O Happy Day!

This week we celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary!

Philip took this picture of us before we headed out on our anniversary date. Not a very good one (fuzzy) but then, we are getting old.
We went to this upscale Mexican restaurant. That means they don't serve you free chips/salsa 30 seconds after you sit down.
We ordered chips and guacamole for an appetizer. The young man made the guacamole for us at the table, and it was smooth and delicious.
Adam heard about this restaurant from one of his FAVORITE radio shows, "The Splendid Table." They travel the country, looking for little places like this that serve excellent fare. This restaurant qualifies! Also, it used to be a Catholic church, so the interior is spacious and dark. Here's a bad interior pic:
One interesting thing served to us was this delicious butter for our rolls; it's pink! And sure enough, when we savored it on our tongues, it had a faint strawberry flavor - yum.
Adam chose a jumbo shrimp/mango sauce dish which was good, but mine turned out to be better -- more flavorful. It was a boneless chicken breast served on rice/onion/corn, with a truly lovely tomato/pepper cream sauce. It's the sauce that makes the dish. This sauce had a little too much spicy for my particularly delicate palate, but Adam loved it.
