I walked in to a romantic dinner at home. OMG! Sooo Sweet!!!!
Having to work on weekends is no fun! Our goal is to leave those jobs behind us very soon. When I have to work on the weekend all I can think about is wanting to be home with Gary making plans for our travels, blogging and our future together.
After a long Saturday at work, I get a text at work saying “Text me when you are on your way home, please, Kiss kiss kiss”. so as I was on my way out the door I texted Gary and said I’d be home in a few minutes.
What I didn’t know was that when I texted Gary he put Yellow Fin Tuna steaks on the grill. Gary loves to cook for us. For years I was happy with a salad or sandwhich. Who likes cooking for one? When Gary moved in, it took me some time to adjust to him being in the kitchen but then WOW the sparks started to fly when we started ‘cooking’ together. (wink wink) Is it getting warm in here?
I walked in to two beautifully prepared and served plates of Yellow Fin Tuna topped with an incredible reduction sauce on a bed of white rice with mushrooms and peppers, whole mushrooms and onion slices also cooked on the grill and a side of buttered toast.
The recipe is quite easy:
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup Soy Sauce
- 2 Tbs. Fresh Chopped Parsley
- 1 tsp. Fresh Chopped Orgeno
- 1 Clove minced Garlic (1 1/2 tsp)
- 2 Tbs Olive Oil
- 1 Tbs Lemon Juice
- 1 tsp Black Pepper (no salt added because soy sauce is salty)
Place all ingredients together in a dish that you will marinade the steaks and mix.
Marinate Tuna Steaks in the sauce and flip steaks so that both sides are covered with sauce.
Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Pre-Heat grill on high and Lightly oil the grill grates.
Grill steaks for 5 minutes on each side. More or less depending on the thinkness.
Brush both sides with left over marinade.
Option: You can also simmer marinade sauce on low heat to a thick, rich and creamy sauce as a topping. (That’s what Gary did. So tasty.
How would you feel ladies, after a long day at work, walking in to music playing as you slip off your shoes, and see the table set with an amazing dinner ready to sit down, sip some white wine (or your favorite beverage), and bite into a burst of wonderful flavors? Well that’s exactly how I felt. I felt loved, I felt appreciated. I felt relieved that I didn’t have to cook dinner. Oh I forgot to mention that he had the dishes done too. Of course there were lots of hugs and kisses too before, during and after dinner. I so appreciate what he had prepared for me with so much love I had to take pictures and create this post and share, encourage and inspire you. Love and romance is so great to feel after so many years of not knowing those feelings. That will be a subject for a future post or when we speak at a live event.
Now you know why I had to put this post together and share with you how I felt when I walked in to a romantic dinner at home.
I repeat…. OMG! Sooo Sweet!!!! So Loving! So Romantic!
