I think I told you a couple of times that my hubby and I are do some old fashioned dating every Friday (or at least once a week if Friday isn’t possible) We need this quality time together once a week! It keeps our relationship fresh and strong.
This Friday we played a fun food game. I picked my hubby up from work and we drove to our local supermarket. There the fun started… The aim of the game is to prepare too dishes (either starter and main dish or main dish and dessert) The fun is that you get secret ingredients the other one chooses for you…
Here are the rules:
- We each had 10 minutes and a budget of 12,50 Euros in the super market
- We had to chose 6 random items for the other
- You are allowed to use these items and kitchen basis like spices, oil etc. only
- We went home and wrote on a piece of paper what we would cook with our items
- Then we changed the shopping bags and had 5 minutes to come up with a meal
- Then the cooking fun began
OMG this was REALLY difficult. First we both paced through the whole supermarket again and again and again and couldn’t choose a single item everything was either too easy or too difficult. In the end we ended up with that a good challenge…
That’s what my hubby chose for me:
That’s what I chose for my hubby:
At first I had to think really hard and so did my husband. We both thought that the things we chose were really easy and on the other hand found it really difficult to come up with an idea for the things we were given. But it was really fun. We listenend to some good music and danced through the kitchen. I have to admit we also had a few drinks Hugos were the choice of the evening.
In the end we had 4 delicios dished:
My hubby prepared Sweet Potats Chips with Papaya Chutney for a starter and Mie Noodle Wok Stir-Fry with Satay as a main dish. Delicious!
I prepared a Tuscan Noodle Salad as a starter and some Roasted Turkey Breast with a Mixed Chutney as a main dish. Also very yummy!
It didn’t look very yummy but taste is all that count’s. Don’t you agree? It was really fun and we will definitely do it again soon!
Now I am telling you goodbye for one week because we’ll be off to Italy tonight! Looking forward to a break from my life. Have a fantastic time – I will!
