Cooking delorcious foodstuffs...

Seven months ago today, I asked HBoO to be my girlfriend. She said yes..:-D

We go out to eat a lot (like..almost every meal these days), and on my meager salary (about $100 a week), I have to find something innovative to do so I don't have to "make it special" by going to a more expensive restaurant. So, I scoured the internet for ideas, and decided to cook my own version of the expensive restaurant cuisine. After a long search through various blogs, attempting to find something that would require buying the least number of ingredients, I found my answer here...

Prior to adventuring to the foodstuffs depot, I thought maybe, just maybe, that I would make regular chicken cutlets and cut them into heart shapes, but when I arrived at the foodstuffs depot, I was presented with both the tomatoes and the asparagus for the above recipe. I made an executive decision and went with my first idea...

So I got back, took a shower, put on a nice outfit, and began cooking. Everything went quite well with the cooking process, except for the part where I nearly set the house on fire. I didn't read that the lemon extract was 84% alcohol, so when I poured some on the chicken while it was cooking in the pan to add flavor, it erupted in flames..:-)

Disasters aside, HBoO arrived and ate my delicious foodstuffs. She said it was pretty good, I was pleasantly surprised...
