Apparently today is Pi Day…as in…it’s 3.14 :) The day that gives people a great excuse to bake a decadently delicious pie, and celebrate its deliciousness! Well, today, there were no pies baked in our kitchen…*tear*…unfortunately pies don’t lend well to a happy tummy these days.
gorgeous grilled Mahi Mahi
What I did make though, was a GF Eggplant Non-Parmesan with grilled Mahi Mahi. And, unfortunately, Happy Tummies, it was not “up to snuff” with some of my other meals. I thought it was delicious….but then I made it. My parents loved the pasta, but didn’t love the eggplant….I come to find out when we sit down that my dad hates eggplant, and my mom is not too fond of it either….whoops. So, their advice was not to blog it.
yummy eggplant non-parmesan
The Mahi Mahi, however, was delicious. Lobsta Bakes’ wild, ocean-caught Mahi Mahi was wonderfully steaky and scrumptious. And so fresh! It was just my mistake to serve eggplant to non-eggplant people.
I really enjoyed it though!! The crispy outside of the eggplant, and then the gooey inside that just melts in your mouth! I loved it, but then I haven’t met a veggie I don’t like…even brussel sprouts!
But anyways, last night, we watched Black Hawk Down, and it was the first time I’d seen it. Oh my Gosh…what an intense and eye-opening movie. It really made me stop and reflect on the sacrifices these soldiers make to protect our country. Putting their lives on the line every day, being away from their families and loved ones, risking everything so we can sleep soundly at night. So today, on Pi Day…instead of baking pies or making witty remarks on the irrational nature of today, I’d like to thank all of the soldiers who protect this country, and defend our freedom by risking their lives. You are truly heros, and I am forever grateful for your service to our country.
Ok, enough sappiness. That movie last night just really moved me.
