Happy Anniversary!

Today is our 7th year wedding annivesary and we went for a nice dinner at Le Mistral, a highly rated French restaurant. We had initially thought about asking our friends (uncle Colin and auntie Feh Teng) to come over to our place to baby sit Adrien while we went for a romantic dinner for two, after all it's been a while since we have been out on a dinner for two.
The last time we went out on our own without the little one was for lunch during mommy's birthday where we had wonderful seafood and crabs that were to die for.....yummy making my mouth water. That lunch place actually has eat all you can crabs for dinner on Monday. We will try to find a way one day to sneak away without him to chow down on the never ending crab buffet. However at the last minute we decided to bring him along to let him share in our celebration.
Luckily he was a good boy and very well behaved since it was a nice restaurant it could have been embarrasing if he were to shout at the top of his lungs and misbehave, kinda of like Dennis the Menace cartoons. We decided to have an early dinner so daddy made reservations for 5.30pm. Luckily he did as the restaurant was full by dinner time.
For appetizer we had.....

Burgandy snails baked in butter, garlic and parsley

Foie Gras Terrine marinated in sauternes, butter brioche, beet salad (in plain english this is duck liver, even mommy who hates liver loved this dish)

Right after the appetizers our waiter gave us a tour of the kitchen where we saw some of our food being prepared. We were surprised over how clean the kitchen looks.

For main course we each had

Caramelized duck breast, spicy orange sause, apple foie gras cake, asparagus

Special of the day, 6 ounce fillet mignon (delicious...)

and last but not least the dessert

Souffle au chocolat

The dessert actually turned out to be our favourite dessert that we had for dinner every night during our recent 5 day cruise. Now we know the name of the dessert that we sooooooooooo loved during the cruise.
