Okay, so I guess I didn’t realize that the tempura battered ahi tuna on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives was actually a TUNA ROLL that had a tempura batter! So my tuna was just dipped in tempura batter, and even at like 1 minute in the wok, it was overcooked.
But I did pick up a wine that Tony liked!
For an appetizer, I made Tony a half dozen escargot:
And I picked out two perfect avocados!
But I guess I forgot to tell Tony that the sauce was an AVOCADO wasabi sauce, so he thought the sauce I made was full metal jacket wasabi! So I get to the table and see that he’s put all the avocado sauce with soy sauce! It was the perfect balance of avocado, garlic paste and wasabi!
So while the dinner wasn’t a total loss, it just didn’t have the WOW factor that I was going for, and it was a lot of prep time and cook time and it made my kitchen a mess. So while I was moping immediately after dinner, I have regrouped and I am okay about it!
And how can I not be okay IT’S HANNAH’S 17TH BIRTHDAY TOMORROW! So stop on by and leave her a Happy Birthday Comment tomorrow! Her birthday wishes are simple:
- Visit our local thrift store
- Go to a rummage sale
- Check out a couple garage sales
- Go to the batting cages (my company’s softball season is coming up and she’s been playing with us for the last three years, even though you have to be 18 to play – no one has ever questioned it!)
- Chinese dinner out with me, Tony and her step-brother Joe!
My life is rich, if one dinner doesn’t work out as planned – who am I to complain??
See you tomorrow!
