On my husband’s and my first dinner date, nearly 15 years ago, we went to a laid back pub type of a place that our friends had recommended for us. It was relaxed and comfortable, and there was no pressure to be all fancy and proper. That’s just what I needed because I was so extremely nervous. I could hardly keep from bouncing my leg under the table. It’s what I do when I don’t know what to say or how to act. Thankfully, it didn’t take long for the waitress to show up with the menus so we could order. When she asked if we wanted an appetizer, we both said jalapeno poppers at the same time without even discussing it.
That was the first sign that we were a match made in heaven. Not everyone can appreciate a jalapeno popper, but we both loved them. Since getting married and doing the cooking at home, I have tried several recipes of my own, but they are never as good.
