it's about freaking time, eh?

Pin It Now!

Sorry about the delay peeps. Let's just say that having a night class twice a week, combined with having every weekend filled up with social obligations, makes for not a lot of time for cooking or blogging.

I shudder to think of my fast food intake over the last couple of weeks. It was all the healthier choices, mind you, but still gross amounts of sodium and chemicals that i just really don't ever need.

AND, hubs b-day was last Sunday, and mine is this coming Thursday, so birthday celebrations with the various parental units mean less cooking for me too......

Normally, hubs and I would go out for a blow-out birthday dinner. But seeing as this year, we were getting so spoiled by the parents, and seeing as I have no money, we decided to have a blow-out birthday dinner in this year. So spent some time conniving and planning and scheming and came up with the following menu...

1st course - rosemary grilled jumbo shrimp atop a cucumber bowl filled with baby arugula

2nd course - grilled orange (like the fruit) and bell pepper soup with smoked paprika

3rd course - a split entrée - i) seared sesame crusted tuna with wasabi soy glaze and ii) grilled fillet mignon with truffled mushroom ragout, along with lemon mustard grilled zucchini and summer squash

4th course - strawberry cream tart made with the most delectable fresh local strawberries and vanilla bean pastry cream. YUMMMMMMM.

So I'm hoping to redeem my lapsitude I embark on a blogging marathon of the greatest proportions......
