Matt and I celebrate our anniversary every month. It’s silly and fun and a little bit crazy like us. The night before “the big day” we went to The Oyster Bar and consumed 48 oysters and many champagne flutes.
The day of, to keep with the seafood theme, I made shrimp 3 ways. Black bean scallops with butter shrimp and cucumber mint salad.

To the left: shrimp with garlic and butter and crispy sage garnish.
To the right: shrimp with chorizo, tomato, garlic, onion, parsley and cilantro. Lots of fresh lemon squeezed on top.
Poor guy gets no attention.
Matt asked me to be his girlfriend (cute story) on Thanksgiving 2010. Therefore it seemed appropriate to cook the turkey that’s been sitting in the freezer for our 6 month anniversary.
The party started with a friendly game of Wii. Matt rocked Mario World yet somehow his remote became “defective” during our bowling match. Ciders were consumed and a dance party ensued.
The turkey turned out to be one of the best birds I’ve ever eaten.
Check out the cat licking his lips!
What a night!
Big party in the building last night. 12 am and we were bored (surprise, surprise) so went to bed. By 7:30am we were up and ready for a huge walk to the breakwater and around James bay.
