Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in mommyhood, adulthood, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Valentine Food Adventures

On Valentine's Day morning, I was greeted with Valentine's roses and Vday card in my car. And normally I don't like flowers, especially on Vday (I never know what do with them/how to take care of them), but this year I loved the roses Irwin gave me. Valentine's Day fell on a Thursday this year, and Irwin asked if I would prefer doing dinner on Thursday night, or Friday night to avoid the crowds. I opted for Friday night, mostly because I don't usually like to go out or do anything during the week, and I do hate the VDay crowd. So Friday night, we had dinner at Le Charm French Bistro in SOMA, because I had been obsessed with French food since watching my now favorite move, Julie & Julia. We were starving by the time we got to the restaurant (which was about an hour earlier than our reservation time), but luckily they were nice enough to seat us since it was pretty bare when we got there. We both opted for the Prix Fixe menu. 

This is what I ordered: 
Endive Salad with Radichhio 
Pan Seared Loch Duart Salmon 
Tahitian Vanilla Creme Brulee 

Irwin ordered: 
Onion Soup Gratinee 
Coq Au Vin 
Tarte Tatin 

Overall, the food was.. okay. I was expecting the flavors to be very rich and buttery, but they were just okay. My favorite was the salad and Irwin's Onion soup, and of course the desserts were delicious. But we agreed that French food was not on the top of our list of favorite foods. The following day, I decided to treat Irwin to a VDay meal as well.. to Boiling Crab in San Jose. We are probably the only couple on earth who have not eaten there, so we were pretty excited. The wait was long (about an hour), but the food was worth it. We ordered King Crab legs, 2 lbs of shrimp, some sweet potato fries, sausage, and corn. We ordered everything with "The Whole Sha-bang" seasoning.. it was SOOO good!! I can't get over how delicious everything was. Afterward, we were so full, but we decided to get a Mint Mojito from Philz for the drive back home. It was a perfect Saturday, and a great VDay weekend.
