Happy Tuesday Everyone!
Earlier this month I announced I was hosting the movie How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days, a Food ‘n Flix featured movie for March. My announcement post on that event may be found HERE.
Well you know the saying, Best Laid Plans… etc., etc. My contribution to the party was going to be steamed crab…a nice seafood dinner which was shared by Ben and Andie on their first “date.”
Those plans went south on me but I was still determined to make it a seafood event.
I present grilled swordfish, shrimp simmered in butter, white wine and garlic, couscous and corn on the cob.
This low calorie meal afforded the opportunity for an extra glass of wine and dessert so – win-win. The man I didn’t chase away in 10 days (or even in 28 years) grilled this magnificently cross hatched, juicy, smoky swordfish.
It’s fun when we cook together. Doug manned the grill (naturally) and I tossed the other parts of the meal together. This was all delivered to our mosquito-infested patio in under 15 minutes. This is a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc joining us for the meal...in case you were curious.
Would Doug have put up with all agony Andie aimed at Ben in this movie? I seriously don’t think so. But it may have been close.
Our early “courtship” included me throwing his rug out of the car (into dirt) on every occasion I had, him daring me to toss a cup of tepid tea at him (he didn’t think I would, but I did) and a variety of other aggravating instances. Must have been love ♥ ♥ ♥
The roundup for this event will be later in the week - stay tuned!
