Date Night

Heyyyy 😀 How are you?? Thank you so much for all of the beautiful anniversary wishes. It was a great day 😀 I took the night off blogging to celebrate with this guy….


Swooning allowed… and necessary 😀

He took me to Two Friends for dinner, which was the first restaurant we ate at 3 years ago, when I was forced to live in we moved to Valdosta.

two friends

Celebratory bubbly:


For an appetizer, we shared Portobello mushrooms with goat cheese, scallions and balsamic reduction


(Smoky, salty and satisfying)

and the pilot also enjoyed a flatbread with bacon, bleu cheese and roasted pecans.


For my entree, I rolled with the tilapia with lemon herb vinaigrette and asparagus sans bread crumbs.


It was cooked PERFECTLY. It’s a fine dance between undercooked and too dry when it comes to fish, and the exec cheffer has it nailed. The lemon herb vinaigrette wasn’t the slightest bit oily, either- fresh and aromatic.

The pilot chose tortellini, which had shredded beef, local peaches, chipotle sauce, cheese and jalapenos.


He said it was one of the best things he’s ever eaten.



(we always clinky our forks before feasting)

And then there was this….


Bread pudding with butter bourbon sauce.

I’m pretty sure if you Google “foodgasm”, that’s the first thing to come up 😉
