My newly-wed sister offered to have our kids over for a sleepover last night so that Jay and I could go out to celebrate our anniversary. The kids had a great time, of course, eating pizza and rootbeer, playing vintage Nintendo, and being doted on my Aunt Lizzie and Uncle Dave.
But I think Jay and I probably had a better evening. We had dinner at Caffe Boa in the Mill Avenue District, at a lovely table on the patio. I sipped Pellegrino with a wedge of lime while we shared Tiger Shrimp sauteed in garlic and butter. Then I ate every bit of my spinach raviolis stuffed with artichokes and topped with a garlic cream sauce, and a delicious marinara, and slices of grilled garlic chicken. Jay enjoyed a melt-in-your mouth filet mignon with roasted potatoes and vegetables. Then we shared a decadent Chocolate Hazelnut Royale. I was about to pop, but every bite was worth it. The service was very good, and the atmosphere was very nice. Give it a try for your next special ocassion.
After our lovely, leisurely dinner, we came home and watched the rest of the game. I almost cried.
