Well, even though our anniversary plans weren't turning out the way we had plan them, I'm happy to say this has been a nice anniversary after all. Remember that sore throat I was fighting with garlic and vinegar the other day? Well, it finally turned into a cold. So being a bit sick, I guess our anniversary at home is much better than if we had spent a late night out. After Jon got home from work, we fed Noah and decided to visit our local gourmet market, Papa Joe's for some dinner take-out and then went to the huge Borders next door for a few magazines. It really was fun. Mundane, but fun. Maybe that's what marriage is I guess.
Here is what we chose:
Fresh Mozarella cheese
Roasted and marinated red peppers
All on salted ciabatta bread
The main course....
Roasted onion, fennel and apple
Breaded and stuffed chicken breasts with spinach, gruyere cheese and bachemel sauce
Sparkling peach apple juice from the Sonoma Valley to drink.
Godiva chocolate coffee, mocha java brownie, German chocolate brownie and a tiny chocolate mouse mud pie.
We watched a whole bunch of episodes of "#1 Single" Lisa Loeb's new reality show about her quest for a boyfriend.
My Mom called asking about sweatpants for Noah in the middle of dinner. That was interesting. Oh and by the way, I got Jon a blow torch for our anniversary. Seriously. It's what he wanted, to make brown sugar encrusted grapefruit and creme brulee. Noah and I must have looked really weird at Home Depot buying a blow torch. I also got a really nice plant from Jon, it has two different kinds of pink flowers. We'll post some pictures soon.
Thanks Jon, it was a nice evening.
