Every Saturday night, I spend time with my fabulous fiancé. Since he’s doing the whole college thing and going to FMU for Computer Science, plus working full-time (nights!) at IRIX, I don’t get to see him much. I see him every Tuesday for Financial Peace University, but we really don’t get to see each other during the week because he’s sleeping during the hours when
normal most people are awake.
Sometimes we go out to eat. Sometimes we go to his parents’ house and swim in their pool. Sometimes we work out together. But last Saturday night, we decided to turn our date night into a cooking night. After all, he loves to cook, and I want to learn how to cook at least a few things (See Goal #8 in 13 things to do before turning 30).
We decided to go for shrimp curry, since shrimp is one thing both of us eat. I consider myself a pescetarian because (after years of vegetarianism) I do eat seafood now, but no other meats. In the spirit of open-mindedness, I’ve tried chicken a few times lately, but I have no intentions of fully crossing over into the meat-eating domain anytime soon.
So, our shrimp coconut curry was pretty awesome! Granted, we both had to add some extra ‘spice’ to it, and next time, we’ll use stock or more coconut milk or something so that it has more broth, but it was pretty awesome for the first time. It might not be up to par with a real Thai restaurant, but we both had an awesome time making and eating it together :).
