The celebration continued….

Two years ago we went to Southern Italy on our honeymoon. As you travelers out there know….Sundays in Italy are literally lazy Sundays. Most places don’t open at all and some do, but only half day. It didn’t take us long to figure out that we would be heading to the mall on Sunday because that was the only place open for business!

It ended up being pretty amazing. There was a heineken bar/panini shop where some older Italian men were watching football and drinking beer and so we proceeded to do as the Romans do and joined them! The shop had hotdog & french fry paninis!! Don’t get me wrong….I’m no stranger to hot dog sandwiches. I grew up eating them and LOVE them. However the added goodness of fries in them intrigued us both so we ordered them. They were so tasty!! we couldn’t believe it! I’ve made them once since we got back and yesterday, in honor of our anniversary, I made them again, but with a twist! I added a little truffle oil to the fries and used sourdough bread. And for our greens….chilled green beans with feta cheese, black pepper, salt and lime!! Amazing!

We also enjoyed some Moretti beers and managed to find an Italian game to entertain us while we ate. It was a lovely anniversary lunch!

To continue our celebration we went to Morton’s Steakhouse. We just recently found out that Morton’s has a power hour! What is this might you ask? well it’s happy hour from 4:30-6:30 as well as 9pm-close!!! And it just so happens that our location has food on their happy hour menu as well as drinks. It sounded so appetizing that we decided to go for a late night snack/drink.

We got the iceberg wedge salad (not pictured), the mini prime cheeseburgers, the chicken tenders and the filet mignon sandwiches. Oh they were good! And they make the best dirty martinis (or mortinis as they call them)! We had so much fun! My absolute favorite were the sliders….maybe it’s because they added bacon. Bacon makes everything better!

It’s been 2 years!

Today is our 2 year wedding anniversary!! I can’t even believe it!! I think we still find ourselves saying we just got married.  On our trip last weekend all the sales guys kept calling us honeymooners and one even went as far as saying that it was because I still looked happy.  So I guess that’s a good sign right? And I am! It’s been hard, but it’s been super fun and I’m looking forward to the years to come.

Here’s a little video N made when we were in Southern Italy for our honeymoon. ENJOY!!
