Hope everyone had a great day with their loved ones yesterday. Thought I'd share with you the top secret dinner that my husband and stepson prepared last night. It's no small task planning meals in this house. My stepdaughter is vegetarian and I'm gluten-intolerant, so there's a lot of thought that has to go in to it! My sweetie did a great job planning and they both did a great job preparing. Not to mention, the presentation was beautiful!
Whole Foods and their fabulous gluten free selections! The guys cut slices of bread with heart shaped cookie cutters, toasted them beautifully and topped them with tomato, basil, garlic and olive oil.
The main course was gluten free fusilli tossed in an arugula pesto, topped with grilled shrimp (sans-shrimp for Amani). A side of broccoli with balsamic finished it off. It was beautiful! However, I was so into my dish that I forgot to take a photo!
When desert was served, I learned why I had been banished from the freezer. The guys had molded vanilla bean ice cream into heart shapes and topped them with strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. I think they had a lot of fun playing with the cookie cutters!
It was fantastic. Certainly a dinner made with love. Can we have it again tonight?
