I knew months ago that I wanted to recreate our favorite honeymoon dessert for our anniversary. Since I don't do well with delayed gratification, I knew I couldn't wait till October so it seemed the perfect highlight for our 6 month anniversary on Saturday.
We fell in love with the Butternut Squash Bread Pudding with Creme Anglaise and Mixed Berries at Gorham's Bluff. I started baking on Friday and think I used every dish in the kitchen!
I had to roast the squash...puree it...make the bread...then the bread pudding...then the creme anglaise.
This is why this is a once-a-year treat...unless my husband has anything to say about it! He's already put his weekly order in.
We both enjoyed using our "B" dishes for the first time...so romantic!
We also enjoyed some board games and a visit from the neighbors dog...he's a sweetie!
Chris grilled us steaks and we devoured them with salads, baked potatoes and fresh, homemade strawberry lemonade.
We wrapped up the night with our dessert and I think we both cried a little it was soooooo good- just like we remembered!
We are so thankful to the Lord for bringing us together and blessing us with six months together as husband and wife.
You know one thing I love about my husband? We share one important love language- food! We make a perfect...and often stuffed...pair!
