Would you like to come to our Valentine's Day dinner?

Rather than fight the masses of humanity at a restaurant in Chicago last night, I decided to cook a delicious meal for my husband. I sent him to the casino for the day (you can give me my wife of the year award any time now) so that I could cook and clean, and then when he got home, the table looked like this!

Since we're newleyweds we (ok, by "we" I mostly mean "I") still love to bust out our china and crystal, and I take every opportunity to do so! :) The menu included Filet Mignon with a Cognac Sauce, Cauliflower with Lemon Mustard Butter glaze, and Herbed Roasted Potatoes. We ended our meal with a delicious Mixed Berry Cobbler. Aren't those roses beautiful?

After dinner, we exchanged gifts and guess what I got! A PINK I-POD!!! The best part? Its super technical, compared to my last one (which I lost). You can twist it around and the picture moves so you can still see the screen, it's got really cool games, and I can download and watch tv shows or movies! Very excited.

Anyway, it was a lovely evening, and just reminds me again about how lucky we are in so many ways. :)
