A Redemptive Dinner

Champagne!

With Tuesday night's dinner being as bad as it was, it wasn't long before I began yearning for a proper dinner to erase the regretful memory from my mind... Last night, David delivered just that.

Getting ready to pop the cork.

David texted me earlier, that evening, to ask if he could "make a nice dinner tonight." I acquiesced.

Later that evening, I popped open the bottle of Perrier-Jouët, which I had brought home on our anniversary, and we chatted and enjoyed champagne while David readied dinner.

Thoroughly enjoying the Perrier-Jouët!

We began our meal with homemade pea soup, which looked delightfully springlike, served with hearty whole grain crackers.

For the main course David served: haricots verts in whole grain mustard dressing and scalloped potatoes topped with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

For dessert, we simply had chocolate chip cookies and finished the rest of the Perrier-Jouët... while David made his very own Perrier-Jouët bow tie:

Très mignon!

At the end of dinner, I commented on finally being redeemed from Tuesday night's awful dinner; David's response: "You need me around to keep your taste level elevated!"

"Sacré bleu!"
