Insta-Week #10: In which we celebrate 15 years

Nothing happened for a week while I had the flu. I was pretty much stuck in bed most of the time and even (at times) managed to get some reading done when I was not too busy sleeping. Fortunately, I recovered after a week and we were able to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary, my darling Steve and I. He took me to our favorite restaurant for lunch and we, of course, had a boozy lunch.

So here's my last week in Instagram pictures. I hope you enjoy them.

Bistro Molines view
One of the things which makes eating here special is the view. It looks into a valley of vineyards. Truly spectacular even if it was rather cloudy on the day we were there.


Trimming vines
We even got to watch as some people were working in the vines. They are pruning them for the winter.

Wines
Being a wine guy, Steve picked out some spectacular wines for us to drink with lunch.

1998 Pommery Louise champagne
We started with the champagne, of course. A 1998 Pommery Louise. One of the best champagnes I've had. We only have one bottle left in the cellar.

Canapes and starters
They always spoil is at this restaurant, so we got canapes (on the house) of a tuna pate and fried zucchini flowers stuffed with goats cheese, followed by our starters. Steve had a housemade clam linguine and I had mussells Marinare.

Mains and cheese platter
For mains, I had the linguine and Steve had lamb cutlets. We were given roasted baby leeks and asparagus as a side. I felt very spoiled. For dessert, we went with a cheese platter.

Steve Shipley
And finally, this is the guy who makes it all worthwhile. Thank you for a wonderful 15 years darling. Here's to another 15 more.

That's my week in pictures.
