After being away the last half of the week, all I wanted on Friday was date night and a glass of wine.
I walked in the door and was greeted by these lovely “just-because” flowers and…
a case of New Age. Obviously one is missing from the box because it was being chilled so that I could be granted that above wish…a glass of wine.
Date night was off to a good start! Big Guy was in charge of dinner…so I don’t really have recipes for you – but I can tell you that is was a fantastic dinner. And the biggest shocker – no ribeyes were involved.
How great is that presentation? And I had nothing to do with it. I have no clue where he found this idea – but I kinda love it. Grapes, goat cheese and crushed walnuts. Three ingredients that when combined in this way are incredible.
And for dinner…kabobs!
The colorful beef kabobs were served over a mint and basil basmati rice. For the beef, he used seasoned beef tips from The Meat House (nNp – I think he read your comment!). And for the colorful veggies – squash, zucchini, red onion, bell peppers and mushrooms. They smelled incredible – I wish this picture was a scratch ‘n sniff.
The kabobs and rice were served with an avocado cream which was simply avocado, Greek yogurt, garlic and a few other spices. It was quite refreshing. A perfect bite was a piece of the tender beef along with a red onion and a dollop of the the avocado cream.
Date night perfection. Just what I needed.
