When Harry Met Sally Dinner: ANNIVERSARY EDITION!

Yesterday was our first wedding anniversary!  I was going to save When Harry Met Sally until around New Year's but it's my favorite romantic movie!  It was an amazing spread of food!!

For dinner we had "Sir, there is too much Pepper on my (Chicken) Paprikash", "I will never want that Wagon Wheel Pasta", Sally's "I'll have what she's having" house salad with balsamic vinaigrette with oil on the side, Harry's Grapes, New Year's Champagne, Pecan Pie-heated with Vanilla Ice Cream… on the side, and some of our year old Wedding cake. SO GOOD!

Sir, There is too much Pepper on my (Chicken) Paprikash
I found this incredible recipe here. 

1 tablespoon of paprika
1 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
3 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
8 oz of sour cream
2 tablespoons of cornstarch

2. In a small bowl add paprika, salt, garlic powder and pepper then stir.  
3. Sprinkle evenly over chicken thighs and rub in.
4. Place in your slow cooker.
5. In another bowl whisk together tomato paste and chicken broth. Pour over chicken
6. Cover and cook on low for 6.5 hours.
7. Transfer chicken to cookie sheet and cover.  Then place in the oven to keep warm.
8.  Turn setting to high-heat on the crockpot.
9. Whisk sour cream and cornstarch into the crockpot juices.
10. Cook for fifteen minutes and spoon over chicken. 

I will never want that Wagon Wheel Pasta
We just added some butter and parmesan to wheel pasta cooked for 8 minutes.

Cheers to a great year and many more!

Harry: The first time we met, we hated each other.
Sally: No, you didn't hate me, I hated you.  The second time we met, you didn't even remember me. 
Harry: I did too, I remembered you.  The third time we met, we became friends.
Sally: We were friends for a long time.
Harry: And then we weren't
Sally: And then we fell in love. Three months later we got married.
Harry: Yeah, it only took three months.
Sally: Twelve years and three months.
