land of great harmony
went for some sashimi last week here.
We also went on a date last night.
An actual date.
Got a babysitter.
Not a relative.
This was a first for us.
But definitely not a last.
We went to Cava- which was totally fantastic as always.
we shared a bottle of Mas Irene-Pares balta-2000 which was delicious.
(and probably a bit too much wine in one sitting for me...feeling a tad rough around the edges today, but well worth it)
The Torta Iberico Pork & Anchovy may look just like a pressed panini but was so so de-lish.
The Picoline olive, Green Apple, Fennel and red onion salad was fantastic as was the asparagus a la Plancha with lemon pepper aioli.
they both went so well with the Pork special and the Three minute Flank Steak with a white bean puree and chimichurri sauce.
Pork being the main theme for us as they are currently featuring Iberico pork which is absolute heaven.
It was so great to be able to come home and pay the nanny and just say goodnight.
Not that I don't appreciate when my parents look after Lulu for us, but it was a nice change not to have "overnight guests" after going out for dinner.
I love this nanny. She is fantastic with Lulu and I only wish we had met her two years ago.
Lulu adores her, and apparently had no problem going to sleep.
unlike with us...it actually took us an hour tonight to finally get her settled down.
Nanny 911 indeed.
but seriously if you haven't yet been to Cava, check it out.
