Cooking Date Night

Darin and I had a little cooking date night.  
He wanted to make gazpacho and I wanted to make baked Alaska, so we did both!  
Not only was it a fun date, but I was able to check TWO things off of my 30 before 30 list.  
#20- Try a new food—both gazpacho and baked Alaska were new for me 
(however, I would still like to try a fig) 
and #26- Try a challenging recipe—supposedly Baked Alaska is a difficult recipe, 
but I didn’t think it was too hard.  Maybe I’ll have to try a crème Brule or a soufflé.

The gazpacho was a perfect recipe for our garden.  
It called for tomatoes, basil, peppers, and cucumbers.  
Here is Darin chopping up some fresh tomatoes.


A really cheesy picture of the two of us.


A cute helper woke up part way through our “date.”
