Friday night. Date night.

I took advantage of the evening and actually had a date. It was low stress, fun, and it went like this;

After picking Katie up, we went to the PG Macey's as they're the only ones I could find that sold what we were going for -- "Fresh" Halibut fillets (It's Utah. Take it for what it's worth). We bought some of that and other food to make for dinner. We came back to the parent's house and made a really good dinner.

We cooked the Halibut on the barbecue with garlic and lemon pepper. We barbecued corn on the cob too since it was on, and barbecued slices of lightly brown-sugared pineapple. We made up our own recipe for Alfredo sauce. Not healthy stuff, but really good. We made it with garlic, cream, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, and some chopped onion. To top off the dinner, we made PiƱa Coladas. After throwing it all together, we feasted in the back yard. Good food. Better company. I recommend it next time you're single and around the Utah Valley area on a summer evening.

You recommend I divorce your mom and date Katie?!? Just kidding...how romantic. Did you have violins playing in the background?

Fun fun-- you and Katie are invited to come to california and cook for us any day of the week.

So when did you become a chef? If you come for Christmas, you are the designated maker of dinner! So do you go out with Katie often?

Yeah, all of my children have great culinary skills-even BUFFY has a reputation (at least in Provo, I know) of being a good cook. Therefore, I vote that all of my children be in charge of 1 meal, and I will just play with my grandchildren!!! YEAHHH! Happy tastebuds, and happy grandma!

I actually did hire an orchestra to play in the stream in the background. It made a few nice nuances for the atmosphere. Sorry I forgot to mention that part dad.
