Last night John and I had a date night. We had a groupon for Mouzon House in Saratoga. A place that really is not in our budget without a groupon. In fact, we went about a year ago with our last groupon LOL!
It’s a wonderful old house that has been converted to a restaurant with a New Orleans flair to it. Unfortunately, they no longer offer the half portions of dinners. Not sure why, but that meant no appetizer.
They did bring out some fresh grilled flat bread, though.
This was whole wheat and really good. I had a few pieces.
My entree choice was the Quail Gumbo. This is a farm-to-table restaurant and they use local purveyors for meat and produce. So, I thought I would try the quail.
It pretty much came with the whole little bird in there! It was a small bird. The whole thing was maybe the size of a normal chicken thigh. The gumbo was excellent, too!
John had shrimp and grits:
Not the best picture. So good as well!
After eating, we walked around downtown Saratoga. It’s nice to see this chiropractor with a sense of humor.
And the answer to the meaning of life?
We wanted something sweet, so we popped into Spot Coffee for a bit of decaf and split a S’mores bar.
This was half of the bar! Very tasty, too. We love this place and they are opening one up in Glens Falls early this summer. Yay!
Today brought my new head protection. I have tried 3 different brands of helmets over the years: Schwinn, Bell and Giro. Giro is definitely my favorite. It’s a good quality helmet and the outer shell is part of the styrofoam helmet instead of just being a covering (the problem with my cracked old helmet).
It’s a floral print with lots of color:
My helmet prop:
Pixie says “Really?”
There will be no painting of this helmet. Too cool looking as it is. Now I am out to take my new helmet for a spin!
