I don’t usually blog about personal things. However, this weekend was Jordan’s and I’s 1 year wedding anniversary, and I would love to share it with you because it was filled with amazing food!
Something you need to know about Jordan and I: we are foodies.
I mean, we love food. Not just any food, the best of the best in restaurant food. Anytime we are in a new city, we always look for the highest rated restaurants with the most unique and 5 star rated food.
That being said, this weekend we went to Dallas to celebrate our anniversary, and we ate, quite possibly, the best food I have ever eaten. Friday night we ate dinner at The French Room. Oh. My. Word. I started my meal with an heirloom tomato, goat cheese, and olive salad. For my entree I had maple leaf duck, foie gras, bleu cheese tart, and haricot veir. My dessert was beyond amazing. I had a creamy delicious souffle (shown below).
The next morning we ordered coffee and breakfast in bed.
I do love some relaxation added to my morning eggs, english muffin, bacon, and hash browns.
For dinner on Saturday, we dined at another excellent restaurant, FIVE SIXTY owned by Wolfgang Puck. I ordered a chili-pineapple sambal halibut. It was beyond amazing. And although not pictured below, I did in fact, eat a dark chocolate souffle for dessert. Yes, that’s right, 2 souffles in 2 days! And I loved every single bite.
Why am I telling you all of this?
1. Special occasions are for celebrating.
Jordan and I are thrilled to have made it through a great first year of marriage so we celebrated big! And being the foodies we are, celebration meant eating amazing food.
2. It is worth extra money to have an extensively wonderful dining experience.
Paying extra usually means lighter meals with better flavors, fresher ingredients, and properly prepared courses. Not to mention, the restaurant staff makes you feel like royalty.
3. Splurge when it means something.
Because Jordan and I love to pay more for excellent food on special occasions, we eat whatever we want. There is no point of going to a 5 Star Restaurant and trying to eat healthy. Just eat what sounds good and savor every single bite.
In closing, I hope you celebrate occasions and celebrate them big.
Show the people you love how much you cherish them.
Invest in alone time with your spouse.
Go on exciting adventures.
And EAT GREAT FOOD.
