2nd Anniversary

Monday was our anniversary as I mentioned before and we had a great little date night. After my sister arrived to watch the girls, we headed downtown to a wine bar. We each had a glass (wine for me, red for hubby) and great conversation.

We had dinner reservations at Campo (one of our favorite Reno restaurants) sans babies. Whenever we go to a date night dinner, we indulge in everything. We have the time (no screaming babies around) and a huge appetite. We started off with wood fired cauliflower and a fritto misto plate. Sorry no pictures, but it was really good.

Then we moved onto our entrees. I got the special rigatoni of the day (hearty bolognese) and my husband got the black and white spaghetti (chorizo, prawns, peppers, bread crumbs on regular and squid ink spaghetti). All pasta is homemade and you can definitely tell that it is. So good.

It was a lot of food, but we managed to finish it all. Plus a bottle of wine.

Then it was time for dessert because you must have dessert on your anniversary. My husband opted for gelato and I got my favorite dessert of ALL TIME. Carmel Budino. Best thing ever. I could eat this everyday for the rest of my life. It is that good.
Chocolate waffer cookie, salted caramel, vanilla pudding and whipped cream. HEAVEN!
Not a very good picture of me, but I was happy to have this dessert and an evening out with my husband

We were so stuffed from dinner that we headed home to catch up with my sister (well I did, hubby slept on the couch while we caught up) and watch a little Bachelor in Paradise. My how times have changed. Last year we were in San Francisco for our anniversary. I may have been pregnant with twins but we ran all over that city.

Here is to another 50 plus years with my babe! Love you Mr. Butler.

  1. That sounds like the perfect anniversary dinner. Nothing better than a meal without having to corral children. Ha ha
