Bonne Anniversaire

Well, yesterday was our anniversary.

It's hard to believe that it has already been 6 years together.

So, I'm sure you want to hear about what we did to celebrate.

Maybe I won't tell y'all.

Ok, I will.

We actually got a bit of luck in deciding where we would go out to dinner. Because Darin's boss had given us a $60 gift card, we were able to have a really great meal together at a place in Prairieville, LA, called The Little Village.

Here is the top of their flier:

That's right.

They've got Big Balls.

Meat balls, folks.

Get those minds out of the gutter!

First, we had a few starters: Seafood Arancine (fried rice ball with crab and shrimp and covered in marinara and cheese - YUM!), Crab Two-ways (crabcake and crab au grautin over a crab ravioli) and their Village bread (sesame bread fresh out of the oven with olive oil, basil, garlic and romano cheese - This is to DIE for).

For entrees we kept it simple with eggplant parmigiana and veal parmigiana. But, the highlight there were the meatballs I added. OMG they melted like butter in your mouth. (Am I making y'all hungry yet?)

Lastly, just when we were full, our waiter brought us a special dessert for our anniversary (yes, on the house ... wasn't he sweet??). He brought us this AMAZING frangelico (hazelnut liqueur) mousse.

So, all in all, it was a fantastic way to celebrate our anniversary.

Next, we're taking Darin's parents there for their 59th anniversary next month.

And maybe my birthday in April.

If you're in the Baton Rouge area, plan on going there as soon as you can! And ask for John, he's a hoot!
