Another victory is that I have an amazing husband that totally gets me, and my obsession/fascination/appreciation for really really good food. He surprised me with dinner at the..... drum roll please.... Salish Lodge! For those of you unfamiliar with the Salish, it is a beautiful northwest lodge that sits just above Snoqualmie Falls, in Snoqualmie, WA and it is very fancy (in the style of "northwest fancy", not like NY fancy). He reserved a window table, and arranged for rose petals, and a rose to be placed at the table upon our arrival. So sweet.
There was a newly engaged couple sitting behind us, and I really wanted to be like "wish you had a window seat, huh? And roses? My hubby is better than your new hubby... " Just to brag about my awesome other half.
So I ordered Snoqualmie wine (so fitting for the occasion, and it also is the wine we had on our first official "date"), and we got the menu:
I ordered the Roasted Beet Salad:
Mark had the Fennel Pollen Dusted Halibut:
The fabulous food, the service, the atmosphere, the sunset, the company, all of it added up to the most special birthday dinner I have ever had.
