This week I have been part of a team working on a project. Most of my team members came over from our offices in Germany, so tonight we went out for dinner to celebrate a successful visit.
I have been to Cattlemens many times over the years, and almost always with a group of people. I have never eaten there with less than three others.
We started out with some appetizers, including loaded potato skins. We also had some salad before the main course came out. We dished out our own salads and it didn’t look too pretty, so no picture here 🙂
I ordered a filet mignon with a baked potato. I really enjoyed the baked potato. I have high expectations for a steak since I grew up in the middle of cattle country and also lived in another area where it is easy to get a good quality steak.
The steak was good, but was definitely not up to my expectations. I expected a steak that was tenderer and had more flavor. However, I should have known based on past experience that I wouldn’t get what I expect in a steak. It is very rare if I get a steak in California that meets my expectations.
I ended the meal with my favorite dessert. Simply two scoops of vanilla Ice Cream.
We did have a great evening sharing a meal. The atmosphere was also very nice.
It was nice to share a meal together as most of us will be traveling tomorrow, but in different directions. I go west and they go east.
