Okay, so I usually don’t write lovey gushy stuff. So I’ll try to refrain from that. But my honey and I celebrated another year together by eating! We started off at his favorite pizza place in Leesburg, Fireworks Pizza. We normally just go straight to the point here. Pizza, and dessert. At the Arlington location, I like to get their appetizers. But today we were so hungry, after a 45 minute wait, we got spinach dip to start.
Then the main event, PIZZA! Smokey Blue with shrimp. There’s bacon, bleu cheese, balsamic glaze, sauteed onions along with rosemary, which just ties everything together. Afterwards, we had the chocolate chip cookie sundae. It didn’t last long enough to take a picture. Picture cookie dough in a shallow ramekin, blasted in a wood fired oven, until its crisp on top and the chocolate is bubbling. Top it off with a cold scoop of vanilla ice cream. Oh MY.
Afterwards we went to paper source to feed my stationary and paper goods addiction. And we found this gem.
I took too long staring at pens, stickers and stamps, so he went and got us starbucks!
Bistro Cacao. I love this place. It’s so french, it makes me miss Paris more, but fills the void.
Lobster bisque with white truffle oil.
Pan seared duck with a blueberry reduction, braised endives and potato gratin
Mousse au chocolat with raspberry and mango sauce.
I love food. And my life. Le sigh.
