Just a really quick posting this time around. Our anniversary (16 years if you please!!) was this past Thursday. Not really knowing too many fancy restaurants, we booked reservations at what is really becoming my favourite dining spot in the entire Niagara Region – The Keg – in St. Catharines. I’m old fashioned – I love a really good steak with some kind of potato and a tasty veg. The Keg has delivered those loves each and every time we’ve been. This newly updated restaurant in a beautifully renovated old brick building has a lovely ambience of warmth and friendliness. The food is varied enough that even a 3-year old boy sitting at the next table was able to have a great meal that he actually ate all of, and without Mom’s coaching!! Naturally, being the beef lover that I am – and only good Canadian beef – I ordered the Teriyaki Steak done to perfection, accompanied by light and fluffy baked potato and grilled vegetables that were crunchy and ooooh so good. Nat had the same and being the fish lover that he is even agreed that his meal was wonderful.
While enjoying the last of our wine, our very friendly waitress laid in front of us a plate of their infamous Billy Miner Pie – a large slice of mocha ice cream on a bed of chocolate crust with hot fudge, caramel and almond slices – containing a lit sparkler and compliments of the house! Nat and I dug in despite the fact we like to wait an hour or so before dessert. It was gorgeous, delicious and yummy all at the same time. I couldn’t have asked for a better anniversary meal. Thank-you Love of My Life!!!
