Jen and I headed to Surf in the heart of Nashua.
We sat outside because it was such a nice night! I had what else but a Malbec.
Cheers! To old friends and being back in my home state! Live free or die! (State motto of NH for those that don't know).
Jen had some kind of tropical martini that ended up getting a little bit diluted with water after she discovered it was really strong!
We opted to split a side salad to start, which was graciously split for us before being brought out. Love that!
For entrees we chose to split the Shrimp Vindaloo: Shrimp Vindaloo: Shrimp sautéed with garlic, ginger, scallions, house curry, coconut milk, onions, peppers and tomatoes; served with jasmine rice
It was great- a little spicy and I loved the complex flavors. The shrimp was tender and I love me some Jasmine rice. Delicious.
We also split a swordfish special. It was served with mashed potatoes, carmelized pearl onions, and yellow beans.
I think the consensus between us was that this was actually our favorite of the two dishes. I don't eat swordfish that often, but it's just so good when i do. I love the firm texture and it's great with mashed potatoes, almost like a steak. I was happy to enjoy it while I can, as I'm hoping to get pregnant again soon, and swordfish is on the no-no list.
It was a great night out with lots of conversation. I'd say Jen is probably my friend I have the best, most interesting, deep conversations with. I think it's partly because we've known each other all our lives and have an established comfort level. She's one of those friends that I know I can say something to and she's not going to take it the wrong way and will still love me unconditionally. She's basically the sister I always wanted. :) Even with the distance and the time we spend apart, I always feel like we pick back up again and it's always still the same friendship.
