My Sweet Tomato Love and I
Jicama, kidney beans, spinach and hot fudge sundaes, the ingredients for a scrumptious date. Since returning to the US and allowing God to transform our marriage, dates have once again appeared on our menu. Tonight, we decided to splurge and get spunky.
We headed to Sweet Tomatoes, and threw in a twist. Walking through the salad bar with every fresh ingredient you could imagine from lettuce to blue cheese crumbles, we handed our plates over to each other. Tonight, I chose the food for my love and he chose for me. The only rule, no helping or hinting.
He created a salad filled with my favorites and a few that I wouldn't normally choose (broccoli isn't my fave). Then off to the made from scratch soup/muffin/pasta/pizza bar! My mouth is still watering. We laughed as we would fill each other's drinks with new creations. We smiled as we learned how much we really knew each other's tastes. And yes, there were a few silly gestures or bowls of steamed veggies that appeared on his plate. My sweet tomato hubby and I discovered some new favorites together as creative guesses can lead to tasty treats.
We would love some more fun, cost effective, and creative ideas for our dates. What are your most memorable dates, or maybe even ones that you would love to see us go on? I'm all ears.
