First Time Since 2002

on valentines day i had a date for the first time since 2002. over the past few years i've looked at not having a date as a positive. not having a date meant i didn't have to cough up any cash to show someone special to me that i cared. i started dating taryn a couple of weeks ago, and she didn't expect anything for valentines day. one reason being that we just started dating and the more important reason being that i was damn near broke. on the eve of valentines day she jokingly said that i should come eat lunch with her for valentines day, and i caught her off guard when i told her that i would.

so i drove the 48 miles from lewisville to midlothian to take my new and quite lovely girlfriend to lunch. we ate at a new restaurant called "kim & jenny's". it is a home cooked meal type of place and i must say that i had one hell of a chicken fried steak there. after lunch we went to the park down the street and enjoyed a quiet stroll before she had to be back at work. during our stroll we decided that it would be great if i could stay and eat dinner with her. so i chilled at her house for a few hours until she got off work.

that evening she cooked, for the first time, steak parmesan. that's right, steak parmesan. she had the meat to make chicken friend steak, but didn't have gravy to compliment it so instead she used the chicken fried steaks that she made in place of chicken for the chicken parmesan recipe. i must admit that i was a bit skeptical at first. after taking my first bite of steak parmesan i was impressed. it was truly a tasty treat. so i've not only found a hot girl that i get along with amazingly well, but i've found a girl that can really cook. not only was valentines day 2006 my first in 4 years, but it was better than any other i can remember and probably the cheapest one on record. not counting the dateless ones of course.
