Date night tonight! I was alerted to this fact this morning by Happy Wife before she left for work. Ordinarily home-based date night is Wednesday or Thursday. This puts me on the hook for dinner.
The lead I am challenged to follow:
All ingredients locally provided except the chicken and feta. Peas from our garden. Preparation by Happy Wife. Baked-to-crisp prosciutto — TO DIE FOR.
What will I do? I can’t top this. Duplicating it would make me a copycat, a plagiarizer, a fraud!
Maybe I’ll just make her favorite, prepared with my own flair, a kind of Caprese salad – Burrata cheese (hard to find!), heirloom tomato, avocado and fresh basil. Served with EVO and salt. A chilled, unoaked Chardonnay. Yes, that’s what I’ll do.
I’m off to find Burrata. Wish me luck on that. If I can’t find any, I’ll need a chef, and quick.
