I got a 9!

*I didn't get a picture of the plate so I figured one of Quinn would work! This is her "silly face"*

For those of you that don't know, I love cooking. I enjoy the challenge of finding something for my family to eat that is yummy, healthy and doesn't cost a lot. Since we got married, I have had Dan rate my dinners on a scale from 1 to 10 judging strictly on taste. (with 10 being AWESOME!) I wanted to be able to create a "cookbook" for my family based on the above criteria.

The highest I have ever gotten from him is a 7. He is stingy with the ratings :). Anyway, last night I made fried rice with yummy sauteed green beans and roasted garlic and butter grilled tilapia. Finally, I got a 9! I didn't eat the tilapia of course, but Dan and Quinn sure loved it. He even commented on how nicely the plate looked. I was stunned! Looks like I will be making fish more often!

I'm so happy that Dan loved your fish. Talapia is great. What does he rate crab pretzles??????

The crab pretzels from the restaurant- a 10. The ones that I made at home, a 7 :( I do have to admit that they aren't as good. That recipe is still a work in progress!
