Last night I had had a long day at work (par for the course these days) - Bill had set out rack of lamb to thaw on Monday for Tuesday's dinner. I came home and he had already marinated the lamb and was about to put it into the oven.
Fast forward three hours (I'll come back to the details of these three hours in a minute)
He comes home from baseball......I'm on the couch wishing I had stopped and gotten yogurt (YOGURTVILLE!) after the gym.......he busts through the back door, kisses me and heads straight for the kitchen....
2 minutes pass....
He is standing by the couch with Rocky Road ice cream and a spoon........he knows me and MY sweet tooth so well. How sweet is he?
So back to dinner...
Bill made the rack of lamb just perfectly and I made the side of asparagus.... but not just ANY asparagus....
Asparagus with Parmesan-lemon vinaigrette. Sounds delicious doesn't it... (pictures are terrible quality they are from my iphone)
|Start with Parsley, Parmesan, and onion (or shallot)|
|Grab some olive oil|
|Mix with lemon juice and olive oil|
|Drizzle olive oil and salt and pepper on the asparagus and roast for 6-10 min under the broiler|
|Top with vinaigrette|
|Throw on some feta (b/c I love feta)|
It's easy on the smaller distance runs....but it's tough on long distances. I like my music - it motivates me.
But that's beside the point....
I got in a great run, came home showered, caught up on some blogs and waited for Bill to get home to watch Biggest Loser.
I didn't watch the SOTU - I know how un-American - I 'll catch the recaps online today.
For now, I'm off to meet the handyman at my house for a quote for the stuff that needs to be completed in order to put it up on the market.
Wish me luck!
