Valentine's







Now that I have your attention......


On Saturday we 'found' ourselves at the Italian Market and decided to settle-in for a spell!


I will share with you our Valentine's 'pig out'!


We were mesmerized by the 'sweets' so ordered the above two chocolate selections first!


Before they arrived we figured we better have something to balance all that sugar.


Ron ordered the above Chocolate Orange Cheesecake.


I wanted to try the Chocolate Pate with raspberry sauce.


Both were 'melt in your mouth' moments!


But before we did/ate those mouth-watering treasures this is what we had first off:




We HAD to try out the 'club'!




And yes it was as good as it looks.



However, as good as it looked it was too much to eat at one sitting.



So we took half of them with us.




Besides, we needed room for the dessert!

  1. Mouth watering - I adore places like that (when I'm not on this #$!@*& diet! LOL!

    What sort of bread was the 'Club Sandwich' on? I couldn't make out the writing on the blackboard and I was unsure about the type of bread I could see in the picture?

  4. Well, OF COURSE you had to try out the 'club'! There's no way you can just walk by something that good. And cheesecake? That is my weakness... In my ideal world, it would make you lose weight :)

    Happy Valentine's Day!
