As a birthday gift to Woody I cooked him a seafood friendly dinner. It's a gift to him b/c we never eat seafood, as I think it's pretty gross. We're not allowed to use words like 'gross' around here when we look at others' plates with distaste; instead we say, 'how delicious for you.' [I do like halibut and salmon and also tilapia in fish tacos but I do not like crab, shrimp, clams, oysters etc...blech!]
I made up little menu's and we even had a yummy cocktail in martini glasses (they were very dusty when I took them down from the cabinet:)
these were the best spring rolls ever and it was a cool experience making them. our kitchen smelled so good and nothing in there was cooked, just fresh veggies, avocado and herbs.
but then I did some cooking: scallops and crab bisque were the main perpetrators to my olfactory disgust.
But, how delicious for everyone else:)
And then Jason grossed me out (I still shudder when I think about it) by drinking the remaining clam juice. Ick!
Owen's artistic streak continues and his work is covering our home. A lot of these new yellow ones were for Woody's birthday.
I believe if you click on the pictures it will make them larger and you can read O's description of what is going on in the drawing.
