Dinner last night turned out perfectly, thanks to differing perspectives.
MrsBlue thought the shell steak was a little tough (I didn't agree), so I
got most of that. I thought the salmon was a little fishy, so she got most of
that. And we both thought the risotto came out great. It turned out to be a lot
easier to make than I imagined, but I was still very proud of myself to have
nailed it on my first try.
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
