This past Saturday the family took my dad out to the Melting Pot to celebrate his birthday.
As usual we saved our appetite all day for the big night out and our favorite ying yang cocktails.
The big night out this time around featured an American theme with a Boston Lager Cheddar Cheese first course, a Wisconsin Wedge Salad for the second course and a Chocolate Wildberry Crunch for dessert (which was a take on the classic PB&J). The main course featured items such as Old Bay Shrimp, Buffalo Chicken, Memphis- Style BBQ Pork Tenderloin and Lobster. The item that I thought Chris would shy away from was the Wild Mushroom Sacchetti, which was a little pasta like package of mushroom and cheese. I don't know if it was the fondue experience, but not only did Chris eat both of his mushroom sacchetti, he also ventured to try a mushroom cap which came with the bowl of veggies.
And yes he is sticking his tongue out because I told him I had to get a picture of this momentous occasion!
I was shocked when he went back for another! Although I didn't cook it, I'm going to mark that as a win on the 30 before 30 list and start looking for recipes that incorporate mushrooms so I can hopefully keep this veggie streak going.
Are you more likely to try something new when you're out at a restaurant?
