Date night!

Last night, the husband and I had a night out. Alone. Without kids. And while that might seem pretty ho-hum to you, it was really freakin' great for us. Because the last time we had a date night was in February 2005 and I was 7.5 months pregnant with the Loaf. So you see, we were due. Loooonng due.

We had reservations at Origin, a fabulous French Thai restaurant.

After settling into our very cozy corner table for two and cracking open a bottle of most-excellent Rawson's Retreat Chardonnay, we enjoyed two amazing hours of great conversation, laughs, flirting and of course, gorgeously prepared and luscious tasting food.

We started with the Shrimp and Crabmeat Spring Rolls. I followed that up with the Phuket Jumbo Shrimp (prepared with literally a mountain of garlic on top - yum!) and Mark had wild boar! It was spicy, but pretty tasty. We polished off the wine and ordered dessert - creme burlee for me and something called a caramel banana purse for the man, which he had to confirm with the waiter is actually prounced "purse" and not "pur-say" or something.

After that we walked around town for a bit and then joined some friends for a drink at another restaurant. All in all, it was a really great evening! I'd forgotten what it was like to eat a hot meal, all the way through without getting up to fetch someone milk, or telling someone to sit down and eat.
