Actually, the Meatloaf and Seafood were two different meals. Let’s start with the Meatloaf. Either you like it or you don’t! I like it. I like a good meatloaf. And Robin does, too. So, outside of your kitchen, or my kitchen, it is, as Winemaker Joe Swann, Swan Vineyards, Forestville, CA, would say, “You can’t get a good meatloaf at a restaurant.” Well …. I will say it is very difficult to find one, but not impossible. Tommy’s Meatloaf, at the Buzz here in Boise, is one place, out of all the restaurants in Boise, to get a good meatloaf. It is awesome!! There is, though, another place that is near Boise, actually at Sunny Slope in Marsing, to get a super meatloaf. At the Orchard House! Both the Buzz and the Orchard House make theirs from scratch. No frozen, make believe meatloaf. Just fresh and usually local ingredients. And when you go, let them know you saw this article on this blog!
And then, for an evening dinner, we went to the Bonefish Grille for seafood. A good dinner. Look at these.
Bang Bang Shrimp
Trout with Twice Steamed Green Beans and Garbanzo Beans.
To sum the day up – A Yum Day!! And of course while we were at Sunny Slope, we had to stop in at Fujishin Family Cellars and get six bottles of their Merlot, six bottles of their Cabernet Sauvignon and a case of their Viognier. The merlot, a 2009 vintage, is awesome. Cheers!!
