If you ever visit the Jersey Shore,
and are in the Monmouth/Ocean County area...

 visiting Moonstruck Restaurant in Asbury Park is a must!

 With a view of the Asbury Park Boardwalk and Westly Lake,
this is one of my very most favorite restaurants of all time.
The hubs and I went for dinner on Friday night and it did not disappoint.

 The hubs had this pan seared chicken,
with roasted potatoes and a vegetable medley.

 I had pesto pasta, topped with pine nuts, and diced jersey fresh tomatoes.
With extra cheese please, it was divine.

 We sat outside on the porch, with a light breeze and a beautiful view.
And what's that in front of us?? Well, I'm glad you asked...

 The hubs had Blueberry Buckle...

 and I had Black & White Creme Brulee, served warm, this is really good.

 On Friday night's they have live music playing in the bar.
If you look closely at this image, by the exit sign...
you might notice the hubs, doing what he said was a
"photo bomb"!!
I don't think he knows what that is!!

Fresh cut Sunflowers that greet you as you come and go...
This. place. is. awesome.

  8. I think that counts as a photo bomb. unless I don't know what one is, either. Unless the hubs is singing backup!
