Never mind the cotton. How 'bout a BIG expensive dinner!

Monday marked the 2nd anniversary of the day Mrs. Mosley and I got married. Instead of exchanging gifts as we did last year, we decided to treat ourselves to dinner at one of the nicer restaurants in town: Bistro Aix.

Although they did have it one the menu, I did not indulge in their Chicken Caesar salad on this particular occasion. However, being that it was reasonably priced I will probably return there one afternoon to sample it for a review.

Instead, we shared an appetizer of shredded fried fish with a creamy garlic dip for starters. We also shared a "Chocola-tini", which is composed of "Van Gough vanilla vodka, Godiva white chocolate liqueur, & cream de cacao". Very tasty.

Then for entrees she had the Grilled Tuna with whipped potatoes, baby spinach, lemon-garlic butter & chive oil, and I had the Fettuccini Alfredo with baby spinach, prosciutto & shitake mushrooms and shrimp. The dishes came quick and we made quicker work of them.

We topped all this off with a shared warm chocolate Belgian Cake with chocolate sauce & sweet cream (as well as a coffee for myself). The check, which came to us in a cardboard sleeve with "The Damage" printed on it, came to $88 with tip, which was cheaper than I imagined.

Afterwards, we came back home to settle in and watch Mansfield Park from Blockbuster, which was very good and perfect for the occasion (review to follow soon).

It was a lovely dinner and a lovely evening overall. Happy Anniversary, sweetheart.
