monkey's, lion's, zebra's, oh my!

last weekend was pretty special. not only did tyler surprise me with an early bday present, but it also marked 1 year of dating (awwwww)! he surprised me with a visit to the national zoo! it was my first time there and i probably told him 100 times since we began dating that i always wanted to go. it's basically in my back yard and he was surprised i had never been before. we walked around for about 2 hours. it was soooo hot. the zoo was under a lot of construction, but we still managed to see some animals. i was hoping for a glimpse of the elephants, but they weren't out. the national zoo is huge and it's crazy to think that they fit that thing in the middle of the city. i walked away wanting a pet monkey. shocker. after the zoo he surprised me some more with getting a room at a hotel near dupont circle. we grabbed a quick bite to eat (mcdonalds $1 menu how i love you), took a nap (well, i took a nap), and then he surprised me AGAIN with dinner at Vidalia's. a 4 star restaurant featuring american cuisine with a southern accent. we started off with the most amazing bread assortment (corn bread, onion bread and buttered roll) and an appetizer, summer squash agnolotti. then, courtesy of the chef, our waitor brought us a pumpkin-walnut squash amuze buche that melted in my mouth. for our main meal i ordered the berkshire pork chop which came with truffle-mac croquettes and vanilla braised onions in an apricot reduction. it was very delicious and cooked perfectly. tyler ordered the halibut steamer pot which had rock shrimp, soft clams, potatoes and corn in a broth. his was really tasty but nothing to freak out about. i so would have ordered dessert, but i was comfortably stuffed to the max, and didn't want to feel sick. my early bday surprise was so special and perfect. thank you, tyler. you are the best :)




to celebrate our "anniversary", we cooked a scrumptious meal of chicken parm with spaghetti in homemade gravy (aka sauce for all you weirdos), garlic bread and a blue-cheese salad with cucumbers. we made so much which was a great idea because i just had its leftovers for dinner tonight! yummmmm.
