I Love My Cute Boy

So there's a restaurant in Davis that makes a dish I love. We're not often in Davis anymore though, and rarely contemplating dinner out when we are. So the Cute Boy decided to look up a recipe for my favorite dish. Then he spent the next two days preparing the meal. This involved grocery shopping and marinating meat and picking an ungodly number of cilantro leaves from their stems. Meanwhile, he also fixed my drippy shower AND got us a compost bin.

So I head home last night and come home to the entire house smelling like kitchen-heaven. The dish is a Firecracker Pork Fusilli, so it's pork and pasta and there's a brown glaze made from a reduction of the marinade, plus a habanero-cilantro pesto, plus a dollop of sour cream. It turned out really well. Also, he made manly sized portions, so I took some to work for lunch today, keeping the pesto and sour cream separate. I heated it up and then added the pesto and sour cream. Add to that a slice of leftover pie and I'm eating like a princess today.

Oh, and he got a teaching gig for the spring at Foothill College, continuing his unnatural streak of job interview = job offer. I'm so keeping him.

  • They are a small chain. There is one in the Castro, but if you know how to make it, that's a moot point.

  • Do you need wormies for your compost bin? We can give you some of our gang. They help make compost production quick and clean-smelling!
