The other night, I got a bit of a surprise when I found that Chris had arrived home ahead of me. I typically leave the house before he does and get home before him, so I wasn’t expecting him for another 2 hours or so.
I was even more surprised to see that he had several packages on the kitchen counters, as well as some pots & pans on the stove. Turns out, he had decided to surprise me by cooking a romantic, gourmet dinner for two! He had stopped at the local seafood place, “Fresh Catch”, and picked up scallops, blackening seasoning, pre-made crab cakes, and lemons to make a fabulous seafood dinner. Isn’t that so sweet?! He said that he knew I’d been working hard lately, and he wanted to let me know he appreciated it. Rather than getting me flowers, which is what he usually does, he decided that I might enjoy a homemade dinner. He was right!
First, he started by blackening the scallops. He used cajun blackening seasoning, and it smelled sooo good!
