Instead of going out to a fancy restaurant and paying twice as much as any other night (see yesterday's post about people profiting off of Valentine's Day), Alex surprised me with a five course meal:
- Asian Avocado
- Saltimbocca of Zucchini (play off of Veal Saltimbocca)
- Parmesan Puffs
- Filet Mignon with a Balsamic Glaze
- Accompanied by red wine (thank you Charles Shaw)
Now that I have preserved this memory in blog form since I did not have a camera to capture the moment, and now that I have sufficiently embarrassed Alex by revealing his romantic side, I will lay off the lovey-dovey posts for a few months.
