Hubby Makes Dinner

Earlier this week, Vince came home from the fitness center and said he'd decided to make me dinner one night this week. Apparently he'd been watching The Food Network while working out and got inspired. Isn't that funny? Watching cooking shows while excersising! Just my style! If we actually had real cable where I got The Food Network, it would be a very bad thing...Anyway, my sweet hubby headed to the store today to get his special ingredients and made us a very delicious dinner tonight.

First, he put the artichokes on to cook in some water with butter, lemon juice and salt.

Next he started his red pepper sauce in which we would dip the artichoke petals/leaves/whatever you call them.

Among the ingredients for this sauce were, obviously, red bell peppers, chipotle peppers, vinegar, garlic, seasonings.

With the red pepper sauce nicely blended, he started on some yummy guacamole.

It turned out sooooo good!!

Finally he threw some salmon fillets on the grill , put some garlic toast in the oven, scooped out the perfectly done artichokes and then dinner was ready! I must say, his presentation was very impressive, too! And so very delicious! Even The Princess enjoyed the guacamole and the artichokes.

Oh, and yes, that was a Bon Jovi compilation set...it was actually 3 of his old CDs in one "set". BUT I returned it for the one compilation CD I wanted (Crossroads). It has ALL of my favorite songs from all 3 of the CDs in the original set. (Apparently there was a misunderstanding of my original request, but Hubby happily made the exchange for me! :) I've been rockin' to "Livin' on a Prayer" and "Wanted Dead or Alive" all weekend! :)

Though my husband is a good cook I can't imagine him cooking like that! His specialties include gumbo, chili and anything on the grill. BTW, I collect Blue Willow dishes - mine are the ones made in Japan many years ago. They were my first dishes when I married. I noticed yours in this post. :) blessings, marlene

Wow! What an awesome hubby! (And what great food!) Very impressive!

Could he teach my husband how to get inspired like that? ;-)

Very impressive dinner! The picture of the final product looks like something you would see in a food magazine! Vince looks like he has lost weight too?
