No longer a virgin

That would be E in regards to the Marathon Grill in Palm Harbor, Fl. Had ya going there for a moment, didn't I? lol

I first learned first hand about the culinary pleasures of this little restaurant tucked to the side of a strip mall off HW19 many many moons ago when Jacque and Di adopted me at what is now Posh Scraps on Tampa Road. We took to gathering to scrap on Wed. and they lured me to this place again and again for our lunches out. In return, I took them to Jack Wiley's Tiki Bar and Restaurant where a large white bird developed a crush on our Jacque.

Today, E and I were right near Marathon, to which I had been trying to get him for at least the last two years, opening a saving account for our next year's trip to Aus/NZ at the credit union. It was after 1pm and we were hungry and he caved...and he will cave again and again. He loved it. And what is not to love...I got the low fat chicken plate and he got my favorite ...the chicken feta spinach with the basil chips. To die for.

I ate about 1/4 of my salad and have half left of my meal (top photo) for dinner's left over night at our house. E fixed us shrimp in a lemon sauce over pasta meal last night that would melt the enamel off your teeth...and for Lynda Kay...he has no recipe...he just winged it.

Busy weekend coming up filled with fun and frolic...stay tuned and hope yours looks good too.
