Last night was date night. It happens pretty regularly on Friday nights. It's usually hitting the gym followed up by sushi, or just sushi, or sushi and an inhome movie. Please don't be jealous of our exciting lives. Last night was different. We had some very good friends over for dinner. My husband grilled filet mignon. He makes it better than any 4-star restaurant. Perfectly cooked (medium rare for us) every time. Add a sprinkle of bleu cheese. I did the sides. A dish of this (from REAL SIMPLE, Feb 2009 issue). This has become one of my favorites. Company likes it also. In fact, they've come to request it.
And a side of sweet corn, bought fresh on the cob, shucked, boiled gently, and cut off the cob with butter and a dash of salt added. More perfection. And for dessert... chocolate chip cookies.
And then, with bellies full, hubby and I wandered down the street to his office for some fierce competition of this:
I'm not one to brag. I'll have to check with my husband first to make sure it's ok if I tell y'all that I won 5 games to zip.
