I had every intention of making some great meal today for my family with Spelt Right Pizza dough. Only there were a few stumbling blocks - or perhaps, a few thousand stumbling blocks (or bagels that is) that needed to be made and packaged (thank you Kip and crew). Also, it didn't help that I forgot to thaw out a pizza dough.
My bi-weekly delivery of Everything Emma bagels to the Pepper Club in Portland, Maine gave me a novel idea. Eat at the Pepper Club and give yourself a break. What a great place, incredible food, and a wonderful deal. $21 price fixed for appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Everything at the Pepper Club is made with the best ingredients and with such care under the supervision of the owners Mary and Eddie.
Appetizer: Carrot and almond (??) soup. Can't remember the details, but it was DELICIOUS.
Entree: Almond encrusted salmon, brown rice, mesclun greens, and house made dressing (EXCELLENT, and I was even kind enough to save some for the kids whom we left at home :)!)
Dessert: House Made Key Lime Pie (Need I say more??) This fine dessert was devoured on site and none made it home to the kids.
My review? Five Stars.
Tomorrow night back home to the dough.
Kids are responsible for the recipe though as Mom will be back to her stumbling blocks.
