July Date Night

It’s been a while since hubby and I got to go on a date, so we were very excited when the toddler went to movie night on Saturday, and we got a few hours to ourselves. We met up with some friends and shared some appetizers. It was a fun and tasty night…

Sino Date Night 07

Question: What was the last memorable dish you ate? I really enjoyed the mushroom dumplings and the sea bass. The dumplings had a delicate mushroom flavor and were seasoned perfectly. And the sea bass was light and flaky and in hubby’s words “the least fishy fish I have ever tasted.”

Be well,
Andrea

  2. Yay for date night! That was interesting and delicious looking food! What was that first dish? Looked cool!

    Last memorable dish was really a dessert - chocolate raspberry brownie gelato! If I think about it really hard, I can almost taste it... ;)

  4. Beautiful picture. First dish that comes to mind is from Napa Rose restaurant in Anaheim. I can't remember what they called it exactly but it was a pot roast/brisket with a blackberry sauce over the top of a risotto. YUMMY! That restaurant was featured by Samantha Brown on the Travel Channel. That's why we chose it.

  5. Oh my: I can't remember what that was :)

    The first one looks a bit weird, don't think I would like that, especially if it's the fish which I don't like very much.

    You both look very happy at the last pic.

  6. I love date nights! We can get out a lot more now because all of our children are teens. We are in Florida now with NO children for a whole week!

    Hmm, I don't know what the last memorable meal I ate was. I'm hoping tomorrow night's meal will be memorable since it is our 20th annivesary!!

  7. So glad that you and hubby got to go out together. It's rare that we get a real date night. Our dates are usually running to Target - sad.

  8. Date night is the best... it looks like you had plenty of tasty food.

    The pork with chutney I made last night was memorable and delicious!

  9. Love that picture of you and your hubby.

    We have been eating a ton of sea bass lately b/c a fellow homeschooling family are fishermen and we bought a bunch from them a few weeks ago. It freezes really well and still doesn't taste fishy.

    The last memorable dish I had is Drunken Noodles from this weekend- such delicious flavor and perfectly spicy.

    Hooray for date night!

  13. Ah, that first picture looked like a jelly fish at first! ha ha ha! I thought, hm, a japanese delicacy I haven't tried yet!

    My most memorable meal: oh that happens EVERY night... like tonight for instance: salmon belly & roasted salmon skin, wrapped in nori along with spaghetti squash, portobello mushrooms & roasted green beans & fennel! Yummy... I cannot wait! :)

  14. Those dumplings look out of this world. So, you're not going to say where you ate them, so your dumpling-loving blog readers can try some, too? Pretty please? With soy sauce on it? ;)

  17. Great photos! My last memorable meal was a pretty much every meal during my honeymoon. The lambchops were amazing.

  18. Looks like you had a wonderful evening! I love date nights, and I know I will love them even more once I have children :)
    Ironically the most memorable dish I have had lately would be the sea bass I made for my demo at work! It must be a great time for sea bass! The meal was so fantastic, I couldn't stop eating it, it just melted in my mouth.

  19. Date nights are so much fun and what a wonderful array of food you enjoyed.

    My last memorable dish was plantains with black beans and sour cream. It was to die for. I need a low fat method for cooking them as they were fried.

  20. You guys are so smart to take the time for date nights!

    I guess by memorable you don't mean the Indian food I ate this weekend that gave me a stomach ache?

  25. Your date night meal looks so appetizing! I'd have to say my Panera yesterday was pretty darn great because I don't get to eat it very often so it's a real treat!
