I Got Lei'd On Valentines Day... It Was Simply Heavenly!!!

Last night I had the most wonderful evening with my husband Peter.  He sent me a vase filled with beautiful flowers and roses and I was so delighted I didn’t expect anything else.  As we were getting ready to leave the house, he surprised me with the largest and most beautiful white ginger lei I have ever seen in my entire life!!! I got lei'd by the man of my dreams on Valentines Day!!! It was Simply Heavenly!!!

There are hundreds of little flowers that make this one lei.  I couldn't believe how beautiful it was.  This kind of a lei is very special and can not be purchased at a regular store.  My husband went to the lei shop in Chinatown to get this one.  He told me that he had it especially made just for me.

I don't want to guess how much he spent on it.  But it filled the restaurant with its fragrance.  I had many people come up to me to comment on how beautiful my lei was and how heavenly it smelled.

We went to one of our favorite restaurants.  Uncle's Fish Market And Grill.  They are right on the water near downtown and they have the freshest seafood in Honolulu.  We enjoyed sauteed clams and piping hot garlic bread for an appetizer and some spicy ahi.  We thoroughly enjoyed both of them.  

Here is the poke that we ordered.  It was spicy and was so full of flavor.  We both loved it!!!

Just looking at the picture makes my mouth water!!!  The fish was fresh from the water and believe me it really does make a difference.  Uncle's Fish Market is right next to the fish auction block where the fishermen bring their fresh catch in daily and it is auctioned off to the fish markets and restaurants.  Jeffrey the manager here is on a first name basis with the guys at the auction block so they always get the freshest seafood.  

My husband Peter had the steamed lobster which was a large portion and he really enjoyed it.  One and a half pound of Live Lobster cooked twice to ensure moist, succulent meat.  First Oven baked with Sherry Cream sauce then topped off with butter bread crumbs and broiled to perfection. It was Simply Heavenly!!!

My choice for the evening was their fresh Maine lobster salad. Live Maine lobster cooked to perfection, shredded and served a top Uncle's big salad. It came with boiled egg, avocado, tomatoes, red onions and organic greens.  I had my dressing on the side so I could really enjoy the freshness of this salad.

I have to say that this Valentines Day was a night of sharing love, laughter and a passion for the man I have loved for over thirty five years!!!  It was what I would to call a Simply Heavenly Valentines Day!!!
