This is the night, what a beautiful night, and they call it Bella Notte

Last night was amazing beyond words. The plan (or so I thought) was to go out for sushi at a local restaurant (they have brown-rice sushi—yay), then come back to my house and watch a movie, and I’d make chocolate mousse. But after he picked me up, I noticed we were heading in the wrong direction.

Isn’t the restaurant the other way?” I asked.
“Yeah, sorry; we have to swing by my house first because I forgot my wallet,” he answered.

Uh-oh, this wasn’t going so well… But when we arrived at his house and went inside, it was lit up with candles and soft  music was playing—turns out he had cooked me dinner!! (His older sister helped, he admitted.) We started with mix-green salads with fresh raspberries and Annie’s raspberry vinaigrette. Then we shared one big bowl of whole wheat spaghetti, à la Lady and the Tramp (he knows I love that movie). It was so sweet; I wish I had pictures, but there was no way I was going to say, in the middle of a romantic evening, “Hey babe, do ya mind if I whip out my camera to photograph the food for my blog?”

    What a great V-day surprise Katie. You’ve got a good boy. I definitely approve, and I love that his sister helped him with dinner…too cute.

    Looking forward to more of your recipes!

  3. Sal says

    That’s so sweet of your fella to cook you dinner!

    I loved blink 182 as well, I was so gutted I never bothered to get tickets last time they toured cuz they split up right after that!!

  4. Ricki says

    Sounds like a perfect V-Day! Glad you both had such a lovely time. 🙂

    Do I dare to admit I’ve never heard Blink 182???

  5. Kate says

    aww!!! What is it ab boys cooking that we’re such suckers for? Is it b/c we’re foodies or just girls in general:P Sounds lovely. I wish we had sushi places that serve brown rice! I wonder if they do have it, but I always feel prissy to ask for it:(

  6. Lauren says

    Aww how sweet is that!? Hubby use to play “first date” when we first started dating for me..he said it was how he felt (plus he loves Blink182, and that was the song of the moment).

  7. ConsiderEatz! says

    OMG, this is too cute! Is the boy, the Whole Foods boy? I dont think I am up to date on yourboy status! 🙂 Sounds like such a wonderful night my dear.

  8. Erin says

    How romantic!!! You’ve got a sweet guy-friend there.

    And I agree on Blink 182 being great workout music, and nobody better make fun of me either.

  9. Mandie says

    OOOH Blink 182 would be PERFECT music for a run! Thanks for the suggestion. I have a secret love for them also, hehe. Do you have any other tips for running in the cold? I’m not liking the cold weather very much (esp. because I’m in crew. cold water = not fun).
