20 Years Married to David and unspeakably thankful

All credit to God for bringing us this far together, and we walk forward holding our relationship as a precious gift never to be considered lightly. David and his love for me are treasures to be cherished and nourished daily. 

For our 20th Anniversary dinner, we went for the first time to Smolinsky's Sihlhalde Restaurant in Gattikon, which has a Michelin star, and is only 5 minutes from our house (somehow we overlooked it until now, as it is tucked away at the end of a dead end street between cow fields. http://www.smoly.ch/ No more to be overlooked! The perfect place to celebrate something special like this!
Complimentary appetizer: Pulpo (octopus) with a vegetable medley and fresh dill 

D: Scallops with caviar & spinach in a lemon butter sauce
K: Fresh sautéed Entenleber (duck liver or foie gras) with a balsamic reduction and wild figs 

D: Veal with polenta
K: Filet de sole in a saffron sauce with fettucine, spinach and carrots

D: Crêpes Suzette with fresh citrus slices
K: Flourless chocolate cake with garnish of passionfruit, physalis, chocolate arcs, and a tiny meringue

Complimentary final friandises: mini lemon cupcake (so cute), chocolate truffle, walnut cookie, strawberry jam sandwich cookie, and some kind of layer cake

We had lots of fun getting fancied up for this milestone occasion. 21 items held my hair together, one for each year and one to grow on...
