Steak with Lemon Tomato Sauce
I wanted to make something special for my hubby the other day, since he was coming all the way home from work for lunch. The kids were at grandmaâ€™s swimming, and I was in a major cooking mood, so decided to go all out. And whatâ€™s the point of going all out if you canâ€™t â€˜romanceâ€™ it up a bit, huh? The problem was, we donâ€™t really have a romantic home set-up. Our kitchen table was completely covered in coloring supplies, and the floor was scattered with toys. Whatâ€™s a girl to do? I transformed our kids play picnic table into a romantic setting, with pillows as chairs since it was so short! Hereâ€™s the table pre-transformation:
For dessert, since I was throwing all of this together so quickly, I made a Vanilla Pudding Freeze Pie. Itâ€™s chilled just enough to make a creamy and satisfying treat.
1 small Vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup Milk
2 cups Whipped cream
3-4 Small pie crusts (I had a pack of 6 small ones)
Topping of choice (I used raspberries), optional
Mix pudding mix, milk and whipped cream together until well blended.
Scoop into pie crusts until just slightly higher than the edge of the crust.
Top with your topping of choice.
Put in the freezer for about 10 minutes, or just while youâ€™re eating your main course.
Notes: Feel free to use other flavors of pudding. This is just the one I had on-hand.Â
If youâ€™re wondering about the glasses and the centerpiece: those are actually from our wedding! The centerpiece was from our cake, and the glasses we used for toasting. Thought it would make it a more special lunch!
Have you ever done aÂ surpriseÂ romantic meal for your hubby at the last minute? What did you pull together to make it even more special?
