What a night…fun is NEVER EVER overrated. Its good for the body, mind and soul. It puts a spring in your step. Carleen, Daniel, Stone and I arrived at Vlad's right on time. We began our evening with cocktails, as Vlad proceeded telling us a story.

For my main entree I ordered the Rabbit a La Moutarde prepared in a white wine sauce, with Dijon, carrots, pearl onions, mushroom and potatoes. Who knew rabbit, which is similar to chicken, taste so good. This also was a first for me.

Never passing up on dessert, I ordered the Floating Island. This slightly toasted soft meringue, floating in creme anglaise and drizzled lightly with caramel, was the perfect ending to my meal. Sweet, but not to heavy.
Not wanting the evening to end, we returned to Vlad's home to have a Nightcap, all the while elaborating on his previous story. I love perfect nights like this and never want them to end. Unfortunately, it was nearing midnight and someone was beginning to yawn, aka Stone, who was up very early with a tee-time for golf. Hugs and kisses where given as we walked out into the night, planning our next story time and where it will lead us.
