Eating out

July 5, 2010

Hope you all had a great Canada day weekend and Happy July 4th!    Looks like summer may be done here in Edmonton with a high of 11 degrees so far today!   Oh well, it’s a good day for getting things done.   The man and I try to have date night once a week now that the girls can stay alone for a while and I try to pick a different restaurant each time (especially when we’re in a different city).  This Saturday we chose a pub close to home and kept it simple.     Brewsters is a casual restaurant/bar with a typical sports bar feel to it.  As its name would imply, they brew their own beer.  I ordered a small plate of shrimp tempura to start which definitely satisfied my craving for something greasy!   The shrimp were cut in half and then thickly battered, so much that I had to search for them.  I ended up taking most of the tempura off.   For my entrée I stuck with a less greasy salad.  Sadly they had no blue cheese dressing (a pub with no blue cheese!) so instead I had beer mustard which lacked the beer and I suspect was just a dijonnaise.  For my salad, the combination of green beans, boiled eggs, baby potatoes along with mesclun and candied pecans tasted as wrong as it sounds.

Nope, didn’t work for me but Steve was very happy with his Bison burger

and I thought his pickle was the best part of the meal!

The girls were also happy when we did a drive thru to Mickey D’s on the way home…..

Not the best food but still a nice night out!  I’m already thinking about where to eat next week……
