On Sunday, Carlos and I got engaged. He proposed to me on rocks of the beach of Conomo Point (in the Essex, MA area). It's our favorite beach spot. I had an inkling that he was going to propose soon but didn't know it would be then. He presented me with a beautiful engagement ring. Of course I said yes! These past two years with Carlos have been wonderful. I'm very lucky to have him in my life.
For dinner, I made steak tips with roasted red potatoes and steamed green beans. We popped a bottle of champagne to celebrate. The dinner was so-so. I had never made steak tips before and I bought the wrong cut of meat. Oops! Oh well. The potatoes were delicious but Carlos had almost half of them before we sat down for dinner. And poor Carlos almost choked on a piece of meat. Ack! I can't lose him now that I have him locked down for marriage!
Before I left for my business trip in New York, Carlos asked me to get him a slice of authentic New York style cheesecake to bring back to him. Unfortunately, I never got the opportunity. So to make it up to him, I made a cheesecake. It took so long that we had a couple of hot slices. Cold is so much better though and was more delicious on the second day.
Sunday was a day I'll never forget. I'm such a lucky woman to be spending the rest of my life with the man of my dreams.
