Yesterday was my 25th birthday and my husband and I already celebrated it in New York so I knew this was the perfect opportunity to request a home cooked meal. After all, my husband is a champ in the kitchen but we don't get to enjoy his skills very often because of our busy schedules! Here's what our meal consisted of:
Drinks- pinot grigio and heavy seas winter storm beer
Appetizer- beer cheese soup
Dinner- crab cakes, green beans, garlic mashed potatoes
Sounds delicious right? And it was easy peasy! The beer cheese soup was a tastefully simple item so all I had to add was the beer and milk. For the crab cakes we used a McCormick packet and tweaked it a bit by adding parsley and other seasonings.
And there was no need for a dessert because we were way too full to even finish our plates! But I have been wanting to make peach cobbler so I think that'll be on the books for this weekend. Keep an eye out for a recipe post next week :)
