July 4th is a special day… not only is it America’s birthday but it’s also Tony and my anniversary and we all know what’s more important!
This year Tony took me out to Salts, aB French influenced contemporary AmericanB restaurant. B Their own organic farm is located in Canterbury, New Hampshire and I’ve been salivating over photos of their food since I read about it a few weeks ago in a foodie mag.
We started with the highlight of the meal!
Just kidding! B While we waited for our app, the waitress brought over this soup that was a mix of roasted peppers and mushrooms! B So good. B The plate is so big and crazy though.
Next came our appetizer!
Bergamot Cured Ocean Trout that theyB splitB between two plate so Tony and I didn’t have to fork it out on who can eat faster so we could eat more.
All for the main course?
All mine! B Just kidding, this was the roasted duck for TWO… or just me on a long run day. Luckily for Tony I only ran a 3 miles that day. B It was perfect, crispy on the outside, soft and juicy on the inside! B I ate the apple herb stuffing and turnips in seconds and then I progressed to the beast.
They carved the duck for us and this is what the plate looked like for each of us. B We almost cleaned it and I thought we did a great job on the duck… that is until I turned around and saw there was still more than half of it left. B We did call it quits and took it to go. B A perfect dinner for later in the weekend.
Tony is hard at work there.
We were too full for dessert but the waitress brought these over with our check and how could we say no to free cookies
Yup, I guess we weren’t as full as I thought we were.
Quality price I pay for alwaysB forgettingB my camera but I guess memories are memories even in all blurry forms.
One of my favorite dinners with my favorite guy!
