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!


  1. That is a beautiful plate. What was the wine?

  2. The wine was Green Point Shiraz. The first time I've had it but it was really excellent. Here are some details:

  3. How wonderful! What restaurant was this at?
