The Best Four Years!

 Its crazy to think that Mike and I have been married for four years already. Time truly does fly it feels like yesterday we were beginning our journey together as a couple. For our four year anniversary Mike and I celebrated by eating at a restaurant down town called Co Co Sala. They are well known for their CHOCOLATE.... what more could a girl ask for? We had a lot of fun taking the metro downtown and then walking to the restaurant. We had a difficult time deciding what to order we were too focused on the desserts and realized we needed some nutrition before desert came. My favorite thing about the evening was not being rushed at the resturant. I dis like resturants that want you to come in eat and leave we had such a nice time talking, laughing, and being us. Here is what we ordered:

Appetizer: 
FOUR CHEESE FRITTERS
(gruyère, parmigiano reggiano, roquefort, & cheddar / chipotle chocolate tomato cream sauce)

Main Course: 
CHICKEN SLIDER TRIO (Mike's choice)
(tandoori chicken patties / cardamom carrots & greens /rosemary & parmesan fries) 

BACON MAC & CHEESE  (Erin's choice)
(orechiette / four cheeses / crispy bacon)

Dessert:
‘BASIL & BERRY SHORTCAKE’ (Mike's choice)
(strawberry shortcake / lemon mascarpone cream / basil foam /cocoa nib crunch) 

‘A STICKY SITUATION’ (Erin's choice)
(warm sticky toffee pudding cake / chocolate shavings / brown butter toffee sauce / ginger caramel ice cream) 




 Look how cute our desert is... I was able to eat my whole dessert with out ruining the chocolate writing... Mike was laughing at me. :)

After dinner we walked around downtown for an hour or so. I love Mike he is the best husband any girl could ask for. I love you Mike, thanks for a great four years so far can't wait for the rest of our lives. Love you.

I'm pretty jealous - looks SO delicious!! Tyler and I are coming up on our 4th anniversary this fall and need to think of something exciting to do. The only problem is we were married November 24th - which means we usually spend the day traveling to wherever we are going for Thanksgiving. We may have to do an early anniversary celebration this year and celebrate at the end of the summer by going somewhere fun! I'm thinking we'll come visit you so I can go to that delicious restaurant...YUM!

I still can't believe you had chocolate drizzled over your macaroni and cheese and that it tasted good. : ) So fun that you got to go to a fun place to celebrate!

And what does "Schatze" mean? Is it your new nickname?
