Dining with friends

One thing we love about living on Cape Cod is being surrounded by excellent dining choices! My husband and I own a Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast and are always looking for unique dining to recommend to our guests. During our high season in the summer we are usually too busy at the inn to dine out much so we always reserve our dining experimentation for the winter months. That actually has turned out to not only be a pleasant way to unwind but also a nice reprieve on our pocket books since many of the restaurants are running off season specials.

This past week we had the pleasure of dining with the some new dear friends at the Ocean House.They are running a winter special that is a tremendous value; for $25 you can order a three course meal that includes generous portions for an appetizer, main course and dessert. I ordered a vegetable spring roll with Chinese cabbage slaw and fresh local cod for my main course. Their specialty is American cuisine with an oriental infusion which always adds a nice twist to everyday dining. I have been on the South Beach Diet and have just reached my goal so I was pleased to have a meal that was flavorful, special yet still healthy.

One of our new year’s resolution was to reach out and be more social this year. We have spent the last five years at the inn doing major renovations which has really consumed our free time. We were pleased when our former innkeeper friends decided to join us and what a pleasant evening we had. They both have similar age grown children and understand what it’s like to be an innkeeper. We had time to catch up on each of our lives, laugh and enjoy good food! What a good life we have on Cape Cod.
