My 10th anniversary dinner that I had dreamed of came true!
I dreamed of having a dinner party that I would do myself!
We got delicious fish from the la pointe fish store in
the byward market, I made salmon as I always have
but this salmon was exceptional, I think because it was cut from the
side of salmon that day! It was so delious and nourishing!
I made a vegan, GF chocoate raspberry cake and
got vegan sorbetto in grapefruit, lemon and raspberry.
I had two teas for the event, a decaf black and
a chocolate roiboos.
I was up by 5 AM and had the cake done by 7.
my friend Mary lent me her cake pans, measuring spoons...
Les Suites came through with beautiful English dishes, a table
and baking pans for the fish.
The beautiful cream roses (I just loved them!) I bought at
the Byward Market that very afternoon...
If you are new to my blog, I lived in Ottawa Canada for
7 years before my wedding to my Husband at my
lovely Ottawa church.
We returned for our 10th wedding anniversary.....
All of my friends there at this meal had been at
our wedding and three of them had been at our first
ever dinner party, the first night that my Husbnad and I met
in person when we were dating.
We talked literature, theology, history,
it was our own 'salon' as my Husband said.
A really enjoyable meeting of like minds over
a lovely meal.
I was so touched by everyone's joy and how they sang
'God grant you many years' at the end.
Everyone had a wonderful time and it was a really happy day.
In fact, everything I could have hoped for.
I pray that my Husband and I have MANY MORE years
together and that God blesses our marriage
and life together!
