A Quick post tonight.
All I need to say is: my husband cooked me dinner… from a recipe! I took a picture of Josh taking his meal from the oven. He said, “You don’t need to take a picture, I’ve cooked before.” However, in the past 5.5 years we’ve been married, this is the first time I recall him cooking for me. This is a very special day. And if I ever get my scrapbook out, it’s going in there!
His gourmet meal was an easy, satisfying and tasty meal: French bread with tomato slices, mozzarella and basil, served with a romaine salad. It came from the appetizer section of a 20 minute meal or less cookbook. As you can see it’s served on our best dinnerware. 😛
Anyway, on to today’s menu…
