100 to celebrates a weekend & spring's start

It was a rainy Friday night at home.........

We had had a long week...... we decided to treat ourselves...... maybe not the most natural food and wine pairing, but with the garlic and sunny flavors it worked for us:
Halibut with a fresh artichoke, caper, onion sauté and potatoes and white asparagus…..yum!
My favorite guy…….with a glass of wine.
