How was your weekend? Valentine's Day was just another Friday. We ate at home, nothing special. Hubby did buy me a bouquet of flowers and a card. He has to work nights so we were going to go out Saturday night. Well, we almost ended up at McDonald's! Our goal was Red Lobster but they had nearly a 2 hour wait! NOT going to happen. Drove past other restaurants and the lots were full!
I remembered a place north of Green Bay near Dykesville. It is call The Club Chalet. It is a bit off the beaten path (highway). Thank God for the smart phone. "Chalet, Dykesville WI" "Do you want directions?" "Yes!" "Can we have your location?" "Yes!" Wa la! We "found" our way.
We didn't wait long and we had a seat at a party bar. We had a couple of drinks and decided what we were going to have. Jim said, "Have the lobster!" (Don't have to twist my arm!). Delicious meal by the window (and a heater). Our meal included assorted spreads and veggies, salad, soup, the whole works. Did I take a picture? No....my lobster was here!
When we left it was snowing heavily. I was nervous going home although I KNOW my husband is an excellent driver in the snow (what about the other drivers?). I was glad to get home.
Yesterday we went to get my Mom. She has been feeling so cooped up this winter. Jim had ice to remove from the garage (the driveway was a rink), but he managed (although he grumbled about it).
Mom was so glad to be over! We had joined Sam's Club and for joining got a certificate for a rotisserie chicken, scalloped potatoes and apple pie. We picked that up Saturday night so guess what I served on Sunday! (It still beat the nursing home dinner!) The best way to heat up a chicken? Cut it apart, pour about 1/4 cup of chicken broth on top and put on low. Chicken was hot and moist!
