Last Wednesday night, my man and I were sitting around talking about, well, food. We’d just eaten dinner. I’m not sure why we felt the need to talk about food again so soon, but since it’s a favorite topic of mine, we rolled with it. It started with seafood, what kinds we liked the best (scallops were a favorite for us both; lobster and crab also made the cut). He likes escargot. I couldn’t go as far as to say I LIKE it (it’s more of a mental thing for me), but then he mentioned that he pretty much likes anything cooked in garlic and butter.
“Add cheese to that and it would be perfect,” he said. “Cheese, garlic and butter. That’s all I’d need.”
Now, some would say garlic isn’t the best ingredient for a date night dish, but I firmly believe that since the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, that trumps garlic. Besides, if you both eat the same thing, wouldn’t it cancel each other out?
