I cheated and bought bagged salad-- the instructions for the recipe for PW's salad dressing made my mind spin, and I figured since I was already doing so much that it wouldn't hurt to cheat just a bit on my 'homemade' meal.
I toasted artisan french bread in the oven, and then made oven roasted garlic cloves to spread on them. It was SO yummy!
Shrimp Linguine was the main dish. Oh my goodness, it was sheer perfection and SO easy to make! The recipe called for white wine, so I just bought a big bottle so we could have wine with our dinner. One thing to note is that the recipe makes a HUGE batch, so I halved it and easily had leftovers.
View from the top. Don't you just want to eat the whole bowl?!
Drew's first helping.... we each had several!
Ok yall, this is so sad. I forgot to take a picture of the dessert last night. It was splendid, although I agree with PW that it's tricky figuring out how long to cook it. It was actually almost TOO rich, if that is even possible. Of course, I already ate the 3rd ramekin this morning (after my workout of course ;o]), but I remembered about the 4th one so I pulled it out of the fridge to snap a pic for yall to see how mine turned out. The homemade whipped cream was yummo too, but it's in an ugly tub now, so I didn't take a pic of it.
If you're still in the romantic evening kind of mood and need a good recipe, this is definitely one to try! I've posted the links so that you can just hop on over and get the DL from the PW. Hope yall have a fantabulous Monday!
