On the morning of our first anniversary, we paid tribute to our Mexican honeymoon with chilaquiles. The dish typically consists of corn tortillas, green or red salsa or mole, eggs, and sometimes pulled chicken. We made ours with lots of tomatoes, jalapenos, and cilantro.
Following breakfast, it was time to exchange gifts. We both had fun following the paper tradition and added touches of our own.
Also, the book Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day (which I knew I would also benefit from).
The print looks perfect in our living room. And maybe someday we’ll add little baby bird nests to our tree.
Later that night we got dressed up and drove 30 minutes south to LIFeSTYLE trattoria in Bedford.
We enjoyed bruschetta, blueberry risotto, chicken cacciatore, and homemade tiramisu.
And a few weeks later (because it’s always appropriate to celebrate your marriage), we enjoyed a replica of our wedding cake: white cake brushed with Chambord and layered with raspberry Champbord preserves and mousse. We had much more time to savor it that night than we did at our reception!
How did you celebrate your first anniversary? Did you give paper gifts? Did you eat cake?
