anniversary dinner

steve and i were able to get out to watch a movie and then came home to a gourmet dinner for our anniversary. it seriously was one of the best meals of my life! and i'm not just saying that to say it. everything was perfection. this gal can cook! and we're just lucky enough to be friends with them. thanks bendsay for the babysitting, cooking, and company! ♥

i hesitate showing these pictures because they do not do the food justice. i did learn a lot with how i want to photograph food though. #1 tip to remember: calm down the bokeh. sheesh. anyway, i'm looking into taking a studio lighting class later this month and maybe after i get a few skills, i can convince lindsay and ben for a redo. :)

pork | pumpkin polenta | apple
shrimp ceviche | mango | lime | chipotle
tomato | greens | asparagus | lemon
smoked chicken | blue corn | pepita mole
served tableside...very posh
carbonated grapefruit | melon | mint
look at how cute and fun they are. you can just tell by looking at them that they make a good team.
NY strip | pommes frites | demi glace | arugula
chocolate marquise | croquant
mmmmm....i'm drooling just thinking looking at these pictures again. :)
