Insert Inappropriate Title Here

Tonight I ate at the Back Door Cafe.  I could not come up with a title involving back door that was even remotely appropriate.  The best I can think of is referencing the backside attack…even more inappropriate sounding, even though it’s an organic chemistry term.  But then o-chem probably makes you want to cringe!  So now I’m going to move on…

Back Door Cafe was an adorable little restaurant owned by a couple in Johnstown.  I found it in a google search and was excited to see their proclamation to use as much local food as possible.  A go to place in my mind.

I started with a Sam Adams Noble Pils.  Crisp, light, and refreshing.  Definitely went with my meal and in my opinion was light enough to go with just about anything.

For dinner I had half of a local chicken seasoned with pine nuts and tomato; savory and tender.  On the side was multigrain pilaf which was composed of quinoa, wild and white rice, and shallots; nutty and delicious.  And last but not least were globe carrots in  dill-lemon butter.  Crunchy and fresh.

I topped it off with a Berry Moscato Tira Misu…mmm mmm good.  It was a sponge cake moistened with Moscato wine and layered with raspberries, blueberries, and mascarpone whipped cream.  Hit the spot.

Leisurely dinners with good conversation are such a joy.  Especially when they are a week night treat.  Hard to believe it’s a Tuesday!  But that means I’m off to bed enjoy my gardening magazine and then hit the hay!  Good night!

What do you do to spice up your week nights sometimes?
