Dinner Out!

While everyone else in town was at the Camas HS football game Friday night, Omid & I joined his parents for dinner at the new Oliver's restaurant (located in the Camas Hotel). I am so glad we decided to stay in town vs heading into Portland. Everything we ordered was excellent! Say Cheese!

Fari & Mansour

This was hilarious. We were waiting for our appetizers to arrive when each of us received this teeny-tiny deviled quail egg. We all burst out laughing. Apparently, this is a "palate cleanser." I think the next time I have to bring an hor d'oerve to a potluck, I should definitely bring these. Such a cute twist to deviled eggs. :)

Cheese & olive plate.

3 types of bruschetta. Steak & mushroom, pesto/mozzarella/tomato, & crab/arugula. The crab/arugula was the favorie of both Omid and I.

This is a GREAT merlot. I had read an article about the winemakers (both former Cougs!!) in the alumni magazine & thought we should give it a try. I am so glad we did. It's my new favorite!

My dinner. So good!

For dessert, a blue cheese cheesecake with pear-apple compote.

Wow. So good. Slightly sweet & salty. I plan to try and find a recipe to make this at home. This was even better than my steak.

Omid had mini pots du creme. Not my favorite as I am not a fan of chocolate, but Omid pronounced them "delicious."

Go to Oliver's for brunch, lunch or dinner! You won't be disappointed!!
