Ammon and I were able to go on a date last Friday (it’s not something that happens often!). Since it was my birthday weekend, I chose to go out to dinner. It’s one of my favorite things to do, probably b/c if we’re at home, I do all the cooking and cleaning up afterwards, so it’s a luxury to go out and have someone do all of that for you!
We went to the Bon Ton in Ouray, Co (about 30 min from where we are). I’d heard good things about it and the menu looked good, but I had no idea just how wonderful it would be! We started with Bear Creek Mushrooms sauteed in butter, roasted garlic and red peppers. Followed by the world’s best clam chowder (I swear! You’d never have known you were in a mountain town eating seafood). Then I had a great salad with spinach, brie, shrimp, pecans and a raspberry walnut vinagrette. Ammon had the filet with mashed taters and green beans almondine. Is your mouth watering yet? To finish, we shared the creme brulee cheesecake. Ta-dah! Seriously, an amazing meal, great service and a wonderful, romantic evening.
