1st Anniversary Weekend

NBH and I had a great anniversary weekend.

He made me a bouquet of origami tulips, since the traditional 1st anniversary present is paper. He also got me vouchers for cooking classes at Braehead foods, which I am super excited about!
I got him tickets to see Brian Wilson (from the Beach Boys) at the Royal Concert Hall in September. NBH keeps missing his shows and this will be his first time seeing him; it's also a Greatest Hits show, so should be good!


We had a free night at the hotel we held our Scottish reception at as well as dinner and breakfast. We assumed we'd have to choose from a set menu, but we got to have ANYTHING off the menu for free! Here's what we had:

Starters

B: Pan Fried Loch Fyne Scallops
French Black Pudding, Pancetta and Olive Mash

NBH: Warm Tuna Salad
Served with Potatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Black Olives & French Beans

Main Course

B: 8oz Fillet
Specially selected, quality aged, Scottish Beef from West-Greenland Farm,Castletan, Thurso. Seasoned and cooked to your liking with Grilled Plum Tomato and Chunky Hand Cut Fries
Tender cut from the Tenderloin that will melt in your mouth

NBH: Pan Seared Fillet of Seabass
Pureed Peas, Fennel & Potato Salad

Side Order of Pomme Dauphinoise

Dessert

B: Apple Crepe
Cinnamon Ice Cream

NBH: Trio of Brûlée
Lemon, Orange, Vanilla Bean

We thought we'd have to pay for NBH's wine, but they comped that too! We also got 4 drinks vouchers with check-in. All and all it was a very decadent and lovely night!
