Flashback to the beginning of February and Dan and I are to celebrate our date-aversary , oh but we were young.   I really need to find all our old pictures and scan them, so much goodness!

The day things forever changed on 02-02-02.  Dan seems to put more importance on that date than on the day we gotmarried, so I thought I'd role with it this year.  I picked out a lovely meal from one of the two cookbooks I'm trying to get through this year.  This is what I ended up with:

On the menu was Barefoot Contessa's Seared Tuna with Mango Chutney  and Raspberry Royale to drink.

This recipe was fantastic for numerous reasons.  1- Seared tuna is delicious AND healthy. 2- I can't believe how flavourful the mango chutney was and that I actually made it from scratch.  I have never tasted a chutney of any sort before this.  3- This meal felt fancy and was really easy to prepare.  I will definitely make this again!

Have a great weekend.

  6. What about the first night I met Hugh "Boozing at the Warman Rodeo Dance 2005". It does have a certain ring to it.

  7. I kinda wish we had a kitchen in Vegas so you could cook me all the yummy things.
    I suppose I might just have to book a trip to visit you, assuming we like each other in real life lol

  19. We are enjoying (and were just reflecting on) our mango salsa over here. Wish PC ate fish. I know I should make it for me, because I deserve to eat what I like but do I care enough to have to make two meals?? Happy anniversary, love birds.
