July 18, 2009

We started our anniversary day together sitting outside and enjoying the birds, flowers and backyard. Then we were off to a brunch at Mimi's Cafe.

Hubby had breakfast.

I opted for a salad. I thought their presentations were very nice and took pics.

The manager brought out this sampler of desserts for us. I was full from the salad and wanted to save room for our dinner later that night so just ate only a few bites.

We did a some shopping and went home for a little rest before going out to dinner.

Hubby had made reservations at Ruth Chris.

If you ever get a chance to go to one of these steak houses, you will not be disappointed! They are expensive but for a special occasion they are worth it and you will love it.
We are privileged to do marketing for both of these restaurants.

I took a pic of the salad, which is just wonderful. It got our of sequence and blogger would not let me move it so I deleted it. Are you guys running into this problem?
The steak is cooked at 1500 degrees and served on a plate with a temperature of 500 degrees. It is still sizzling and cooking when brought to the table.
They have many sides to choose from. We had creamed spinach and Au gratin potatoes.
I thought I had a pic but I guess I didn't.
The dessert they brought us was bread pudding. Very moist and delicious.

They take pics of you, if it's a special occasion and treat you like royalty. Well, I was with my prince after all.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments you left and the well wishes! Only 11 more years till the Golden.

What a great day! That steak looks to die for! I love steak and am most of the time disappointed when ordering it out. But I doubt I would have that problem there! Glad you and hubby enjoyed your special day!

Great dining experiences. We ate at Ruth's Chris one time many years ago. Someone gave us a $50 gift certficate. We had to pay more and we just got the basics. It was delicious though. I'd like to go back again sometime. We like Outback Steak House really well. It is much more affordable. Mimi's is my daughter's favorite.

Happy Anniversary!! That is such a nice picture of the two of you. It sounds like you had a delicious day. I think I gained 5 lbs. just drooling over your pictures. I had to click on your lunch salad to see what all was in there. It looks so good. I think I detect some pistachios in there. I keep hearing about Mimi's Cafe. I am going to have to see if there is one around here.

To answer your recent question about Michigan ~ I grew up in Livonia, moved to Farmington Hills and then Northville before moving south 10 years ago. We are flying this time, but I kinda wish we were driving so I could bring back more of the foods I miss from Michigan like bumpy cake, Sanders hot fudge ... You don't think I have a sweet tooth, do you?
