Sunday night we had family dinner night out at The Cottage in Wellesley. I've reviewed this place before (for breakfast) and was totally impressed but never had dinner there. Well, no surprise, the dinner was delicious and there are probably a dozen other dishes I can't wait to try.
I would have to say this is my FAVORITE interpretation of nachos I've ever tasted. Creatively delicious!
For dinner, I decided to go all out. I don't eat a ton of meat at home so when I'm out, I often order meat heavy dishes. Ordering the Short Rib Sliders was no exception.
Now that I've made short ribs twice, I know how much love goes into making that meat tender and delicious so when I saw this on the menu I had to trust my instincts and order.
My mom ordered the Crunchy Granola Mahi Mahi. The Cottage makes their own Granola and this dish packed so much flavor. I loved the sweetness of the granola balanced with the capers and lemon sauce.
The Cottage has got to be one of my favorite restaurants in the suburbs. And I honestly cannot wait to go back. The menu had so many options, there are so many other things I want to try! This is a must-go place if you are ever west of the city!
The weather has been gorgeous in Boston lately, so the hubby cleaned off the grill and decided he wanted to make a rotisserie chicken. I bought the 6 pounder and we tied it up and placed it on the rotisserie. In an hour and a half, the chicken was done and cooked perfectly. Dave placed water on the bottom of the tin foil and the steam helped keep the chicken moist. He also basted the chicken and flavored it with salt, pepper, olive oil and some butter.
Served with a side salad and some basil pesto mustard from Stonewall Kitchen, it was the perfect Monday night meal.
And you can't beat eating outside in April : )
In other news, I'm staying pretty calm about the race. I'm excited- bring it on Boston!
