That's an appetizer of fried green tomatoes with balsamic vinegar drizzled over the top. A speciality and highly recommended! As is, the seafood bisque.
There's an eatery just west of Meadville, Crawford County, in the northwest corner of the state called the Montana Rib & Chop House. Good fare with a few Montana touches such as the map shown below. Janene is pointing to the Bitterroot Valley where your blogger hangs out.
The company's "PA"locations include Meadville, Hermitage, and Canonsburg. Others are out west in Cody, Sheridan, and Cheyenne, Wyoming and of course, Livingston, Billings, and Miles City, Montana.

This is a Holstein. Yes, the familiar black and white cow seen along the back roads of the Keystone State can occasionally throw a red gene. Enthusiasts have taken the idea and created a substantial following and some call the sub-breed, "Red and Whites." More about them later.
And here are Ginger and Clover, enjoying the beautiful and very comfortable new dairy barn on the grounds. Always photogenic, those Jerseys. The diffused lighting from the fabric roof overhead makes for congenial shooting for any photog strolling through the alleys.

We occasionally venture beyond P. A.'s borders to close neighbors, such as the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History, near Jamestown, N. Y. and Lake Chautauqua. The best access for those unfamiliar with the area is off I-86 to 311 Curtis Street. Watch for signs. It's tucked back into the trees and is a bit obscure. Phone for hours and directions. Usually open on Sundays, 1 to 5 pm.
A special exhibit by the Society of Animal Artists is currently on display as well as the works, tools, life and times of one of America's most influential "birders." Well worth the trip if you are in the area or live nearby.
