HarvestBall

ho hum, another anniversary...

Tonight, rsc and I went to dinner at Duckworths, a new Gloucester restaurant in an old place that has had other good restaurants. This was to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. It was a week late, but that is par for the course for our celebratory dinners.

I had Seared Sea Scallops in Duck Confit - a bit weird but quite good; for the second course had Sea Bass with artichokes and zucchini in a tomato provencale sauce. Robert had Oysters with a spicy vinegar sauce and Muscovy Duck breast with peaches and other stuff.

I had a glass of Russian River J, Pinot Gris and Robert had the Chateau St. Michelle Washington Sauvignon Blanc for our appetizers and I had the Sauvignon Blanc and he had the Paso Robles Zinfandel for the second course.

Duckworths sells wine by the 3 or 6 oz glass, and not being sots we went for the 3s. They also serve main courses in appetizer size portions which is what we ordered leaving lots of room for desert.

We split the chocolate, chocolate, chocolate mousse cake and a peach cobbler with cinnamon ice cream for desert.

Yum, yum, yum. Everything was good.

I did ask if he wanted to renew for another year. He replied that he didn't know we had options. I guess since we were a week late, they'd already automatically been extended. Sounds good to me.

And next month we get to celebrate our 32nd anniversary! On that night it will not be a fancy meal since it will be at Fenway Park.
