Ooo la la! The Anniversary Dinner

Hubby and I went out to dinner on Wednesday for our 20th Anniversary and I have to say it was one of the best meals I have ever had.

We started off with a drink and while I don't usually drink, because I had tasted a wine in Cape May, NJ that did not leave me with a pounding headache (a Riesling wine), I asked if they had it at this restaurant and they did. The waiter informed me it is a lower alcohol content wine. It is delish and I didn't get a headache.... whahoooooo!




We then ordered their table side prepared Cesaer salad for two.....



Then, my husband ordered the broiled scallops.......



I ordered the lump crab meat crepe with buttered lobster on top of steamed veggies and then I ordered a side of sauteed baby spinach because I didn't know my dinner came with a vegetable and I ALWAYS have to have a vegetable with my dinner.  Oh my, the crepe was as light as air and the crab and lobster out of this world!!



THEN, just when we didn't think we were stuffed enough, we ordered dessert. It was our anniversary so we HAD to have dessert.  I ordered the banana spring rolls with brown butter ice cream. The "bowl" that housed the ice cream was made out of crystalized sugar!!










And, finally, my husband got the creme brulee. Little did I know that when the waiter had earlier in the meal asked us if we were celebrating anything special, that he would be presenting us with this lucious finale.....



Yes, I can still taste this dinner - what a sweet, sweet way to celebrate 20 years together....

How yummy! I bet your husband didn't even blink an eye as you were taking photos of all the food. They get used to us and our crazy camera obsession. :) Happy Anniversary to you both!
