Dinner For Two

Grilled Orange Juice Marinaded Fish 
with 
Mango and Cucumber Salsa 
and 
Side Salad with Honey Mustard Vinaigrette

Yea, I know, it sounds like a lot. I love when I start doing something and it eventually turns into more than what I was planning. This dinner started out with the fish and before I knew it, I will making the salsa. I knew that wasn't going to be enough, I needed something to bring it all together and I was trying as much as possible to refrain for doing any kind of rice; that's how I ended up with the salad. Once I was done making everything, I knew I didn't want this to be a regular dinner, I wanted it to be intimate. I guess the food did set the mood. After the delicious, flavorful and intimate dinner, we headed for the movies.




Mr. D. all excited and ready to dig in
