Last night I had a spur of the moment opportunity to go to Coopershawk Winery in Orland Park, one of my favorite restaurants. I've been there enough times that I've had all the chicken entrees and all of the 'favorites' marked by a feather on the menu.
So this time I had the pistachio-encrusted grouper with their Pinot Gree. The grouper was fabulous, buttery with the pistachios crispy and crunchy. The asparagus tasted like it was springtime and the mashed potatoes were, as aways a carb-lovers paradise. I liked the Pinot Gree by itself, but with dinner I should have just had water. Lesson learned on that. I'd tell you about dessert, but I am not a dessert person. The only time I have dessert at a dinner out is when it is at a Tastefully Simple conference or trip and the dessert is part of our dinner. If I would have had dessert last night, I think I would have liked a 1/2 portion of the grouper! It was that good.
