Things are not the same for us with the two kids around. One which a bit hard to do now is eating out or dining in a restaurant. Well our daughter loves to eat in a restaurant, but it is somehow hard to find a family-friendly restaurant in town, especially on specific days like during the weekends. This year, Valentine's day was on Saturday. The fact that it was a special day when people like to have fancy dinner at restaurants and it was on the weekend made all the restaurants were packed with people. So when my husband asked me where to go for dinner, I said no where. We decided to have dinner at home, considering it will be hard to book a place in a family-friendly restaurant or if we could get one, it won't be so comfortable to bring our two little ones. Having said that, it does not mean that we do not love to have kids around nor we regret to have kids. It just something that we must act and see it differently. And we are thankful to have two beautiful kids. Moreover, eating at home does not lessen our love toward each other. In fact we appreciate our partner more while working together to prepare the dinner.
The menu was Korean bbq short ribs and salad. My husband prepared the bbq and I made the salad.
The recipe of Korean bbq short ribs can be seen here.
The salad recipe is as followed
- bunch of lettuce
- 3 stalks of celery, cut into 4cm in length
- bunch of mini carrot
- 2 tomato, cut into 12 pieces each
- Thousand Island salad dressing
- bacon bits
Mix all of the veggie in a salad bowl and then pour the dressing and sprinkle the bacon bits on top.
