cilantro mashed potatoes … made by hubby!!!

As I left for work this morning, my husband came home from his job, done for the day. He told me not to worry about dinner because he had a surprise.

I hate surprises. Normally. So I just had one question — “dinner in or dinner out?”

The what of it wasn’t important, just in vs out, and if we were going to have guests.

“Dinner in,” he answered. “You’ll like it.”

After work, I walked in the door and the house smelled amazing. I almost walked right by the cleaned dinner table and fresh flowers to set my purse down. Okay. I did walk right by them. But they registered. After I set everything down, I gave hubby a big smooch and thanked him.

He marched me over to the sofa and instructed that I sit down and relax.


I love him. SO much.

He set the table and everything and I walked over to sit down to a beautifully plated meal.

So beautiful, I had to stop and take a picture.

He even used cilantro. Amazing.

For dinner?
Chicken marinated in a honey lemon sauce, seasoned with lemon pepper and Mrs. Dash, and then grilled, served with mashed potatoes.

I can’t give the exact recipe for the taters, but they involved the normal butter and milk, and the oh so awesome ingredients of:
– garlic
– cilantro
– green onions
– parmesan cheese

And the icing on the cake? No, not cake. I’m not huge on sweets. Salt’s my Achilles’ heel.
Served with homemade beer. Really really good homemade beer.

I married an awesome guy. I’m keeping him.

    This dinner sounds wonderful…especially that it was made with love. Cilantro is one of my favorite ingredients.

  2. Cilantro mashed potatoes??? Wow, does that sound awesome. I love cilantro on anything, sometimes even adding it to my sandwiches instead of lettuce.

  3. Thanks for visiting my blog! I’ve never thought about cilantro on a sandwich — YUM! I bet it would be great on a grilled cheese or panini especially. Cilantro mayo is another experiment I have planned.
