I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day 🙂
We actually celebrated on the 13th because I had to work the night shift on Valentine’s Day.
How cute is this!He baked me a giant cookie 🙂 Not from scratch but let’s not hold that against him 🙂 It tasted delish!Love the bracelet he got me, but unfortunately it’s wayy too big for my wrist so we are going to have to exchange it.
And then I quickly got ready for a wonderful 5-course meal at a French restaurant called Pamplemousse. The ambiance of the restaurant is very romantic, dark lighting, candles, the booths are very cozy perfect for 2! And you just feel like you are back in France in the 70s. Definitely a romantic restaurant 🙂 Their special meal included:
First Course: A mixed garden greens salad (with some pears and roquefort) – just ok
Second Course: I had the Fettuccini a la Gerges which is pasta in a light creamy sauce with herbs, prosciuto, parmesan and gruyere. It was amazing! Chris had the Feuilleté of Wild Mushrooms was was like a puff pastry with a delicious mushroom sauce. (his first time trying real truffles) I had a bite and it was pretty magical.
Third Course: Grapefruit Sorbet with champagne – we don’t really like grapefruit so didn’t really enjoy this.
Fourth Course:We both ordered the Tournedos of Prime Beef with Sauce Perigourdine. Cognac demi-Glace, Truffles which Ahhmazing -the meat was cooked to perfection, but it was served with a side of french fries(they weren’t even that great) I just expected a little more for the price and quality restaurant.
Their Raspberry Champagne was spectacular!
So that was my Valentine’s Day! How did you celebrate yours?
