Celebrating a 48th Wedding Anniversary!

Yesterday was Jerry's and my 48th Wedding Anniversary.  I can't believe how swiftly the years have passed.  I used to think people who've been married this long were really old. But now that I'm here I've changed my mind!  When's the last time you've seen tissue flowers affixed to a wedding vehicle?  ;-)

We spent a quiet evening having dinner at Andiamo's Restaurant.

You can tell where this restaurant's priorities are. They have an extensive wine list, but when I ordered a cup of hot tea I got a generic tea bag from Cadillac coffee company. Quality teas don't bring in the money that fine wines do, so wines get all their attention.  I'm glad good tea is readily available at home.

The waiter brought our bread basket out first.  We ordered grilled Portabello Mushrooms with Zip Sauce for our appetizer, but I forgot to take a picture.  They were so good, and I especially enjoyed the Zip Sauce.  Our server said it was made with clarified butter, vegetable broth, and other "secret" ingredients.  I went online to look for a recipe when I got home and discovered the sauce was originally created in Detroit's Lelli's restaurant by their chef in the 1980's.

I had Pasta Fagioli soup instead of a salad.

Next came a side of pasta - Farfalle [bow ties] with Marinara Sauce.

I ordered Chicken Marsala and Jerry got a Filet Mignon.

Then the waiter brought the dessert cart to our table.

It was a toss-up between Butter Pecan Cheesecake and Tiramisu, but the cheesecake won out. Jerry practically had to roll me out to the car, but I enjoyed every bite!

Here's to many more years together, Jerry!


  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby, Phyllis! What a wonderful meal you both enjoyed. I love the cheese cake presentation. That makes it all the more appealing, doesn't it? I wish you many more happy and healthy years together!


  2. Congratulations! A role model for all of us!

  3. Happy anniversary Phyllis and Jerry, may you enjoy many more happy years together.

  4. I've noticed that all things tissue paper are in style these days, particularly flowers, so perhaps you were just ahead of the time! Happy Anniversary and many more!

  5. Congratulations and Happy Anniversary! Much joy and happiness, Beth
