I LOVED the new lighter more french bistro-ish arrangement and the best part - it didn't cost me a DIME and I made money!! So it just goes to show you that it pays to shop your home (AND garden) prior to spending money un necessarily!

We did have some dinner first...this place is great if you LOVE cheese as there were many. I however am not a cheese fan and in fact a very fussy eater. I knew I wanted something light(as I was looking forward to DESSERT). I ordered the chilled carrot ginger puree soup with a cilantro olive oil. I did ask for it to be heated and it was DELICIOUS!! Lor and I also split an order of Garlic Monkey Bread that is served with prosciutto. This was TO DIE FOR! Jen had a cheese melt on pumpernickel served with a granny smith slaw. Now, I have to tell you I was a lil apprehensive as the portions were on the fancy(read small) side BUT the flavor was so delish that we actually savored the bites instead of gobbling it down and found we were very satisfied. Onto dessert....
I can't remember the exact name but it was something like "About Black Forest" which was a mod take on the traditional Black Forest Cake as this was a lil round vanilla cheescake ( I DO NOT LIKE cheesecake but this sounded so good) with tart cherries and a chocolate graham crust.
And last but NOT least Jen ordered Thoughts on a Peanut Butter Cup
