a little bit of wine with your whine?

A stressful week with a fast approaching payday meant dinner out on Friday and what better way to dine then with a little bit of wine? Comfort food was on the mind, so we made our way to Burgoo, which is quickly becoming one of our favourite places for dinner.

Before anything else, wine was needed. Immediately.
Instead of a second glass of wine, I opted for a sweet strawberry lemonade. Summer in a cocktail.
Burgoo's cheddar and parsley biscuits are absolutely delicious and homemade to boot.
Tried a little something different this time around: Downright Dip -- chilled spinach, smoked salmon, fresh herb and cream cheese dip, served with flatbread crisps.
For my entree, I had the half order of the Irish Stew -- Guinness braised lamb with potato, rutabaga and homemade dumplings, served over garlic mash potatoes. So good and so very filling! Ended up taking home some leftovers.
French onion soup is all about comfort goodness. Made with deeply roasted onions in rich beef broth with country style croutons slow baked with gooey Gruyere, Emmenthal and Mozzarella. Delicious.
