treats, treats, treats

Tonight, I came home to a wonderful treat. Derek cooked up a fantastic dinner for me. He is a great cook and a top-notch griller. Tonight was no exception.

Drink: A cold gin & tonic

Appetizer: Cougar Gold Cheese and Rice Crackers

Main Course: Ginger – Soy Flank Steak atop Grilled Green Onions

Side Dishes: Sautéed Baby Bok Choy and Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

I’m stuffed – it was delicious. And to top it off – the meal was mostly fresh and/or locally grown. The Cougar Gold was produced in Pullman, Washington. The Flank Steak was bought from a local butcher on Queen Anne – the beef was raised in Oregon. The green onions, ginger, garlic, lime, bok choy and the potatoes were all purchased at Pike Place Market. We are about to start a movie – but he tells me there is dessert too. Life is good!
