Well. The french bread was amazing.
Also amazing? The strawberry spinach salad. It was light and flavorful and my husband was amazed that I worked strawberries into a salad. The dressing was superb. I will upload a picture tomorrow when I can find the cable that connects my phone to the computer!
So two wins, dinner must be on a roll, yes?
The crab cakes did not turn out. Mainly because I thought I was so sure of my culinary abilities that I didn't follow a recipe, deciding that I could just 'wing' it and it would still be amazing. I also used the wrong type of crab meat because I couldn't find canned lump crab meat at the grocery store and thought "eh, good enough" with the random crab meat that I bought. Also, I think I used too many bread crumbs. It was disappointing and we both just ate it as quickly as we could and focused on the salad and the bread. And, thanks to the power of Facebook, I now have two new recipes from friends to follow the next time I attempt to make crab cakes!
Mmmm.... the bread. I cannot stress enough how amazing the bread was.
So, like I said. The salad, a win. The crab cakes, a loss. So dinner was a draw, but it still nice to sit down with my sweetie at the end of the day.
