Yesterday was the two-year anniversary of Kevin’s and I’s first date. Little did I know that it would be my last first date ever. To celebrate, we went out to dinner at The Ravenous Pig. I decided not to play food blogger for one night so we could enjoy a nice evening together without me stopping him to take photos of his food every two minutes.
You can read about a previous trip to The Pig here. It is definitely one of my favorite restaurants. For those of you who haven’t heard of them, it is owned by a husband and wife duo and they were James Beard finalists.
Our meal was amazing. I started out with their specialty margarita and worked my way through soft pretzels with mustard and cheese fondue sauces, a wild mushroom tart, lobster tortellini and then finished my meal off with bread pudding with Nutella ice cream. I think my body is still processing all that food.
The Ravenous Pig was also celebrating their anniversary, so they gave out glasses of champagne!
As amazing as the meal was, the best part was just knowing that I found such a great person who I am lucky enough to now call my fiancé.
But enough of the mushy stuff. I’m loving this weather that has set in Orlando lately, and I hope it stays. You know you’re in Florida when you get excited that the highs are in the 80s. Humidity is down, and it’s just so nice to be outside.
Kevin and I picked up some festive decorations on our last trip to Publix. I know Kevin loves me because he always makes fun of my wanting to decorate for the seasons, but then came home and created this arrangement himself.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of pumpkin flavored everything. When two of my favorite worlds crash together, you get Jeremiah’s pumpkin pie gelati.
I had heard of this seasonal flavor and was so excited to finally try it. It tasted exactly like pumpkin pie, and it was delicious with vanilla soft serve. I already loved Jeremiah’s, but in the fall, I love it even more. Kevin ordered cherry Italian ice on this visit.
What is your favorite thing about fall?
