Last Saturday was a free day for us !!! Do you know how incredible that it?!!
After married for only 2 months, we realised that weekend if no longer fun and romantic. It is usually swarm with chores. Either it is housework, running errands, visiting family, and etc.
Basically, there’s no more tête-à-tête time for the 2 of us.
One of the things we learn from the pre-marital course is to ALWAYS try and have at least one day out of the week (or 2) for hubby-wife (couple) time.
So, in the spirit of trying to inject some romance into our relationship, I decided to prepare an elaborate dinner for 2 (at home).
I drag hub with me to buy some ingredient needed for the dinner. Not knowing what to cook, I just grab any basic ingredient.
When we reach home, i took everything out and lay them in the kitchen table and started to plan my menu.
And boy am I proud of myself… 🙂
For Starter / Appetiser,
Saute tiger Prawn sprinkled with paprika on bed of butterhead lettuce drizzle with balsamic glaze
Coq-au-vin served on a bed of thinly slice grilled aubergine with garlic bread on side
The picture doesn’t do the dish any justice.
Meal accompanied by Moet Champagne which was a wedding present for us from a good friend of hub from Perth ! Thanks !! It was divine and simply delicious… I couldn’t think of a better pairing for this fine meal. 🙂
Hubs was busy playing with his computer while I was slaving away in the kitchen for 3 hours to prepare the meal. So, when he come down he was definitely impressed. 😉
It really feel GREAT for me that hub enjoyed the dinner so much.
After dinner, we were too full to even think about desert (which thankfully – I decided not to make). Actually, I was just planning to cut up some fruits. hahahaa..
Anyway, Hub propose we take a stroll around the neighborhood. It was quite romantic…or maybe everything seems more romantic because we were a little drunk (considering all the red wine I pour into the pot making the coq-au-vin) and the champagne !! hoohoohoo…
