Today was fun! I love having visitors because it forces you to explore your own town. We went to several new-to-us spots today and quite enjoyed them all.
Breakfast at Lake Effect Diner.
I’ve put off going for years but now we’ll be going back, soon. I loved seeing this on the menu -
but I actually went with a vegan choice.
Vegan Burger – “house prepared veggie burger with blend of navy beans, barley, oats, vegetables, herbs, and accented with toasted sunflower seeds.”
I ate every bite, sans bun, topped with ketchup and red onion.
I also ate several bites from my dad’s turkey sausage.
I loved that menu was loaded with vegan, vegetarian, and poultry substitute options.
Lunch was consumed at the mall. A piece of pretzel with tons of mustard.
Self-serve froyo, duh.
A little tart froyo, a lot of popping boba.
Plus an orange in the car.
Our main afternoon entertainment was wine tasting.
We broke mid-tour to look at Lake Ontario.
Then finished up with a champagne toast.
Adam and I shared at several places so I think I drank a little less than last time.
We ate dinner at AcQua, which was good but not as good as it could/should have been. Bread with butter to start.
I ordered the shrimp and scallop scampi for my meal.
I gave away 80% of my scallops and packed up 80% of my pasta for Adam’s lunch but adored the giant shrimp (dipped in cocktail sauce).
Dessert was the best thing going.
I ate half each of the last four macarons.
Pistachio, maple and apple, chocolate hazelnut caramel, and strawberry with marshmallow. A delicious way to end the evening!
