Dining At Home On A Special Day

The recent Monday, 14th of July, was my darling's birthday. I've prepared a perfect for two dinner for the both of us. Well, not exactly "I've prepared", it's "We've prepared". You see, my darling love cooking too (when he's in the mood. ^^)! So on his birthday, he was on his mood to cook. It was him whom prepared the grilled steak. I did the lychee sorbet, potato salad and bruschetta. Cooking went on smoothly, and our dishes came out yummy~licious! We have a great time savoring each morsel of the feast. :)
