Roxy’s Birthday Dinner at Elizabeth’s Café and Winery in Duck, North Carolina

While things have been hectic here in the Roxiticus Valley, New Jersey, since we drove home from our long weekend in Duck, North Carolina, I wanted to give you some of the highlights of our trip. I'll start by saying that Rex, London, Maddie and I enjoyed all of our three very different dinners in the Outer Banks. On Thursday night, we went to the Blue Point. We went a bit more casual on Friday night with four dozen steamed clams for my Jedi clam-eaters at the Sunset Grille, another two dozen steamed "middlenecks" for me, and five different appetizers for Rex and me to share. Finally, in honor of my birthday, we planned and enjoyed the most elegant evening of our trip at Elizabeth's Café and Winery.

On Friday morning, when we were at the Scarborough Faire for sticky buns at Tullio's Bakery, we picked up a sample menu from Elizabeth's, so we had the perfect birthday dinner for four planned out by the time we arrived for our 6:30pm seating. Since I started my back-to-school fitness program a little over a month ago, I have not only lost weight but have experienced the incredible shrinking appetite. I've also found in the past year or two that I enjoy little tapas-style tastings of many dishes, so we called ahead to assure that I could nibble on a couple of perfect appetizers while Rex went all out (and shared with me) the Six Course Wine Dinner ($125/person including wine, $90/person without wine).
