17 and Counting

Recommended Posts

As for the 17.... Nope, it’s not kids.....  and though some of you might find it hard to believe, it’s not Kamados either....

 

17 years of marriage today for my husband and I... to each other I might add. Lol. 

 

And the best best part is... we both forgot until mid morning. He pointed at me and said “a ha - you forgot too!”  And I immediately knew what he meant.  

 

17 years ago, I’ll never forget him looking at me after we finished the marriage license paper work, standing there at the courthouse, and telling me “now you hold on to that receipt in case we need to get our money back”.  Ah, the memories....

 

So, we decided to do a nice meal as our impromptu gift for each other. I ran to the store and splurged. Tomahawk Ribeye and lobster tail for him. Prime New York Strip for me.  Since we had so much food we decided to spread out the meal over the course of the day. 

 

Had salads mid afternoon

Then grilled spinach artichoke ravioli with a jalapeño artichoke dip for an early evening app

My husband had his lobster tail while I was doing the sides

And then on to a late evening dinner...

 

His ribeye

And my plate

And sadly, 17 years is not the Komodo Kamado year apparently...  Maybe it’s 18.... I hope!

Awesome, congrats and nice meal to celebrate with!

 

Thanks!  Glad we spread it out. Neither of us had eaten since lunch yesterday. But it would have been way too much at once. I still only made it through half my steak.

Congrats on 17 years together. 

 

Very nice meals.

 

Thank you, Panchango!  Probably closer to 20 together overall I think. We are not the celebration type - pretty low-key here. Probably forgot more than half the anniversaries. Never any big “to do” over it when we do remember. Just a nice meal is about perfect.  Last year I was traveling for work and my flight to get home was cancelled. No biggie....

I'm a lucky guy, I forget the anniversaries all the time, but she has no clue when it is. I can literally pick any day between Sept and Oct and she thinks I'm correct. It's like the only thing she thinks I'm right about.
