More Stuffed than a Thanksgiving Turkey


So Dear hubby took me to Candelight Christmas at Biltmore. After Joe got out of the presentations, we went driving along the Parkway. We didn't see much so we went shopping while we waited for our reservations. We entered the Estate about 4:30 and proceeded to the Deerpark restaurant. We were one of the first tables sat.


We feasted on Baked Brie with praline pecan sauce, Sweetpotate soufle with praline pecan topping and chipotle pepers, Trout Mondine, Prim Rib (we put the praline pecan sauce on this as well!), Turkey with sausage stuffing with Sherried pan gravy. They also had oysters, clams, mussels and peel and eat shrimp. Along with an assortment of salads (I had the Waldorf Salad). They also had Split-pea Soup and Minestrone.

For dessert we had Bananas Foster over Vanilla Ice Cream, Pumkin Cream Pie, Red Velvet Cake, Chocolate Torte, Blueberry Cobbler, Applie tart, and I can't remember if there was anything. Basically all the desserts were yuck except the Flambe station where they created the Bananas Foster. I had to have two servings of that. Hey! I told you I was more stuffed than a Turkey.

Oh.....but it was SOOOOOO Good!!! I think I now need to go to confession for my glutony. ;-)

Afterwards, we went to the car and drove to the house. This year they did MP3 players with headsets for the tour. The house was beautiful and so were the decorations.

I was very excited because they have added new rooms and a new route (on the third and fourth floors) to the tour.

So we had a wonderful night at the Biltmore Estate. I highly recommend it.
