tonight we cooked in, and by "we", i really mean gabe.... he made us a fantastic dinner!
the photos will not do it justice. but it was amazing.
tomato, mozzarella, balsamic salad w/ steak, and fried okra.
then, after the scrumptious dinner, we made our way to the lookouts game! it was our first one this summer, and it was so nice to sit out in the cool breeze of the night, and drink a beer, and chat with friends....
so this was gabe's face when i told him that i was going to accept his challenge of not eating out this whole week! - he loves eating out- & so do i... but we are going to cook all meals in this week, so i thought i'd document the fun things that we make.
tonight for dinner.... we really just had this craving for a good burger, and thats just what we did.
burgers & sweet potato fries. yum.yum.
for lunch this afternoon we made fruit smoothies.... my favorite.
for gabe's birthday celebration, we did the week long version! - we celebrated his birthday week. so, from august 1st through his birthday on august 8th, we had something special planned for each day- something as small as a dinner out, or a surprise gift of nice liquor or wine, to movie out with popcorn AND coke! (which we never do!)
then the day before his birthday, we celebrated with his family, by having a progressive dinner. we started @ terra nostra, for appetizers & wine. then we made our way to easy bistro for seafood, and .... more wine. then we headed to gabe's parents house for dessert & gifts.
i had made him this chocolate oreo cheesecake, and peanut butter brownies. (YUM).
thank you Lord for such a wonderful husband, and for his 26 years!
