Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

The Milton Inn

Hello, dolls! Hello, December!!! ❤ Aaah, can you believe it?? It’s the last month of the year!!! So I had a very lovely birthday weekend, thanks to A and our families for giving me a memorable 24th birthday! 🙂 This weekend has reminded me of how blessed I am and how beautiful life is. It’s no different from how I feel everyday, but this weekend was major! I can’t stop thanking Him for everything, because I know I wouldn’t get to this point in my life without Him.

Anyway, so I still have a gazillion things to post before my awesome birthday weekend. So I will work on my throwbacks and squeeze in my birthday posts once in  a while ( I mean you know the drill,right? haha). Since I am still gushing about my birthday dinner with A, I thought of working on an entry that is quite similar to that — date night with A!

I am very fortunate that I have a man who would take me out on special dates even though we are not celebrating anything in particular.

We are celebrating life as we like to put it.

The Milton Inn is a well known restaurant here in Baltimore. It is a 274 year old fieldstone building, so imagine my face when A and I walked in. It was gorgeous and everything reminded us of BCC. From the food to the service and the decors.

Bishop rolls – this is so BCC! It reminded me of the days Alyza and Karen and I worked together.

Olive and Goat Cheese Crostini

I am not a big fan of olives but mix it with cheese and tomato I will surely love it!

Heirloom Tomato Salad

I was not planning to order an appetizer for myself but A said a proper date should have at least 3 courses so since it was summer, I opted for this vibrant heirloom tomato salad since it’s in season!

Tomatoes were fresh and sweet. Basil goes perfectly with tomato so the pesto was a perfect touch for it.

Venison Terrine

A and I goes crazy when we see terrine on the menu. We know the work that needs to be done and skills it requires to create a delicious terrine.

This is one of the best terrines we’ve had. It was very flavorful and delicate that it made me excited about A’s holiday terrine this year!

It started to get dark once our entrees arrived so I do not have good pictures of them. Anyway, I decided to treat myself that night… and when I say treat, I mean indulge.

Lamb Chops with Lamb Jus, Sweet Potato Mash, Asparagus with Hollandaise, and Roasted Tomato with Parmesan

This was the hugest entree ever!! Whole rack of lamb cut in 2 chops each cooked medium. What a meal!

A of course, ordered duck!

Duck Breast with Mushroom Risotto, Cauliflower, Romanesco and Cherry Sauce.

2 duck breasts with a hue serving of risotto and vegetables. I loved the risotto so much I ate half of it! haha

All the dishes were classical and elegant. It was another perfect date night with perfect date!

Since this was a spontaneous dinner, I was not able to plan my outfit. Good thing I have a couple of LBDs I was able to pull out something out of my closet haha
