As I mentioned last week, Friday was our 5-year “date-iversary.” So of course we celebrated.
On Friday evening, we kept things low-key. I chose to make a stir-fry because it’s one of Big Guy’s favorite dinners. The Szechuan Chicken Stir-Fry was super easy to pull together once all the ingredients were prepped. The fresh ginger is a must! So much flavor along with a little heat from the chile paste. I served our chicken stir-fry over Jasmine rice – one of our favorite rice varieties. On top of the stir-fry, I sprinkling of green onions and peanuts. Love the salty crunch the peanuts add. And for once, I didn’t change a thing in this recipe – well, I might have added a little less chile paste. So delicious!
For dessert, we shared a Mini Cheesecake that I had picked up from The Fresh Market. It was perfect with a glass of bubbles.
On Saturday, Big Guy took me out to dinner to celebrate. Instead of trying a new restaurant (though we have a long, long list) we went with a tried and true place. We knew that the food would be amazing and that the atmosphere was what we were looking for.
We were not disappointed. I didn’t take any more pictures – in fact, as soon as this pic was posted on Instagram, I was banned from taking my phone out of my clutch the rest of the evening. It was a lovely dinner with the best date I could ask for.
I cannot wait to see what the next 5 years has in store for us.
Happy Monday to you all!
