cooking night is definitely our favorite night of the week. trying something new, standing side by side, cutting veggies, sipping wine, listening to music, and then enjoying the flavorful results of our work together. last night was a fragrant five spice salmon with cabbage and bacon and a side of mashed sweet potatoes. oh man, everything just melded together so well. we marinated the salmon filet in the chinese five spice blend with olive oil, garlic and ginger. now, i’m not a huge anise fan, it’s just too licorice-y, but no one aspect of the seasonings overpowered another. and the cabbage was probably my favorite part. i do love me some cabbage. the pinot gris pairing was so spot on it was almost scary. it was a really nice, comforting yet simple meal that warmed us from the winter chill. i love cooking night.
