What’s for dinner?

The Thursday before last was date night with the only man in my life, my Daddy!  For ages (actually since it opened) I have wanted to try out Hickory’s Smokehouse Grill in Newtownards.  I’ve heard recommendations from friend’s who had been, salivated over pictures on their Facebook Page.
