    My Valentine's Day Dinner

    my wife left me again (for two months on business), but we wanted to still celebrate Valentine's Day (which is also New Year!)... so we each made dinner and set the time for a dinner date - by Skype!

    my dinner:

    chopped Romaine w/tomato and shredded carrot and Caesar dressing
    calamari and fried shrimp, along with a simple Remoulade of lemon juice, Worchestershire, mayo, cayenne, and hot chili sauce:



    oh, and since she doesn't really cook - her fare was a plain burger (no bun) and small salad

    No pictures, but today was a grilling day under the Guanacaste tree. Chicken, beef, lamb. Various veggies were grilled as well. It isn't called valentine's day here, but friends and lovers day. I.e. just have a party.

    Ours was roasted herb chicken with smashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, carrots and onions and of course gravy. Oh yeah and a bottle of white wine. A great meal and a great day.

    Ours has a trunk of at least 5 feet in diameter, and probably covers a half an acre, at least.

    I tried my hand at chicken Marsala for the first time.

    The guinea pigs were my wife, my Mom and my brother. I served it over linguini with Italian bread and olive oil with roasted garlic and spices to dip it in. No pics but everyone was pleased.

    Hahaha, actually everything but the pancit bihon we took out from various places in LA's Chinatown. No one really wanted to cook. Still awesome though!
