tonight i had one of the best dinners ever. definitely in my top 3 for homemade dinners ever. i had:
- sauteed scallops, shrimp, mushrooms, onions, marinated in some sort of soy-type sauce*
- basmati rice
- asparagus with a bit of paprika
- mango relish: mango, black beans, cucumber, bell pepper, tomato, and probably some other things
*i can't be more specific about the sauce because i didn't cook any of this. well, i started the rice. min made it all and it was deeeelectable. d-eeee-lectable, i tell you!
and for dessert a few hours later i had a teensy slice of the german chocolate cheesecake she made me the other day (a thanks for all the help i gave her - and there was a LOT - with the disability paperwork she had to get done pre-interview).
and for the record this is exactly how i gained 10 billion pounds when i first moved in with her. :-p the only reason i'm not gaining weight now is a) i *am* trying to be more conscious about what, or at least how much, i eat, and b) heat makes me nauseous so my appetite is way down. good thing it's summer! and even if i didn't eat much, it was a wonderful way to forget another drudgesome day at work. well, that, a couple kisses from min AND pearl, and a little teevee.
