In celebration of our wedding anniversary Marcus and I spent our weekend across the river in Minneapolis.
On our acualy anniversary day we spent a nice home cooked dinner at home. I tried to be all fancy with long candles but failed misserably when within the first 5 minutes both ended up cracked and broken on the floor, very much like the romantic feel i wanted for them. I improvised and we had short little candles at out dinnner table! I also tried a Raspberry Mousse recipe I located on Pinterest. Everything was absolutley delicous.
Friday night we went sit and listen to Ingrid Michaelson at the Northrop Theater. Before the show we had dinner at the Union rooftop. I had seen photos and it was finally our turn to part take of it! Even better we enjoyed out dinner as the sun was setting! Ingrid is one singer song writer that speaks to my soul on so many levels! Marcus and I's song is her cover of "Can't Help Falling In Love." It was one of my favorite moments of our entire weekend.
Lastly we spent Saturday morning walking with Riverview Food Tours with Kevin as our guide!
As we walked round to different restaurants by the river he told us all about the sinigicants to each spot to the Minneapolis area. We had a cookie from the Salty Tart at the farmers Market, a spring roll and chicken and rice dish from Sawatdee, Cheese bread and Spagetti from Old Spagetti Factory, Cheese curds from Tuggs Tavern, and lastly gelato from Wilde Roast Cafe.
My favorite dish was the Spring roll which I had always wanted to try and Marcus really enjoyed the spagetti! It was something we had never done and were able to enjoy together!
It was the best weather to be walking all around the area and totally worth it!
