March Date Night

Hubby and I got to go on a date last night. We enjoyed the nice weather and ran some errands before getting a bite to eat. It was warm enough to sit outside, and it was a very pleasant evening.

The meal started with some warm rosemary focaccia bread with basil oil. I refrained from the oil as my gallstones have been acting up lately, but hubby enjoyed the oil, and the bread was excellent.

We also treated ourselves to a glass of Prosecco.

Hubby got an arugula salad with shaved Parmesan and fennel. It was delicious. I have to use fennel more often at home… Fennel is one of the vegetables I used to seriously dislike when I was younger, but now I love it. However, for some reason I never buy it…

For his main course, hubby ordered garlic spaghetti and chicken cacciatora. I loved the “garlickyness” of the pasta.

And I ordered a salad with grilled vegetables and salmon. It was very good.

Hubby’s meal also came with dessert: chocolate and amaretti custard with caramel and cream. I made hubby share it with me. Hubby happily let me eat about 70% of his dessert. I know, he is great! :-) I’m usually not a dessert person, but this dessert was amazing!

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? Date night was great, but we also had lots of fun at the garden park today. Photos to come tomorrow…

Be well,
