I know, I know, I already posted about how awesome my Valentine’s Day was, but it just didn’t seem complete without adding a note about dinner. Ryan kept the surprises rolling and fixed this heck of a meal:
“Claire, have you ever heard of a… wedge salad?”
Ryan and I LOVE Modern Family and one of our favorite episodes revolves around a wedge salad. In a nutshell, Claire is upset that she introduced her husband, Phil, to the wedge salad with no affect. But, when his friend introduces it to him he acts like it’s the best thing since sliced bread. Ryan tends to do the same thing.
So, for Valentines Day, he started off the meal with none other than a wedge salad. Thanks Ry.
He also made NY Strip with sauteed veggies too. I swear, he makes a better steak than any I’ve ever tasted in a restaurant. I mean he pan seared the NY Strip steak (from the NY Butcher Shop here in little ‘ol SC) in bacon fat before popping it in the oven to finish perfectly.
Ok and he didn’t just stop at two courses my friends, he even made dessert. Yep, Mr. Meat Man himself made dessert. And it was pretty darn good. We even ate on it a few days after he made it.
Now I’m done talking about how great our first Valentine’s Day was as a married couple, promise. Hope yours was just as sweet!
