Our 20th Anniversary!

Our 20th Anniversary!

Well…It’s hard to believe but July 1st was our 20th wedding anniversary. Time really does go quickly.

We had a relaxing day watching the FIFA World Cup and biting our nails with the USA game. Bummer that they didn’t pull off a win.

In the last few minutes of the game there was a knock at our front door. It was Danny, our favorite chef, from Bella Pasta, here to cook us dinner for our anniversary!

David had arranged the whole thing. My favorite dish of Chicken Parmigiana over pasta.

What a shock!

Then he gets out our very expensive, last bottle of 1995 Chateau Mouton Rothschild that we’ve been saving for a special occasion.

Well, 20 years happily married is a special occasion.

So he pops the cork and we cross our fingers that it hasn’t gone bad. Thankfully it had not.

It was really good.

So Danny got to work cooking our Chicken Parmigiana. Being a professional chef, he is used to cooking on a gas stove. He knew we had an induction cooktop and he was curious as to how it would compare. (Side note…we installed a Fagor IFA30AL Induction cooktop in place of the standard one that comes with the coach.)

Well, he loved it. He was surprised at how evenly the cooktop heated everything. He didn’t have to turn the pan to get even heat as he would have with a gas range.

One of the things we were worried about was grease getting splattered every where. Well, with the induction cooktop you are able to control exactly where you want your temperature. So he was able to heat the oil in the pan without splatter.

Nice!

Dinner turned out wonderfully. Danny is a great chef and the kitchen in the Tiffin 45LP Allegro Bus with it’s accommodations worked well for him.¬† The coach galley was chef approved!

So Thank You Danny for making our night extra special!

After dinner we took our golf cart (we borrowed one from the park) and drove around the rv park. It was a nice evening and the humidity finally broke.

Once we were back in the coach we finished the night by watching the latest Peter Gabriel concert, Back To Front, that just came out on Blu-ray. Great concert by the way.

All in all it was a great day of relaxation, a wonderfully delicious surprise dinner and a concert.

I can honestly say that I truly have a wonderfully sneaky husband.

I’m just glad that he uses his sneakiness for good and not evil.
