The last few weeks I have had a real craving for a particular meal I always order at one of my favorite restaurants. Savory and indulgent, this meal is what I would normally save for a night when I had more time, but after a long day at work, what I sometimes need is a bit of kitchen therapy.
This particular meal fit the bill.
Sometimes there is nothing more romantic than you and your mate making dinner together. The anticipation of the finished meal is not something you can reproduce at a restaurant.
I didn't want to get a sitter and go out. I wanted to make something special. While he watched me cook, we had a bit of wine and good conversation. Our kids were in bed early, so I saw this as the perfect chance for some adult time.
After 17 years together and 15 years of marriage, sometimes you need to get back to basics. Nothing says love like making dinner together in flannel pants and t-shirts!
