Date Night

As most of you know, The FireMarshall and I have been together for almost 27 years...since our Plebe year at West Point. Check out this amusing picture of us on our first "official" date at the Autumn Dance: Kinda looks like he is gearing up for a self-defense hold, huh? I remember standing in my room two floors above his getting ready to "call minutes" for dinner formation (ie. get hazed by Firstie Adam Stevenson) and in my door, pinging (walking very fast at 120 steps per min) with all military bearing comes the future FireMarshall. I was like WTF! Doesn't he know I will get my azz set on fire for having him in my room, especially if I'm late for minute calling?

He pings in and immediately asks if I would like to go to the Autumn Dance the next day. DA HELL?! You wait till the night before to ask me to the dance. "Sure!" ...and he was gone as fast as he arrived.

That was the beginning of forever.

I recently received a package from MyBlogSpark with a Stay in and go all out!® date night package from Wanchai Ferry & Macaroni Grill. The package included a box of the Wanchai Ferry Orange Chicken Entree, a box of the Macaroni Grill Creamy Basil Parmasan Entree and a $30 Gift Card to purchase the meat and whatever else I would like to go with the dinner to make up a Date Night.

Date Night around here has pretty been non-existant. We have been busy in the throws of building a business, landing & securing contracts, me job hopping to keep things "stable" till our ship comes in and so on & so forth. Date Night is considered a night when we are actually sitting down together at the dinner table. Me, The FireMarshall, Cara & usually Erin and/or Charlee. So, when The FireMarshall saw me putting these two dishes together, he brought his work out into the kitchen, knocked a few things out, did the dishes and sat down to wait for the gurb.

Date Night.

It was absolutely deliscious! Add a salad and a bottle of wine and WHA LA! A fabulous dinner in about 30 min. It was a lovely evening.
