R gets to my house with some tuna steaks, a ton of salad stuff, assorted cheeses, wine, and a few other random dinner-y things that I wasn't too sure about. R promised that everything had a purpose. I just smiled and nodded, opened the wine, and let him go off in his own little world of cooking.
I did help some. I made this fabulous looking salad. Like I said, I'm awesome when it comes to chopping vegetables. This one had spring mix lettuce, mushrooms, yellow bell pepper, grape tomatoes, yellow squash, and cucumbers. We added croutons later. I was very proud of my contribution. So proud in fact, that I ate the leftovers for a week.
|I don't think we needed quite so much for just two people.|
|I was allowed to mix the lemon-pepper butter together. It was delicious.|
|The tuna before......seriously huge pieces here.|
|And after. You can kind of see the actual color of the insides if you look around the edges.|
|Oh...and did I mention the caramelized lemon garnish?|
Overall, not the best dinner we've ever done. But it was still pretty good. Especially the fresh pineapple and raspberries we had for dessert. I *may* have eaten half of a pineapple. But then again, pineapple is one of the few fruits that I really like and this one was particularly good. All in all, not a bad evening.
