Man in the Kitchen and a Night to Celebrate

I can not believe I am about to say this, but this weekend marks the one year anniversary of me and Toly becoming homeowners! We bought our first home together one year ago and I am blown away at how quickly this year has passed.

To commence this landmark, Toly decided that he wanted to do something special and make a glorious dinner. Ever since his remarkable V-Day engagement, he (okay maybe I encouraged the idea a tad) that once a month, he was going to take over in the kitchen and cook/clean/shop...etc. I am not to lift a finger and I LOVE it! Not only is he a wonderful cook (when he gets inspired), he also treats me to some of the most incredible dishes (things I would NEVER buy in our weekly menus because of how pricey and indulgent they are).

Tonight he delivered one of the best fish I have ever eaten. Pan Seared Chilean Sea Bass. Wow, this fish is AMAZING! Truly, it's like a little bite of heaven with it's buttery sweet texture. And for over $20 a pound, I can honestly say, it's so worth it! Definitely not something we would buy frequently, but tonight was a special occasion and we wanted to treat ourselves and celebrate.

Along with this heavenly fish, he made roasted butternut squash and asparagus. We also toasted a few times with a crisp and fresh tasting Riesling.

This was such a decadent meal and I am so lucky to have a husband that treats me the way mine does. Over the past year, we have built our home and family and I have every last reason to be entirely thankful for the incredible blessings that have been granted to me. I look forward to all of the lasting memories we will make in our home over the next couple of years.
