19 years and counting...

Earlier this month my husband and I celebrated our 19 year anniversary of being a couple. Yes, we do still celebrate it even though we are now married. It gives us a good excuse to get dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant which is usually what we do in lieu of giving each other gifts.
Anyway, this year was a bit different since I was recovering from surgery, we couldn't go out. So, with a bit of "help" from the grocery store deli, my husband was able to pull together a delicious meal. I don't know if I've mentioned that he's not much a cook and by "much of a cook", I mean not at all. *lol*



My daughter helped me set the table. :)


The appetizers



Lamb's Lettuce salad with Duck G├ęsiers and vinaigrette


Duck Confit with a gratin dauphinois


For dessert, we had cupcakes that he made with my daughter. I got the cupcake toppers from Kingley's cake and they were made of a thin layer of frosting. :)

As usual, the photos don't do it justice, but I had to document it anyway. It was a lovely day and we're looking forward to many more happy years together as a family! :D
