Valentine’s Day 2013

Posted on the 17 February 2013 by Thesecretlifeofjen

Just too beautiful for words.  Mr. J surprised me with these beautiful pink roses during the week before Valentine’s Day – which was totally unexpected and even more awesome!

I know everyone says Valentine’s Day is all commercial bull**** but it was really lovely to take a walk in the city before our dinner date – to see all the couples wining and dining, feeling the love and taking a couple of hours to spend quality time together.

Mr. J took me to Mezzalira Ristorante, a new place for both of us.  There were three dining options – the degustation, the 3 course and the 2 course.  Because I started 12WBT this week, I said no to the degustation and would have preferred the 2 course, but we compromised with the 3 course.

In 12WBT standards, I probably enjoyed myself a little too much, but the food was fabulous – in particular the dessert.  I did feel a little too full after, which is a good sign that my body is changing.

Anyway, enough diet talk, so the food was amazing, and the evening was lovely – one complaint however, for those interested in a Mezzalira review – the service was a little lacking.  I know it is Valentine’s and they were busy, but I expected more.  This does not extend to all the wait staff, it appeared as though other waitstaff were happier about working that night  ;)
