So, Nathan and I aren’t any sort of *real foodies*, but we looooove good food. We’ve never treated ourselves to a fancy 5 Course Meal and we decided that this year we would celebrate Valentines Day and our 16th Anniversary by taking each other out to Corner Table. I *am* the type of person who takes pictures of their food before I eat it, and you are lucky that I have a blog and I’m going to share those pictures with you :)
Our first course¹ was some sort of beet salad:
The second course was gnocchi. It was a-maz-ing…probably my favorite dish of the night:
Now, we’ve made gnocchi before, but our’s has NEVER tasted this good. This gnocchi was so good that I drooled every time another table got served this dish…oh.my.yumminess.
Next was a lamb sausage, polenta, poached egg dish:
The last of the ‘dinner’ courses was lamb neck cannelloni with a mascarpone sauce:
For dessert we enjoyed a chocolate mousse with tart cherries and some sort of caramelized sugar top:
The whole experience was so amazing and I loved, loved, loved it. Like I said, we are by no means “foodies”, but it was fun to eat slowly, enjoying every bite, and celebrating each other.
The next morning we ended our Foodie Anniversary by making one of my all time favorite dishes: Crab Eggs Benedict

¹ Apparently the amuse bouche is not considered the first course. We had no idea about this so we spent most of the dinner confused by what course we were on…We won’t make that rookie mistake again.
