12 year anniverseary

Wow! somehow through the fire and brimstone we have made it to 12 years of marriage! 4 kids, 2 dogs and a cat! As your wedding anniversaries march on, it gets harder and harder to impress-the wife since I used up all the easy stuff already! We agreed no gifts so I couldn’t use gods gift to men, the Pandora Bracelet. When-in doubt just add a charm to it and shes happy!  Anyway, So I set out on an Internet searching frenzy to find that magical restaurant, finally settling on a a place called Suzannes, which is located on 414 just south of Lodi, NY on the east side of Seneca Lake. The restaurant is basically the downstairs of the the owners house, tastefully decorated in early period decor. We sat in the fireplace room next to the large windows with a beautiful view of Seneca lake. I knew I had scored huge when the menus came customized with our names and wedding date!! (I took full credit for that even-though I had no idea that was going to happen!) It got even better when the appetizer featured heirloom tomatoes from the garden out back! I had  maybe the best filet  I have ever had and my wife had leeks in  puff pastry with a marina sauce (who knew leeks could taste that good!) We both enjoyed 2 great glasses of wine. I had Shalestones red blend with was phenomenal! My only disappointment is that I cant get any for the store, they only sell from the winery. My wife had an old friend, Hermann Weimer Chardonnay. I had forgotten just how good this chard is, delicious fruit with just a touch of oak, way better then many Chardonnays I have tried from California. This was easily the best meal we have ever had, perfect from the beginning right down to the unique deserts. Most of the ingredients come from local farms, many of them organic. I cant recommend Suzanna’s enough, its not cheap but the quality and atmosphere are exceptional, we will be making a return trip in the fall, supposed to be stunningly beautiful with the changing foliage. (Screwed myself through cuz I don’t know how I’m going to out do this for next years anni!) lol
