Sunday nights are for trying new things. For about three or four years now Chris and I have been trying to have nice dinners (almost) every Sunday evening. We try new recipes and most of the time Chris does the meal planning. Consequently, we usually end up at the grocery store to buy the ingredients by about 4pm Sunday afternoon and the whole dinner process is over by about 8pm. This time we spend together is invaluable. We either really enjoy making these great meals together or the time we spend getting on each others' nerves reminds us of those times we are more at peace with one another! The kids get fed and go to play and Chris and I take over the kitchen, making the biggest mess you have ever seen.
Our menus over the years have included: grilled tuna, various steak dinners, adobo pork, homemade salad dressings, roast beef, acorn squash and tonight we add Tomatillo Enchiladas with spinach, onion, & chicken filling. DELICIOUS! By far, Chris's favorite meals are Mexican delights from his favorite chef, Rick Bayless. It takes Chris two hours to do what the recipe says will take 45 minutes but he doesn't care. His presentation is fabulous and the food (usually) tastes as good as it looks. We work together on the clean-up and I finally am at peace again when the kitchen is returned to it's original condition.
My tummy is full but my taste buds are looking forward to our next Sunday evening adventure.
