After a hard day Op Shopping I wasn’t sure going out to dinner would be such a great idea. I thought Aidan had done it a bit rough, I thought I needed to just chill and not get dressed up and be all social. Mum convinced me otherwise and said that if I didn’t go and have my very first lobster dinner, the one I’d been drooling about all week, I’d regret it.
We had a nice nap and then headed out for dinner at one of my Mum & Dad’s favourite regular places, “The Deck“. The staff are really friendly and everyone wanted to meet “The Grandson”. Steve and I went there last year with the family and it was really good. I gave a sigh of relief as I sat down. Aidan was happy, Mum was happy and I was going to get Lobster.
I took Aidan in his stroller and after he had his “Boobie Bottle” he happily laid there and just chilled. All the diners kept sneaking peeks and asking questions about him. It was really lovely.
I’d ordered “Ship & Shore” a gorgeous sirloin steak, prawns and lobster on a bed of vegetables with Bearnaise sauce. The most expensive dinner I’d ever ordered but one of the things I’d promised I’d do once I’d had Aidan and was allowed to eat seafood again. When it arrived I started looking for the mouth-watering medallions of lobster… but they were no where to be found. Nada. Zip. They’d run out and gave me extra prawns instead. I was gutted. No, I was cranky… nay, pissed.
So I had a lovely mouse cake for dessert to lessen the pain. I’ll try and get my first lobster dish when we’re up there again over Christmas. 3 years the charm.
