Strawberry Shortcake...the Perfect Dinner

This weekend we headed down to visit family in Rye, NY. We had a great time catching up and also had some great food! Dinner was so good that we forgot to take pictures. The scrumptious menu included:

Grilled Jack Daniels marinated flank steak
Brats sauteed in beer with onions
Wild rice salad with cranberries
Potato and green bean salad
Mixed green salad
Whole grain bread
Grilled corn

We also had some fun wines with the appetizers and the meal. The house wine, Gazela Vinho Verde, was light and refreshing - I'm going to have to pick up a case and make it the house wine here. We also had a zinfandel, pinot noir, and a fourth that I can't remember (the effect of trying them all).

Dessert was so good that it could have been a dinner by itself. We had strawberry shortcake with homemade shortbread and vanilla whipped cream. Strawberry shortcake is one of those desserts that I order whenever I see it on a menu and no matter how full I am I make room. The portions were my sized here - huge! Here's a close up picture to drool over:

Thanks to our hosts for a fabulous visit! Stay tuned for the good eats on our road trip back up through Connecticut casino country.
