I had to get up early for a chiro appointment yesterday, so breakfast was just a quick Special K bar on the way out the door….more like a pre-breaky snack I suppose. (BTW…those Peanut Almond ones are OK, but pretty dry). When I got back I was lounging on the couch with my book while Mom slept in, so had some coffee and a plum to tide me over. Later I made us tuna sammiches for lunch.

Dinner was out at Fisherman’s Cove in Eastern Passage….and big touristy waterside restaurant called Boondocks. It was OK…it’s off season now, so it wasn’t super busy or anything and because the weather is windy and a lot colder we couldn’t sit outside. I had expected it to be nicer, but Mom was happy with it so all was good.

We decided to order the Surf-n-Turf platter for two. It was MASSIVE. Caesar salads to start, steak to share, a lobster to share (poor Larry!), a huge piece of lightly battered haddock, shrimp, scallops, two huge dishes of steamed mussels, baked potatoes, rice pilaf, steamed veggies, and corn on the cob.

The steak was stringy so I only ate about half of my half…so that was fine. And I purposely only put half of my potato on my plate. I had a few forkfuls of rice off the tray but didn’t put any on my actual plate. The haddock was good with some tarter sauce on it, but I ate it last so I didn’t eat much because I was full. I of course did eat all of my share of poor Larry, plus most of the mussels and all of my scallops and shrimpies. Mostly dipped in butter, but it was only a small dish of butter and I barely used 1/3 of it. I ate a good portion of the veggies, but the corn on the cob was way overcooked.

Most of it was pretty tasty, but I guess I’m becoming a snob after all of the quite nice places DBF and I have been for dinner here. I had fun with Mom, but it’s certainly not a place I would chose to go again. And the service was freaking terrible. The place wasn’t busy at all, and at first he was basically rushing us on our drink choices, then once he brought our food….he never came back. Good thing we didn’t really need anything. I actually had to flag him down to get the tartar sauce at one point. And it took forever for him to come clear our table when we were obviously done. He got a shitty tip for his shitty service and we didn’t stay for dessert.

Mom quite enjoyed herself though, aside from the slowass server, so all in all a big success.

We are off to Mahone Bay today, so breakfast of coffee and fruit and maybe a bagel or something before we go. Lunch and fudge when we get there. 🙂 No idea about dinner but I’ll probably whip something up here.
