For my birthday, we hit up Max's Wine Dive - my favorite date spot. We got a couple (okay or four) appetizers so for dinner, we split a salad... the Fried Chicken and Champagne Cobb Salad. We inhaled it. We came home and set out to duplicate such delicious-ness and have done so for the past two nights.
And no, lobster and steak is not a regular occurrence. It was a v-day special :). The chicken leg is more how we normally roll.
Champagne Cobb Salad
adapted from Max's Wine Dive
1 bunch of Romaine lettuce
1/2 avocado, sliced
sprinkle of bleu cheese
a couple cherry tomatoes
bacon crumbs (we use Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits)
2-3 hard boiled eggs
Combine and eat. Recommend repeating.
We also made Ina Garten's cauliflower gratin (subsituted swiss for guyere and left out the nutmeg - we just plain didn't have any - and sprinkled the top with Tony's). Y'all, it was so good that I debated eating it for breakfast. Then reality hit and I was already late to work so saved it for tonight. Cannot wait.
