On The Menu – July 16, 2012
Hello my friends! I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! We really enjoyed our time together and I’m sharing a little bit about it today.
Dinner together at the table is one of my favorite parts of the day. A time to reflect on the day and share a delicious meal together. What is even more special about this particular dinner (the above picture) is that it was made to re-capture a sweet memory in our life.
When my husband and I were newly dating, I made him a steak dinner from my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. I remember being so nervous cooking for him for the first time. I wanted it to be perfect. It was also my first time cooking steak! Eek! I set the table with glass plates, cloth napkins and thankfully I didn’t burn the steak! It was a great night!
But 10 years later, I modified the original recipe to make last nights dinner. And to add a little more detail in recapturing that evening, I set the table with the same cloth napkins we used 10 years earlier. Of course, they’ve been washed and used a hundred times since then, but it was such a sweet night to have to ourselves (our little guy was already in bed for the night, otherwise he would have been joining us too)!
Do you have a special dinner or meal that you’ve shared with your spouse? If so, re-create that special dinner soon. Don’t wait for a special occasion. Sometimes the dinner that leave an imprint on our hearts are in between those special occasions!
I hope you have a great week friends! Make yummy food with your family and share many sweet moments! Here’s our menu for this week!
What special meal would you re-capture? Is a breakfast or dinner? Are there any special ways you’d set the table to re-create your special moment? I’d love for you to share!
