To celebrate we drove to Ainsley's restaurant on Brookville Lake. We had not been there for several years, and they have done some updating which was a pleasant surprise.
Thursday evening was in the 70's with a nice breeze so we were able to eat outside - as far as I'm concerned, the only place to eat there - with a view of the marina and lake. So Mike, myself and a million mosquitoes enjoyed a leisurely dinner! (Actually the mosquitoes weren't bad due to the breeze, but there were little swarms of them all around - I suppose their last "harrah" before summer's end.)
I find this place so relaxing. The boats, sounds and smells of the lake remind me of dining at a Florida restaurant, so I always feel like I'm on a little vacation when we eat here.
Before dinner began I sent my daughter a quick text telling her where we were. There ensued some bantering texts between the two of us - and I sent her some photos of our delicious dinners just to egg her on, so to speak! (Hey - when you add several years to my birthday wishes, anything is fair game!)
Below you will see some of the photos of our pleasant evening.
|Looking at the marina across the lake - not nearly as nice as this one!|
|And so it begins - with onion straws shared by the two of us - you can see my husband's beer in the background. |
My beverage of choice was iced tea with lemon!
|His entree - grilled cod, sugar snap peas and rice pilaf with black beans and salsa|
|My choice was trout almandine, roasted potatoes and the sugar snap peas|

and we made our way home!
