Chicken, Steak and Chocolate Cake


Chicken, Steak and Chocolate Cake.

That's what I had for dinner last night. The awesome part of that is that it's one dish. Not in a gross I'm-going-to-pile-every-item-from-a-giant-buffet-on-my-plate-at-once-way but in a lovely segregated fashion.


And you had such an encouraging reminder to save room for dessert. And what a dessert. It was one of the richest, most decadent pieces of chocolate cake to touch my taste buds. It should have had a name like Death by Chocolate or Chocoholic's Ecstasy. Anyway, the whole meal was decadent . . . a 1:1 ratio of spud to fat for the mashed potatoes, bacon-wrapped filet, chicken sauced with beurre blanc. Definitely what the doctor ordered for a night out with the girls.

The late night pizza, unfortunately, was not of the same caliber, but that didn't stop me from eating it at 2 am.


Happy Memorial Day!

  2. The wine was Green Point Shiraz. The first time I've had it but it was really excellent. Here are some details: http://www.wine.com/V6/Green-Point-Shiraz-2005/wine/95903/detail.aspx
