Anniversary Dinner

August 5th, 2011

I spent 11 hours today at hospitals (checkups and follow-up on the leg) and then working non-stop at school, so I didn’t have a moment to do the day justice. Sachi and I first met on August 5, 2006, so this was the 5th anniversary of that day.

When I got home at 8:45 pm, though, Sachi was prepared. She made a spectacular dinner (more so than her usual great dinners). First, an anise-flavored potage soup, with garlic bread and salad on the side, with a dish of pineapple and cream cheese wrapped in prosciutto.


Then a meat course with dark chicken meat and a nice marbled steak, flavored with a new ruby-colored rock salt that has just a touch of Indian Kala Namak seasoning–a volcanic salt with enough sulfur to give it a egg taste, but tastes really good on lots of stuff–especially steak.


All washed down with some Californian red wine. Really good. Gochisou sama.

    That’s a beautiful spread, Luis.
    That Sachi is definitely a keeper!

    Oddly, due to my work schedule, this year Frances and I were in two different countries when our anniversary arrived last week. So now that she is back in CA, we are trying to find a time to celebrate our belated anniversary (once she has recovered from jet lag).

    We were going to go out for dinner somewhere, but after reading your post, I am considering cooking something at home…maybe Linguine Vongole (one of our favorites).

    Anyhow, happy anniversary to you both!
