Our Friday, August 19, dinner at 3 Doors Down Cafe

Milton, Kay and I rode the bus to the restaurant for dinner. We were tired from all of our sight-seeing fun and very hungry. Leland joined us there, and Lamont was in the kitchen, cooking away--the only way it would have been better would be to have Kailey and my brother Howard and his wife Vanessa up from Mississippi with us. Turns out that's for another post.

We four shared the first appetizer: Grilled peaches topped with shredded duck made special for us by my older son, sous chef Lamont

Leland and Milton shared this appetizer: Steamer clams, pan-steamed with white wine, basil, garlic & parmesan cheese

Kay and I shared the two salads.
Organic greens, raspberry poppy seed vinaigrette, hard cheese & toasted almonds

Panko-crusted fried eggplant with cherry tomatoes and mozzarella

Milton and Kay each had this entree: Grilled Painted Hills flat iron steak, potato pave, Romano beans, and roasted garlic butter

My entree, the evening's special: Braised rabbit with house-made capellini pasta and mushrooms, onion and maybe bits of bacon--I forgot to ask.

Leland's entree was the house-made ricotta cheese cavatelli pasta with pork and beef sugo. The photo did not turn out very well, but it's a wonderful dish. I've had it a time or two.

Milton, Kay and I decided on dessert--we have our favorites from the dessert menu at 3 Doors Down.

Kay's banana cream pie

Milton's bread pudding

Good thing that we do not live close to all this good food. I gained 5 lbs just looking at the pictures!

This all looks so delicious. Both of my sons work in restaurants and it takes a lot of skill to make food that looks and tastes good.

I am sure your family in MS are drying out by now. Lee has moved NE and a side benefit of all the rain is that the temperatures have come down significantly. I hope it stays this way for a while.
