It’s a significant day. I mean yeah, it’s once-in-a-century pi day, but it’s also the day Nellie and I are celebrating a big milestone: this past Wednesday was the 20th anniversary of the day Nellie and I met.
We both had (separate) late nights last night, so tonight we took it easy and Nellie cooked a fancy meal. Usually she does this on Valentine’s day, but a month ago today we were packing for New Orleans. This anniversary filled in nicely though. This is what she made:
- Dark chocolate from Nadège
- Jumbo scallops with corn & arugula (w/ Benjamin Bridge 2011 sparkling rosé)
- Magret de canard (w/ Pearl Morissette 2010 Cab Franc)
- Filet Mignon with green beans (still with the PM cab franc)
- Apple pie (obviously)
