Ben has been wanting to try Houlihan’s for a while so we decided to hit it up before we leave. This is the worst picture of me ever and I don’t know why I’m making it public…
We started with…
Tuscan White Bean Salad goat cheese, tomatoes, balsamic & foccacia crisps
I am usually not predictable with what I order, but you can bet that if I am eating out in Maryland I will order crab cakes! I had to, they’re just so good
JUMBO LUMP CRAB MELT A baked jumbo lump crab cake on grilled sourdough bread with cheddar cheese and tomato, creole remoulade sauce
The crab cake was delicious, but I expected nothing less
Prime steak & wedge salad gorgonzola, polenta croutons, spicy pecans, bacon, grilled
asparagus, roasted golden beets, red onions, buttermilk bleu cheese dressing
After dinner we took a walk and then it was time for cake! Even though our anniversary is today, we had to cut the cake last night because it has been burning a hole in my fridge!
Originally, I was supposed to be out of town this week too. Ben was going to FL and I was going to go to CA. But, when we found out we were moving I canceled my CA ticket and changed it to a one way at the end of this month.
Since he thought we would both be out of town, Ben ordered the cake to be ready Friday.
I’ve had a Chocolate Decadence Cake in my fridge since last Friday. And I didn’t eat it even though I was here by myself all week. Miracles apparently do happen, and that was one of them
I have joked on more than one occasion that the only reason I got married was for guaranteed cake in a year. When I found out they cut our anniversary cake at our wedding I was not a happy bride. But, I’m totally over it since it started a new tradition of Anniversary Cake!
Doing scary stuff (like moving across the country) is so much better when you have someone with you. We have had the craziest year, but it was significantly better because we were together
July: Drove across the country, with a few stops on the way…
November – Family visit for Thanksgiving
And it was all down hill from there.
Okay, not really, but this last year did teach us a lot about what we think is important and how and where we want to live.
Now I’ve gotta cake to attend to
