Date Night

rachel and douglas

So Douglas and I do not have children but we do have very busy lives and try to make one night during the week a steady date night.  It’s usually Tuesdays and we switch off from week to week.  If it’s my week I like to prepare a tasty (clean) meal or take him out to dinner.  On his weeks, he usually chooses to take me out but tonight he cooked and cleaned (sort of)!  I am embarrassed I don’t have better pictures but we were so hungry and everything was so good I only remembered to take pics when we were finished!

date night fish We started with a spinach salad that he topped with freshly cut strawberries, chopped macadamia nuts, balsamic vinegar and olive oil, S & P.  It was so tasty.  He had gotten a large piece of wild caught grouper and what he did with it was SO simple and so CLEAN!  He put it on a cookie sheet covered in foil that he lightly sprayed with EVOO.  He placed the grouper on the foil lightly seasoned with salt and pepper and then covered it with thinly slices of lemon.  That’s it! (sort of).  He baked it for about 20 minutes on 360.  We watched it closely and checked it often so I recommend you do the same.  I say “sort of” in regard to the fish because when it came out it really was delicious but because I like to add to everything, I lightly sprayed my finished piece of fish with more evoo and added another squeeze of lemon and a dash more s and p.  INSANE!  I say “sort of” in regard to him cooking and cleaning because I go behind him the whole time and clean a little (a lot).  Ugh…no man understands that if YOU CLEAN AS YOU GO WHEN YOU FINISH, THE KITCHEN WILL BE CLEAN!  That’s neither here nor there….

So alongside the fish he served our staples, roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli.  All with EVOO, S &P.  He added cinnamon to his sweet potato and I added a little crumbled bleu cheese.  All in all, was a fab date night!  We finished with FOOD BABE’S chia pudding.   That recipe can be found here.
