Dinner with Charlotte

Charlotte and I have been longtime friends, and through the years, we have a seasonal winter tradition of eating out together, usually around this time of year.  So last Saturday we went and dined at our most favorite place – Bonefish Grill.

Charlotte and I have similar tastes and we usually end up getting the same appetizers and meals.  Definitely a case of great minds and stomachs thinking alike!

For our appetizer, when we’re at Bonefish, a must is the Bang Bang Shrimp.  Always a delight!

I have a habit where if I have time, I would Google the restaurant and its menu so I can take my time and decide what I want to eat.  That way, once at the restaurant, I don’t need to even think about it. 

What can I say?

I like being prepared.

So that night’s dilemma for me was between: (quoted from their menu)

the Icelandic Wolf Fish Francaisesauteed with wild Rock Shrimp + garlic lemon wine sauce, served on garlic whipped potatoes.


the Lobster Thermidor Dorado (Mahi)topped with sweet lobster, lump crab + a velvety sauce with a hint of sherry, served on garlic whipped potatoes.

Decisions, decisions.  And what the heck is Wolf Fish?

After consulting with the waiter, who was quite helpful, Charlotte and I chose the Lobster Thermidor Dorado.  The two sides that came with the meal were spaghetti squash with a sprinkle of brown sugar and garlic whipped potatoes.

It was my first time sampling spaghetti squash and it was quite tasty.  The potatoes, on the other hand, was good but quite garlicky.

My friend Charlotte is a lovely person, and just finished radiation therapy.  She is a breast cancer survivor and I’m so glad that she’s here to share another tasty meal with me.

Here’s to many more years of continuing our lovely dining tradition, Charlotte.
