My kitchen still isn't done. Nowhere near completion. I went into Lowes this morning and watched emails get sent to the contractor...AGAIN, but still haven't heard from him.
Anyhoo, it's Date Night and I'm trying my hardest to make a nice one.
I was in the mood for shrimp and had decided that we'd have shrimp cocktail for dinner. So I bought 20 shrimp at Mariano's. The lovely, very helpful fish monger weighed my shrimp, printed off the label and then added another handful to the bag. Then, after I had told her that today is National Filet Mignon Day, she took me to "the wall" to show me a much cheaper ($3!!!) cut. I bought it and we'll give it a try. (I think it was labeled "chuck roast tenders.) Right now it's in the fridge smeared with garlic an Dijon mustard.
I found a cucumber tomato salad on LaaLoosh that was low in points and easy on the dressing as we are still eating on paper plates with plastic utensils. I modified it a little based on what I had and what I like, but this is basically what it looks like. Or what I hope it will look like when it's out of the zip top bag in the fridge..
This is dessert. Mind you, I'll be serving it in a plastic cup. This washing dishes in our bathroom is the pits.
It's strawberries in balsamic with a little grind of black pepper. I'll serve it with vanilla greek yogurt.
I do realize that I'm telling you about dinner all out order. My life seems a little out of order so I ask you to please forgive me.
Cocktails are Martinis.
Appetizer involves proscuitto. Mine with melon, Josh's wrapped around a breadstick with a hunk or two of parm.
These are my dinner plans, how 'bout yours?
