Dinner With Dad
To celebrate Father’s Day, my family (minus my little brother who’s away for an internship) went out to dinner. My dad chose Milagro Modern Mexican, a relatively new restaurant near our home in Webster Groves. Milagro has all of your traditional Mexican favorites but also serves more upscale twists like duck tostaditas, salmon grilled in a banana leaf, and mushroom enchiladas.
The last time I ate at Milagro was with my parents on Mardi Gras. Remember that? I don’t. But my friend Jillian just posted a picture of me from that day. I’m eating an apple in a bar.
Anyway. Back to last night. We were brought chips and salsa to start and my dad ordered some guacamole.
I tried to resist, but once I got started on the chips there was no stopping me! I had my fair share and split my bites between the salsa and the guac. The guac was homemade with chunks of vegetables and was SO delicious!
For my entrée I ordered the Shrimp Diablo Salad.
It was perfect! The shrimp were slightly spicy, the pineapple added a wonderful sweetness, and the vinaigrette was fresh and light. Just the type of meal I needed after a big appetizer of chips.
The highlight of the meal? The tiny spoon that came with my brother’s tacos. I forced him to pose in about 10 different positions to try to capture how little and cute this spoon was and he wasn’t really thrilled…
My mom wouldn’t let me steal the spoon. No fun.
Everyone really enjoyed their dinners and it was great to spend some time with the family and celebrate my Dad. He’s an alright guy;) Happy Father’s Day Dad!!
