanted to take a walk in the park, it's been so pretty out and plus, i'm on a keeping in shape kick. what is it about the warm weather that makes one want to get in shape? it was a lovely walk thru the park. people were walking their dog, there was a couple having a picnic on a blanket; it was a picturesque scene.

in the distance i could see the Natty boh building.



i also enjoyed the dandelions. i know they're weeds or whatever but i've always liked them.




he was craving some oysters so he took me to bo brooks down by the water in Canton. i'd never even heard of the place but the walk was invigorating and rumor has it, oyster season is almost over. we were lucky to have a seat outside, we had a view of the boats and setting sun.

the hostess was a tad bit too tan so early in the season and i thought, slightly rigid. i noticed throughout the night that her demeanor did not improve. we ordered a dozen Hope Dale oysters, half pound of steamed shrimp and jerk chicken skewers. everything was delicious. over all, the oysters were plump and juicy, the shrimp were cooked just right and sprinkled with Old Bay and the jerk sauce really made all the difference for the chicken.

BUT. the dessert was by far the best item at the table. i ordered the Chocolate Marble Tiger Cake that was just so decadent... divine... luxurious. i'm going to have to take kelcy to this place so she can figure out the recipe for me. i think it was the icing that did it for me. normally i have a bite or two and i'm done. jab never rarely eats dessert and he isn't the biggest fan of chocolate but we definitely went to town on that cake!



the view from where i was sitting ....

  1. agreed on the dandelions. weeds or not, they are such a bright sign that summer is approaching.

    dinner sounded delish! maybe the waitress was mad b/c she HAS to tan and you don't. just sayin'.
