It came at the end of our Spring Break vacation and in the beginning of our move, so it sort of caught us off guard. But John still brought me home three beautiful bouquets of flowers.
For dinner, we went to a lovely restaurant called The Ivy House. It's located in a big, old Southern home and they serve good old fashioned Southern cooking.
When we arrived, they were already getting busy and they asked if we'd mind being seated in the Coffee bar. We didn't mind at all!
We started with sweet tea (which was PERFECT), tossed salads, and cheese fritters for our appetizer. YUM.
My entree was Southern baked chicken, which came with seriously the best cornbread I've ever had, amazing macaroni and cheese, green beans, carrots, corn, and a crescent knot. It was ALL fantastic and I could only eat a tiny bit of it!
John ordered ground beef with peppers and onions, which came with french fries, carrots, corn and green beans.
The desserts looked delicious but we had absolutely no room for any of them. We took a lot of our food home in boxes!
They also have a lovely gift store upstairs.
It was a wonderful Anniversary dinner!
