Last night my husband and I went on a "date".
We had a delicious meal at a French restaurant....
well, actually, my main course was not to my liking, but they were very generous and did not make us pay for it. I respect that, even though I didn't ask for it. From a restaurant as high ended as the one we went to, it is nice to know that they try to take care of their customers.
As for the appetizer, cheese crusted bread, my husband's dinner and the amazing dessert, it made up for my not so great choice in the main meal!
The appetizer was my favorite scallops in a light curry sauce. Here in Brasil, as also in Peru and Venezuela, you find the scallops with the soft coral still attached. This is not allowed in the U.S., but it makes them even yummier!
The Crepe with Maracuja (Passion Fruit) was a perfect end to the meal. It was light and fluffy, filled with a smooth, creamy ricotta cheese-like filling. The Maracuja sauce was tart and sweet, all at the same time....all adding to the overall wow factor of the dessert!
Then we went to see a surprisingly different movie starring George Clooney, called, "Up in the Air". I always find it funny to hear how they translate the titles. Here they call it, "Amor sem Escalas". Translated, this means Love without Stops. Now, it makes sense for the movie, seeing as it was a kind of love story, and took place through airports at times....but still, a little funny!
This movie did not have a typical Hollywood happy ending...and it made the movie all the more endearing. Go and see it if you have a chance...well worth it.
Tomorrow is the sailing...pictures to come!
