day 276 – At Canyon

After a delicious day of spa/massages with my college bound daughters, we headed out to Canyon Restaurant in Anaheim Hills for the Lunch Tasting Menu.

Watermelon, Mint, Feta and Balsamic Appetizer

We didn’t want sausage or swordfish with our entrees so they were nice enough to serve us plenty and make our dishes’ vegetables star on the plate.  Don’t be shy to ask for a special request.  Most places are happy to oblige and if not, nothing lost by inquiring.

Heirloom Tomato Risotto with grilled japanese eggplant, pesto and pine nuts.

The meal sang with flavor and melted in your mouth.  The texture and taste was a gourmet delicacy.

Farmer’s Market Ratatouille under griddle goat cheese polenta.

I love evenly chopped up roasted summer veggies and who can resist the crunchy crust outside and the soft creamy middle of a cheesy corn cake?

One daughter had the cheeseburger with bacon and fries.  So there’s something for everyone here.

Dessert:Weiser Farm’s Nectarine and Plum Bread Pudding with nectarine ice cream and pecans.

The finale came with Whiskey Caramel sauce but I declined the extra sugary liquid.  I tried to get a picture of the dessert my daughters were sharing with the sauce around it but they attacked and demolished their treat before I knew it and it was too late.  Nonetheless, my sweet delight was moist enough and full of subdued flavor.  The bread pudding square was warm.  The ice cream softened and melded with it well and my absolute favorite addition to everything -crunchy pecans  – lovely!!

I will miss my princesses. Here’s to our Spa Mother/Daughter Lunch Day!
