Anniversary Recap

Last Friday we celebrated our 5th anniversary.  I guess we're still considered newlyweds compared to all those other marriages out there, but 5 years is the first mini-milestone.  To celebrate, I made us reservations at Au Petit Salut, a French Restaurant in Holland Village.  I was trying to evoke some Parisian feelings from when we celebrated our 3rd anniversary with a trip to Europe.

First I started with my favorite - french onion soup and Andy had some escargot.

I have a love affair with french onion soup - that stuff is so good.  Cheesy, hot, onion-y.....


For main courses, Andy had the lamb, and I had veal.  I have to admit, I was really disappointed with my entree as the meat was dry and tough.  But, Andy's was really good.  Oh well.



Before they served our dessert, the waiter brought out a surprise for us.  A little molten lava cake and a scoop of chocolate ice cream.  It's funny, they put the candle in the ice cream instead of the cake.


After our surprise dessert, we got our real dessert.  It was called a "8-hour baked apple with ice cream" but honestly it was like an apple crumble with apple sorbet sitting in a bed of apple flavored foam.  I'm pretty sure they didn't bake this thing for 8 hours....


All in all, a fun romantic meal, but I do have to say I was a little disappointed in my entree.  Not sure if I would go back again....

Can't believe 5 years have already flown by! It's just crazy.
