Fancy meeting YOU here!!

I realized tonight that I haven't blogged in a few weeks....which is unlike me. Yes, don't worry, I have definitely been eating!! haha. I haven't gone out to dinner as much because we've been cooking at home. When we do go out it's just our normal sushi date or something else you've seen before.

Last Friday Carl and I had a date night. What a nice guy to text me and tell me to be ready by 5:30 because he had made reservations at a local restaurant. <3 We hadn't been to this restaurant in a while, so I was excited when he told me had made a reservation at Farm to Table Bistro. Farm to Table is located on route 9 in Fishkill, NY. The last time I was there with Carl and my parents, we shared a small appetizer portion of the best white macaroni and cheese made with pieces of shaved black truffles. There she goes again with those truffles, you're thinking. I know, I know. I will seriously try mac and cheese anywhere, and it's really an added bonus if anything and everything has truffles OR truffle oil. I'm getting away from myself here.

Carl made a reservation, but it was clear when we got there that he didn't need to do that. We were the only table there. I will just post my food choices for the night instead of getting into what I thought of the service. So here we go!
This was my main course. Seared duck with a fig demi, (have I mentioned how much I love figs??), summer vegetable Quinoa, and homemade mashed potatoes. Something I have said before is that I love duck. It really is something either you like or you don't. It is a bit oily and can be fatty in some spots. For me, I think that leads to the appeal. The texture, the crispy bite while the next bite is soft and buttery, and the flavor that lets you know you're eating something decadent. And we were!! The figs gave it that element of sweetness that cut through the richness of the duck. And if you've never tried Quinoa...well, what are you waiting for?? It's amazing. All you need to do is Google some recipes for Quinoa and you'll never stop eating it.
Of course when Creme Brulee is on the menu I'm going to get it!! Not the best I've ever had, but caramel is one of my favorite flavors. Caramel + Creme Brulee = Something I NEED to try. :-) It had the crispy top, just how I like it. The inside was rather watery, if you can believe it. It was a lot to finish. Good thing I had Carl to take a few bites away from me. :-)

I want to know, what is one of the best dishes you have ever eaten? It can be either an appetizer, an entree, or even a dessert. We all have a favorite. Tell me!! :-)
