Happy Valentine's Day sweet people..
Hope you have had a lovely day..
The picture above was our last year's dinner..
We stayed home and I was the chef.. smile..
You can read about it HERE.
It was named... OLD LOVE...
Sometimes we stay home and sometimes we go out..
Today, we went out for dinner..
It was a cold day here in Maritime Canada..
I had planned on having my Mom and Step-Father but when I talked to Mom she preferred to go out and try out a new restaurant they had heard about..
That is what we did..
And I am so glad ..
We were served a nice pot of tea right at the beginning..
Loose black tea....
I love having a cuppa while we are waiting for the food..
There was so much choice that it took us a bit to figure out what we all wanted.. smile..
I had made hearts from some of the leftover felt from my bed runner and since we did not have Mom here I took them with me..
And made everyone put one on.. smile..
As you can see... Terry was so proud of his.. grin..
Julia Child had a Valentine party once and made hearts for everyone to wear.. Big ones.. grin..
These were very plain but still we were celebrating !!
They have a huge selection here at An's...
We chose Italian.. (of course) ...
The portions were very large and delicious..
Terry has a Mushroom Lasagne and I had a Shrimp Pasta..
They were served with Butter Bread...
And these wonderful pickles..
Korean ones, I believe..
They have a selection of all types of food but Korean is probably what they serve the most..
Next time.. perhaps...
The dear girl bought me another pot of hot tea..
As you can see we really enjoyed it..
Mom said it was the best cup of tea that she has had since she left home..
That was not yesterday.. smile..
This was our server and she was lovely and was so patient with us..
My Step-Father was a good sport but this was not really what he generally likes to eat..
Terry and I thought it would be a Diner sort of place because that is the kind they like..
What a lovely surprise for me..
This Cafe was exactly the kind of place that I love..
Terry likes a more plain type of food but if you love the experience as much as the food then you would love it..
This is An ...
She owns the Restaurant and is so sweet ..
She brought me the second pot of tea..
Then we had a couple of cookies..
Sugar and Tiger..
And the waitress heard Mom coughing and brought her a cough drop.. So kind..
All in all it was a fun meal..
We enjoyed having Valentine's dinner with my Mom...
She has not been too well lately and we feel so blessed to still have her with us..
And of course, I am thankful for my dear husband..
God has so blessed us with 45 Valentine's Days together..
Kind of scary, eh?
Just praying that we have many more...
And the sweet man knows that I would rather have this..
Then a bouquet of roses..
Weird, aren't I? smile..
So blessed to be loved by this man still after all these years..
And that was Valentine's Day at the Blessed Hearth..
We are to have another huge blizzard tomorrow..
When we were in Moncton today we were wondering where on earth they will put another huge bunch of snow..
My what a Winter !!..
Praying everyone will be safe on the roads tomorrow if they have to be on them..
Thank you so much for dropping by and may God bless and keep you..
