Surviving Winter with Dinner and the Symphony

You are looking at one of the very best s'mores, ever!  A homemade marshmallow topped light custard last night at Margaux, one of our favorite restaurants here in the Sheboygan/Kohler area.  And one of the best parts was that dinner was almost free thanks to a gift certificate from my daughter and son-in-law, Becky and James Reinhold.  We also enjoyed soup, salad, and two delightful entrees, a baked salmon in leek wrapping over a coconut flavored risotto, and the Margaux steak with pommes frites.  Margaux serves both full and half portions, which are ideal for us.  Our dining experience was superb!
Then all we had to do was walk across the street to the beautiful Stephanie Weill Center for a luscious performance by the Sheboygan Symphony.  Last night they featured Dr. Li-shan Hung on the piano for Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 5 "Emperor",  and the full orchestra with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4.  For a small city, we are continually amazed at the quality performances.
Now this is certainly a great way to spend a winter evening!

Your evening out sounds enjoyable. I like restaurants who will let you order halves for those of us who like smaller portion. The music would have been so enjoyable. Have a great day. A Missouri Friend.
