THM Anniversary Dinner

My Husband.IMG_7251a
My heart.
I love him.
He loves me.
We both love food.
He inspires me…

So, I thought I would combine his love for food and my love for cooking together to make a special evening for us both for our third anniversary — THM style all the way!

I am so blessed to have such an encouraging and supportive husband. He has made the THM journey a good experience – always willing to try new things, interested in and asking about what and how I bake/cook things, trying his own THM recipes (impressive!) and just being a constant support has been a blessing. I am so thankful.

Apart from food – God has blessed me with this amazing man. Marriage has been a learning experience and though there will always be ups and downs God has blessed me with a constant and supportive husband. Without Christ in our lives our marriage couldn’t be what it is. I am thankful that we both know Christ personally as our Lord and Saviour. Feeling blessed.

I have friends who own a beautiful cottage on a beach, last week I thought I would ask if I could use it to make a special evening. They said yes, so on June 9 I set off to get things started. Look at the view…mmm beautiful!

It took me a while to get things prepared. The day before I spent the day preparing the food I was going to take. The menu was as follows:

AppetizerFlax Parmesan Crackers topped with:
Cauliflower hummus or Radish Green Pesto
Prosciutto, Turkey or Shrimp
Cheddar, Pep Jack, Gouda or Goat Cheese

EntreeBacon & Goat Cheese stuffed Pork                                                                 Tenderloin

Shrimp & Cauliflower Salad
Garden Salad with Vinegar Dressing

Dessert – Chocolate & Vanilla Truffle
Coconut Whipped Cream

Now I bet you want to see pictures of the food, the recipes I used and the review….

I found the dips to be a touch too salty but once paired with the biscuits, meat and cheese it balanced the flavors. This made a wonderful appetizer.

Entree:
Bacon & Goat Cheese stuffed Pork Tenderloin

IMG_7162This….this was moist, and delicious. I have never done a Pork Tenderloin in the oven before so I was a bit nervous of the outcome. I was pleasantly surprised.

Green Beans & Garlic – Season them well and you’ve got it!

Shrimp & Cauliflower Salad – this was a new recipe for me and well worth it!!IMG_7148

Garden Salad with Vinegar Dressing – nothing new or special, I just love a simple salad

Spicy Chocolate BBQ sauce – another new recipe and this one I would suggest you go whip up for your family. It is easy and delicious!! I was a bit iffy on the ‘chocolate’ part but I assure you it makes this sauce amazing!
