Back to work after a wonderful weekend that filled my heart with happiness. (A little sappy, I know.) But seriously, I am just so in love with T and every day is perfect when we're together. This weekend was wonderful and not having to work yesterday (Presidents' Day) made it even better.
So let's review Valentine's Day weekend 2010:
(I must warn you that this is kind of a long post and there are quite a few pictures; so if you're not up to reading about how I engulfed myself with food this weekend, you might want to move along.)
Friday night: T made a delicious dinner for us with his grill. He's been talking about grilling pizzas for awhile and Friday night we had them. Have you tried doing that before? If not, it's easy and healthy and delicious! It's just Boboli pizza dough with sauce of your choice, cheese, fresh veggies. Then you put them on the grill and after they have grilled for a little bit, you stick them in the oven to broil. Delicious!
Yummo! Then we drank a bottle of my favorite wine from a local vineyard and watched Couples Retreat. It was a decent movie but nothing to write home about. It did make me want to go on a tropical vacation, though.
Saturday: T made a delicious breakfast of fresh omelets with the leftover veggies and toast with my favorite, red raspberry jam. We went to Target and I picked up a fabulous deal: A king size comforter with bed skirt and shams for just $22!! It was 75% off and if you need any bedding, I suggest you hit up your local Target because all of the Targets around me are having the same clearance sale on bedding. I also got sheets for $15 that were originally $80. I love a good deal!
After shopping and exercising it was time for Valentine's Day dinner at T's favorite restaurant about 40 minutes away. It's an authentic Scottish restaurant and the wait staff wears the kilts and knee socks and the whole get-up. There is a fireplace and it's warm and cozy and you can see the chefs in the kitchen working away. We had an amazing dinner.
Here's a glance at our menu:
To drink: Champagne with Three Olives Grape Vodka. Yum.
Warm homemade bread and scones. (The bread came with amazing garlic butter spread.)
T had the "Lazy Man Surf and Turf" which was out of this world. I had quite a bit of his lobster and really treated myself to that delicious butter the meat was soaking in. I had sea bass with a dill sauce that was presented in some kind of parchment paper and SO good! The white flaky fish just melted in my mouth. Both of our meals came with a delicious salad, asparagus, and red skinned garlic mashed potatoes.
We chose some kind of chocolate/peanut butter heaven for dessert. It was quite delicious. I'm actually wishing I had some of that bread right now. (I was bummed I didn't bring my camera to dinner so here are some photos after we got back.)
