Yesterday was my day out. Today I just wanted to stay in. I had no definite plans for dinner but wanted to fix something special. Along with something special comes a clean house for my husband to walk into and a candlelit dinner. The candles were a gift to us from a dear friend.
The contemplation of what to fix began formulating piece by piece as the day progressed. The meal would be basically vegan. The centerpiece of the meal was to be a lentil dhal burger. I had fresh spinach and strawberries. I could do something artistic on the plate with those items. I made my first creamy poppy seed dressing. It turned out great. I had beets. Beet chips, along with the strawberries, for the color red to adorn the plate sounded like a good idea as well as nutritional. To top it off we had dark chocolate truffles. And almost every item including all the ingredients on the menu was organic.
A grand day in seemed appropriate with my husband’s new promotion. The card on the table this morning announced that after a decade he had moved up from being the happiest and luckiest man in the world to the happiest and luckiest man in the universe. The task seems to get bigger every year. Now, I must work on all those parallel universes as well.
Actually, I’m really thankful he is so easy to please.
