We had a really fun Valentine’s Day this year. Both of us were working, but we made reservations at one of our favorite restaurants in Seattle – Cafe Flora. They do a fancy Valentine’s Day four-course set menu (but it’s all vegetarian!) and it’s usually sold out pretty early, but this time we got in under the wire. Some of the best things were our drinks (who would’ve thought?) – we tried three different ones: a blood-orange Douglas fir fizz, a pomegranate rose fizz, and a mango lassi with mango, chia seeds, lime zest, passion fruit juice. So yummy! We also loved the desserts – a chocolate tart with a raspberry and guava coulis and pink peppercorn “glass,” and a meringue filled with chair whipped cream and fresh citrus and finished with basil sugar.
We’re counting down the weeks now until baby comes, so it was fun to have a special evening just the two of us.
