Last week my Fireman hit a milestone- he has reached 30 years on this earth. Of course, I made much to do about this special day, including throwing (with the help of FireMom) a surprise party honoring him- The Supper Club crew, fire station buddies, family, and church friends all made it out to celebrate. It was a great night of company, for sure.
Since an evening was spent with friends and family, I wanted to celebrate the next night with just he and I over one of his favorite meals- risotto.
The boy loves scallops like no one I’ve ever met, so I opted for seafood as the protein, shrimp and scallops.. yum.
Although this meal was for him, I was secretly hoo-ray-ing at the thought of making this for my sweet man. I was going to get this amazing meal, too!
Blanched asparagus spears make for something fresh to the seafood and rice skillet.
Risotto takes a lot of stirring to get through, but it is so worth it in the end to take your first bite of the creamy dish you worked so hard to prepare.
My Fireman was pleased.
In between bites, he got a couple mumbles out, ‘You can make this again.‘
Just before serving I decided my plate needed something more. I chopped up sweet cherry tomatoes and sprinkled it over top. You can totally skip this step..
But, look how pretty it is with the color red?
Quite a perfect evening with a perfect meal in honor of my perfectly sweet Fireman. Happy 30th, Lovie.
