Jeff and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this week. We ate out over the weekend to celebrate so we ate at home on the actual day.
For dessert, I made a half recipe of Jeff's favorite lemon pound cake and my favorite, chocolate covered strawberries.
The first time we ate chocolate covered strawberries was in 1982 on an all expenses paid trip Jeff won to San Francisco. We had vouchers to eat at some fancy restaurants but we liked the street food sold on the wharf better. I was 8 months pregnant on this trip and I think we bought chocolate strawberries more than once from that vendor.
I made a few at home and they were so good! I just melted 3 ounces of chocolate chips with a teaspoon of shortening in the microwave. Then I dipped/spread it on with a little spatula to about 10 strawberries.
Jeff surprised me with this pearl and diamond necklace. So, can you guess which year anniversary we just had?
