Had Dinner reservations for the first time post Covid 19
0

Well we had visitors this weekend. They stayed at a B&B run by some friends of ours. We got together most days to socialize and eat food I prepared. So last Saturday we had pulled pork sandwiches and cole slaw. Saturday we had homemade pizza. Sunday I grilled marinated pork steaks (Marinated in Calvados apple Brandy, garlic, herbs and spices with  some orange juice added in), also on the grill was Turkey breast steaks liberally coated with pepper, thyme and basil. We also had fresh sweet corn, no not my own yet, with butter, salt and pepper. So Monday rolled around and they wanted to thank us for such great hospitality. We went to the local Gasthaus"der Brautoni'" which is the first time i have been to a restaurant since all this stuff began. We had reservations in the Beer Garden, so masks only were needed to pass through the restaurant itself. Once in the Beer Garden, being outside, no masks were required. All tables are set up quite far apart, so we were socially distanced from the other guests. Food was good and the beer was cold. All in all it wasn't too bad. Wearing a mask is not really all that bad.

With the fourth coming up, I hope you all practice safe social interactions and all come out on the 7th healthy and happy!

I took Momma Bear out to dinner weekend before last for the first time since the shut down.  We went to a local establishment that offers outdoor seating on a deck overlooking the river.  It was nice, but weather around here does not allow for that very often this time of year.  In my area we are in a holding pattern for opening back up so as long as things don't go backward we can do more of this now if weather allows and it should as we move into summer.  Distancing and masks and all that are in effect until further notice. It is by appointment only and we had to phone from outside to let them know we were there and then they send one masked bandit out to let us in. I feel horribly for the people in food service, they are really struggling to stay afloat. I left a huge tip. 

Momma Bear had the prime rib, and brought about half of it home cause it was HUGE.  I had the Salmon and a bowl of chowder.  Was just nice to get out for the first time in literally months.

Man, I love a good Prime Rib!

I have to say, we rarely go out to eat. Maybe a few times a year or when we are on vacation and even not always then. But it is nice to be able to have this option again. The lock down and restrictions did not really bother us much. We like each others company and are mostly interested in activities that are done outside in the country side. Biking, walking, gardening and BBQing.

2021 is the year the Bears put it all together! (2020 is a scrub)

Go Bears!
