This was, by far, the most romantic Valentine’s I have ever experienced. See if you agree.
For breakfast, Don made Blueberry French Toast, dusted with powdered sugar, fresh coffee and the bestest card he could find. (We did exchange cards and 4 cooking classes taking place in the early Spring).
I took him out for lunch.- he says “we did the lunch thing” and ate probably the best pizza around.
Now, for dinner:
A glass of wine (Pinot Noir) to start with and a toast to each other.
Now we started with a Winter Salad -radish, avocado, carrots, celery, romaine lettuce, chick peas, sugar snap peas, red peppers and an incredible lemon, sour cream and garlic aoli dressing.
Get ready….here it comes – an absolutely delicious twice baked potato covered with cheese which has melted, asparagus and, without a word of a lie, a Filet of Beef that was a good 2 to 2- 1/2 inches high and barbecued with a balsamic/red wine reduction. I left not one speck of anything on my plate. Did I mention we put the dieting aside today?
We were so full, I had a glass of Burgundy Ice Wine and Don had a cheesecake ball with salted caramel for dessert. He wanted to make crepes but I don’t know where we would have put it.
All in all, it was a day made in heaven. I even asked him if he was leaving me and he responded “next year your turn and I’ll clean up”. Sounds fair to me except I can’t possibly dirty every dish we own. JUST KIDDING.
I loved every second of it and now I’ll spend the next 11 months pampering him to make up for it. Agree?
