I stepped away for a moment or two...

Chris and I went to the Four Seasons Resort in West Palm Beach Florida for a few days to celebrate our 21st Wedding Anniversary. It was the best vacation I have ever had.

We arrived at the hotel and were greeted by a fruit and cheese tray and some white chocolate strawberries decorated to to look like baseballs, yeah we are Yankee fans. There was an amazing bottle of wine. They sent these up to thank us for following the resort on facebook and to wish us a Happy Anniversary!

After enjoying that treat, OMG the strawberries were so sweet, we went down to the bar and then moved on to the dining room, actually sat outside. Before going to the resort I had found out online that the chef at the Four Seasons had been known for his Eggplant Parmesan. Let me tell you that this was the most amazing Eggplant Parmesan I have ever had. My sister loves Eggplant Parmesan. I wanted her to be able to taste the dish. I was trying to figure out how I could bring a serving home on the plane...

Day 2 started with breakfast, Steel Cut Oatmeal - Manzano Banana Compote, better than my usual microwaved oatmeal! Chris had Two Eggs, Breakfast Potatoes, Pork Sausage, Citrus Brioche, Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice. The two of those breakfasts were actually breakfast and lunch for both of us!


Now about dinner that night... we went to Havana Hideaway. We had seen it featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This was honestly the worst meal I have ever had. We ordered the Get What Guy Got and there is no way this is what they served him. It was just awful. And I will not mention the possum!

Day 3. Our anniversary!!!! Went for a mani-pedi and then met Chris poolside. Had lunch at Atlantic Bar and Grill. I had the Bresaola Panini - Radishes, Gouda, Arugula and Lemon Oil on Sourdough and Chris had the 2800 Burger. Fantastic!

 
When we got back to our chairs by the pool we were greeted with this!

To be continued.....
