They Were Worth The Calories!

Last night my husband and I, along with my cousin and hers, went to our favorite restaurant, yes, HaGov, the kosher sports bar & grill, to celebrate forty years of marriage.  We got married in the same week, so we're all married forty years.

And in all those forty years I don't remember ever going out together before to celebrate an anniversary.  When we were dating, we used to double date, and we do try to get together when we can with the kids and lots of mutual friends.  This was a treat in more ways than one.

HaGov's management knew that we were going to be there for a special occasion and treated us royally.  We shared one of the chef's specialties a tomato soup, which was fantastic.  We all loved it, so if it's on the menu when you go, have some.

We shared salad, and I had the Italian Steak with Mushrooms, absolutely delicious.  My cousin had the Double-D Chicken Breasts, and the men ate hamburgers.  We also shared a bottle of wine.  The chef kept coming out to check and accept very well deserved compliments.

They surprised us with desserts, full of calories but worth eating them just the same.

Every once in a while even the most dedicated dieter must go off and have something spectacular, and that's what I did last night.

Beautiful food pics... and mazel tov! Glad you got to do something special.

A 40th anniversary is something I can barely imagine. Because this is a late-in-life marriage, we are only up to 6 years so far. We may get to 40, I suppose, eventually... :-)))

Thanks, Jen, enjoy what G-d gives you!

'Double-D Chicken Breasts'? What, did they get their menu off the Hooter's website?

Food looks yummy though.

Think of it as a dinner restaurant, not a bar. Neighbors of mine just had a big family dinner there, too.
