We decided to just go all in, and we went with the four-course menu. For the first course, we got a pot of Aged Whiskey Cheddar, and we dipped breads, veggies, and fruits. And who knew fruits would be so good dipped in cheese?!? The second course was salads, and I had a fabulous spinach & strawberry salad. For the third course, we each picked two skewers. I chose beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon and coconut shrimp, and my picky husband really expanded his horizons by choosing plain chicken and garlic chicken (ha).
They brought out the raw meat on skewers with some mushrooms and grilled vegetables. They took away the cheese (sob) and replaced it with a grill on our table, so we could grill our own food. We so wanted to do it right, that I actually whipped out my iphone so we could time when to flip it and when it was done. It was actually a lot of fun to grill our own food. And it really was soo delicious. Especially the coconut shrimp. They also gave us 6 different delicious sauces to dip our meats in. My favorite was the yogurt curry. And we had to laugh, because when our friend Mike was here a few weeks ago he told us numerous times how crazy he was about dipping sauces. So we talked about how much Mike would love this!!!
Finally, it was time for the final course, arguably our favorite course-the dessert course. We picked the peanut butter swirl chocolate fondue. They bring you out the chocolate, and then they set it on fire so you can roast marshmallows over it. They also brought out fruits (strawberries, bananas, and grapes), rice krispe treats, brownie bites, and cookie dough.
We really had a blast. It was such a great way to celebrate our anniversary because it was a new experience, and it took about two hours, and it gave us plenty of time to talk.
P.S-Can you tell from the pictures who loves bacon and who doesn't?
