The Apple Crumble Cookie and Canal Side Inn

by Joanne on June 21, 2009

I decided to send the Pay It Forward winners the signature Apple Crumble Cookie.

There were 4 participants in the give away…not a great response but that allowed me to send all four respondents a special Apple Crumbles treat.  The recipe for my signature cookie can be found at the Apple Crumbles Cookies page.

These are the treats to be shipped tomorrow:

There are 2 round “apple” baskets and 2 rectangular tote baskets.  Each container holds 3 bags of the Apple Crumbles Cookies.

Hope you guys like the special treat and remember, now it’s your turn to “Pay it Forward”.

The Saumon (that's how it was spelled) Grille in a spicy pepper reduction with two jumbo prawns on the side.

The carrots and green beans had a wonderful flavor to them however, there was hardly a sauce or coating detectable.
The Fruits de Mer..not over pasta like our traditional Italian places in Utica. It was served in a rich white cream sauce. Fresh crab meat, shrimp, scallops..a very satisfying meal.

The only criticism Ted had about the meal was that the Fruits de Mer left a lingering taste in his mouth. Brushing, scraping would not remove it.  Oh well – that’s what he gets for enjoying a little  “French twist” with our meal.

We really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food of Canal Side Inn.  The restaurant will most likely pop up again in a future post when we can go with the whole family.
Have a great Sunday.
