Believe it or not, there aren’t too many nights when my Accidental Kitchen is closed. It’s not that I don’t like going out to restaurants (I LOVE IT!) it’s just that I work long hours and can’t justify the hours I’d miss if we had to go out for dinner.
But Valentine’s Day is one of my few nights out
Tonight was my first night out in a restaurant since going gluten-free. And it was tough to find choices on the menu that I could eat. But the company was great (just my honey-man) and the wine was good so I didn’t really notice how little I had to eat until a few hours after we got home. Guess we’ll have to do a little more research before the next soiree (kitchen is always closed on my birthday ).
My Funny Valentine
Dinner started with warmed bread. I didn’t eat any but enjoyed buttering it for my honeyman
We shared a starter: Mediterranean Salad. Extremely easy to make at home. Think cucumber, tomatoes, kalamata olives, green pepper, red onion, crumbled feta and oil, vinegar and oregano. Then it was time for the main meal. My honeyman had a plate of pasta and he was disappointed. Linguini Bari: linguini with alfredo sauce with goat cheese, peppers and mushrooms. Honeyman was disappointed because that’s one of the dishes I make really well and it just didn’t compare I had the garlic shrimp from the appetizer menu. Very tasty (shrimp really isn’t something I’ve tried my hand at yet in the kitchen) but I could have eaten two! Dessert was banana cheesecake for the gentleman and chocolate mousse for the lady.
