Relax and enjoy

Monday, January 18, 2010 |

Last evening we had our good friends over for dinner. We decided to keep it simple and just enjoy the evening. My husband offered to do all the cooking ~ gotta love a man who can cook!
I have been craving the mussels and cherry stones that he and my brother made over the holidays.
They have a little kick to them but I like spicy foods. If left alone, I could easily make a meal out of these alone.
They are best enjoyed with a loaf of crusty bread and a nicely chilled Chardonnay.

Then we enjoyed a fabulous Grilled Seafood Salad Nicoise
It was fabulous! The scallops were so tender. I like my tuna a littler on the rare side but there a small mishap at the grill.
It's just what the doctor ordered after all the heavy foods from the holidays.

I guess this means I have to make dinner tonight, huh? ;)

Have you ever noticed how much better something tastes when you don't have to cook?

That looks heavenly....

I agree, it always tastes better when someone else does the cooking!

Sounds like you had a fabulous evening.

I was completely satisfied with my wonderful lunch this afternoon with my dear mother. But you have ruined it! LOL

My mouth is now watering and it is 10:15 at night!

Lucky you to have a husband that not only likes to cook, but is good at it!
