Happy Anniversary to me (and Dan)!

Happy 13th Anniversary to me (and Dan)!

We celebrated by going out to dinner at Mozelle's on Saturday night.  It was deeeeeeee-licious.

We've been there a couple of times before and it was just as wonderful as I remembered.  We started with an order of fried pickles.  I love fried pickles.  But I prefer them to be pickle chips instead of pickle spears.  I will never order fried pickles if they are going to be spears because the pickle to batter ratio isn't correct and the taste is sub-par.

Mozelle's does something different with their fried pickles.  They take the pickles and slice them longways on a mandolin so the pickles are very fine.  The pickle to batter ratio was perfect and the batter was a little spicy and the dipping sauce had a little kick as well.

I really wish I had a big dish of them right now.  Pickles for breakfast isn't weird is it?

For my entree, I chose the bacon wrapped meatloaf. It was topped with melted Havarti cheese and tomato marmalade.  It came with grits and collards and y'all,  I could not have been more pleased.  

I wasn't able to eat everything so I will be having leftovers for lunch. (That pleases me too!)

Dan got the fried chicken and macaroni and cheese.  He said his was delicious too.

After dinner we walked around downtown Winston-Salem for a bit and then we headed to Midtown Cafe and Dessertery.  I got a slice of carrot cake and Dan got a slice of iced 5 flavor pound cake.  We brought them home and ate them in front of the TV.

Yes, we're still wild and crazy after all these years!

After Mass on Sunday, we headed to Salem Tavern for lunch.  We met my parents and my brother there.  It was delicious as well.  After that meal we headed home for anniversary cake at my parent's house.

I don't have a picture of Dan and myself from our weekend activities but here's a picture of the kids:

After lunch we went to the pool for a little while and that sums up our anniversary weekend.

I posted the following on Facebook this morning:
Happy 13th Anniversary to my sweet husband Dan! It took me a long time to find him but he was totally worth the wait. I couldn't imagine going through this life without his love, support, and friendship. I am truly blessed.

Happy Anniversary Baby!
