Happy Anniversary to Us!
It was our 3 year wedding anniversary yesterday.
We both took off work and spent the day together. We were finally able to go to the movies! It has been a year...gosh we suck.
Then we went to a fancy dinner at the Comus Inn. Thing is this. We chose this place b/c it isn't a place you take your kids to. It overlooks the mountains and a beautiful valley. Dinner at sunset and then by candle light. And we are not talking cheap. Our dinner ran us $240. So WHY was someone having a party for their 7 year old there last night?? They were loud, and it kinda blew a little of the romance.... So you have to wonder, after you are done eating...was this worth $240? Well we ordered the 3 course menu with a wine pairing for each course. First course, Miso Scallops...there were 3 scallops on the plate with some kinda fancy fried mushrooms, Second Course, Lamb chops w/merlot and pistacio glase and another funky type of mushroom. You would think for the main course you would have 6 lamb chops....I had two. Third course, Pecan Brownie with chocolate glaze and coffee gellato. I can't say that 3 scallops, two lamb chops & a brownie were worth $120. Along with the atomospere of a rich Joan Rivers look alike throwing her 7 year old grand daughter a birthday party. But then the sweet little girl came over to our table to wish us a happy anniversary and to share her birthday cake. I felt a little bad for bad thoughts I had about the table, but then was delivered the bill.... I am sure she would have enjoyed Chuck-E-Cheese a lot more.
Funny thing though, hubby was eating his Lobster with Fois Gras. What is Fois Gras? Well it looked like a cooked portabello, so we both took a taste. Ummm, that shit was NOT mushroom.. when we asked the waitress, she smiled and said "Oh Fois Gras is Seared Duck Liver!" We both made a dash for the ice water and looked like two rednecks in for a fancy shmansy quick din din as we gargled and swooshed the bottled wata!
But aleast the sex was good last night.... sorry for the TMI.
