Happy anniversary to me and Red!

Self-congratulatory, perhaps, but what the heck, eh?

It's 11 years today since we tied the proverbial knot, and we're dining in style, eating at not one but two posh restaurants, greedy pigs that we are.


Well, because we'd initially tried to book in at our favourite local restaurant for dinner: Read's at Faversham. They were fully booked for both lunch and dinner, so we opted for dinner elsewhere. Then we had a short-notice call to say a cancellation for lunch meant a table was now available if we wanted it. By then we'd already booked dinner and didn't really want to cancel.

Lunch was gorgeous, by the way. I had the terrine of confit chicken followed by beef on a potato rosti and spinach in a red-wine sauce. De-fucking-licious. Red had a salad to start and a main course of chicken wrapped in Parma ham, served on a bed of spinach and with a creamy mushroom sauce and a Mr Whippy-style swirl of mashed potato.

Oh, so heavenly. But given that we are dining out tonight, too, neither of us opted for dessert.

Seconds out, round two... [to be continued]

Ah, how sweet. It's nice to see two people who really love each other and managed to find each other in this crazy world. For all us pathetical, sad single folks, you really should offer some pointers. Please?

And what's this? You dare to chow down on such delicious food (including "Mr. Whippy" potatoes....mmmmm) and not share some photos. Pity.

Celebratory eating is the best!

Great descriptions, but no photos? You must have been too busy staring adoringly into Red's eyes!

Congrats to you both
