Some plans need to be adjusted due to the fact life takes over and adjustments are required. So Don and I decided to do the ‘gourmet’ thing for us. We have, many, many times, simply planned our menu, laid the table in a special way and celebrated the day and meal for just us.
The morning began with a spectacular sun rise at about 6:15 a.m. then off to Church we went. When we returned home, we put this plan into action.
We decided the other day to plan our meal and the one stipulation was: it all had to come from my recipes that are on site. Done!
Soft gold table cloth/green flowers/candles
Good China/Wine Glass
Arancini** with a special sauce by Don and red Grape clusters/drinks on the deck, overlooking the ocean.
Belgian Endive With Dungeness Crab Salad
Filet Mignon with Oscar Seafood Topping, (shrimp/scallops), sauce for the steak
**okay, I didn’t make the Arancini but it was really delicious.
Being alone or just two people does not have to be a dull “oh woe is me’ kind of dinner. Try it and you will feel so good about yourself, the meal you prepared and, in general, life around you.
