I can’t remember cooking sword fish but all that changed last night. I wanted to make something special for Valentine’s Day. We had celebrated at California Pizza Kitchen February 13th to avoid crowds. Their $35.00 special (total cost for the two of us) that runs each year is an orgasmic treat. We started with White Corn Guacamole with chips, followed by their infamous Barbeque Chicken Chopped Salad along with a Thai Turkey Gluten Free Pizza and ending the evening with Key Lime Pie. (By avoiding the crusts, it became a Gluten free extravaganza for me.
So, on the actual Valentine’s Day I was able to shower my husband with cooking love. Sprout’s had wild sword fish on sale for $6.99 a pound. I marinated the fish with lemon, Penzy’s seasoned salt and Cold Pressed Olive Oil for three hours. This juicy entrée baked for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Yams were micro-waved for five minutes then slit in ½ and seasoned with olive oil and cinnamon. They baked for thirty minutes at 350 degrees to perfection. With steamed mixed vegetables of brussels sprouts, zucchini, green beans and broccoli, this was the ultimate in home dining.
My man Neal happily drooled over my gourmet dinner as each morsel slid down his throat. Just days before we leave for Melbourne, we wanted to enjoy healthy food. Who knows what we’ll be eating in Australia? Neal will need his strength to compete in the International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics. The treacherous butterfly stroke awaits. Swim team members half his age won’t even attempt the butterfly.
