Anniversary Dinner


We celebrated our fourth anniversary with sushi.  What a wise choice!

I had the Sweetheart Roll, of course ;)



It was a lovely combination of tuna, spicy tuna, salmon and avocado with caviar and spicy mayo.  Spicy tuna sashimi on the side.  Divine!

Hubby had shrimp sushi.

And shrimp tempura.  He likes shrimp.

As if that wasn't enough food, we started out with hot, flaky, crispy spring rolls.

And we had this savory delight - strips of sirloin wrapped around cream cheese and scallions, seared in teriyaki sauce.  Out of this world!

We had a blast reminiscing about our wedding and the last four years.  Since we've known each other for 10 years, and three of those dating until engagement, we really are friends.  And, our romantic love and deep love have grown at the same time.  Unlike some who meet and fall 'in-love,' we cared about each other before we started dating.  That deepened our relationship from the beginning, without rushing the fun and beauty of courtship.  Those were a wonderful, exciting three years, but it can't compare to the 4 married years we've shared committed working on a home and a life together.  That's some heavy stuff I never could have dreamed about with anyone else.

Here's to the fifth year, and beyond, my Love.


We call this one "Fred 'n Ginger"

  2. Charlene, congratulations on your anniversary. That sweetheart roll looks yummy! I love sushi, but sashimi especially. Sounds like you and your husband have a solid friendship which is the foundation of a happy marriage, IMO.

    1. Thank you very much, Helena. I love sashimi, too, especially tuna. I can only have tuna, salmon and veggies. I'm allergic to everything else. Yes, it was nice that we were friends first.

  6. The steak, scallions and cheese looks delightful.

    Wonder if there's anywhere near me that does it?

    Congrats, by the way.

    1. it really was amazing. I wish I could remember its name. However, it happened to be exactly behind the coupon we tore out to use. I remember it beginning with an N. I'm guessing that any Japenese steakhouse would know how to make it. I'm thinking of trying to make it at home.

      Thanks for the good wishes!

    1. Thank you so much! That was our first time there and won't be the last! The couple next to us must of ordered the Dragon Roll - as there was a giant dragon head that was carved out of a large carrot. I should have asked to take a photo, but didn't want to intrude. It was some of the prettiest food I've ever eaten, ;)
