Two years of togetherness

Thursday, May 17, 2012

Flip and I celebrated our two year anniversary yesterday. 
That is, relationship anniversary. 
Not the other type. 
Sigh.

I have to admit that the road hasn't always been easy, we've had a few potholes, bumps and no lines along the way, but we took it slow, swerved, talked it out and stuck together! We're like a well-oiled car. Okay, so where did all this car similes just pop out from?

We love each other. And that, at the end of the day, is all that matters.

He bought me a stunning little pendant. I nearly cried when I opened it, it is soooo pretty and petite.
I don't know if he intended it to be this way, but I interpret the two interlocked hearts as him and I.

I bought him a cookbook. Boy, does this man love to cook!
We paged through it tonight and my mouth started watering at all the delicious, yet easy recipes in it.
The book is also a feast for the eyes.




I think I'll leave the explanation of the book to the authors:

Words and food – or, how we speak about what we eat – interrelate. In this cookbook, a specific word represents each chapter. The word, its meaning, and associated emotions and behaviours, connect with the recipes contained in that chapter. Words are integral. With this book you will be able to eat them…literally. Hopefully, you will savour them too.

When it comes to food, what is it that we savour, really? Is it the taste of chocolate, or salt, or lemon? It could be the combination of caramelised onion, or sesame wasabi, or elderflower and mint. Perhaps it’s the feeling conjured when we sample such delights, or the conversation we are engaged in at the time. It may be the relationship nurtured over food or the cherished memory a dish evokes. Maybe it’s the excursion from the kitchen to the table…or the promise of dessert.

Whether you are a culinary enthusiast, gastronome, adventurous foodie or lover of prepping, kitchen pottering and around-the-table-lingering, SAVOUR has a recipe for you.


Just some of the dishes in the book.

And to Flip, I leave this message:
