First of all, hope everyone is having a good weekend! Ours has been quiet - which has been very nice!! Mike usually has to work on Saturdays & I do too. Luckily though - he was off today. I had to work till about 3:30, but I was so glad to know that he was off and enjoying his day. He helped me out by taking a couple things back for me that I needed to return. A rug & some drapes that didn't work out. Then he went to the gym and just enjoyed the rest of his day. On my way home from work I called him asked him if Chinese food sounded good because I was really craving Kung Pao Shrimp. He said that sounded good and then he ended up running up to the store before I got home to get a few things I needed to make it for dinner. Since we were having Chinese food - I thought I would make us a nice little spread on the floor and we would enjoy our dinner with comfy floor seating. I pulled out a rug I had tucked away and tossed a couple extra red pillows on the floor and Voila! It was quite comfy (& cute!) It made me think that if we ever get around to having a party or something - this would be an adorable idea for dinner. I played my Dinner Party music I had put together a long time ago and we ate, laughed and enjoyed being together! Dinner was really good and the Kung Pao really hit the spot - although I think it may have been a hair too spicy for Mike. I say it all turned out good and it did, but the rice was a little on the mushy side. I tried rice in the bag (which I have cooked before since it's so quick and easy) and it turned out good then, but tonight it was not that great. I don't like mushy rice. So I hated that and found it quite annoying that the easiest part of the meal I was fixing was a big flop! Oh well - those things happen. I'm just glad we didn't have company - like we had thought about doing tonight. I would not have known what to do if that had happened.
I'm thinking we will be dining like this again very soon. I also think a girls night with some wine, sushi, comfy pillows and good convo would be fun too!
