Has your food coma from yesterday passed? I’m not quite sure that mine has but I’m getting there. Rather than having our class as originally planned, we decided to cancel it and chose a quiet dinner in versus an expensive dinner out with few menu choices and crowded restaurants.
We had grilled KC strip steaks with caramelized mushrooms and a balsamic reduction; these Pioneer Woman potatoes; simple pan roasted Brussels sprouts with garlic (of which I could have eaten a whole plate and been completely happy).
My Valentine loves brownies so I rushed home and baked some individual brownies with homemade whipped cream, fresh strawberries and a drizzle of balsamic reduction. It was truly amazing and cooking our Valentine’s day dinner together was absolute perfection.
I hope your Valentine’s day (is Valentine’s always supposed to be capitalized?) was beautiful. Now let’s put away the red food coloring and pink sprinkles and pull out the green! St. Patrick’s day, people. I can’t wait to see all the amazing treats that begin floating around, probably any minute now. What’s your favorite “green” treat?
I’ll leave you with a thought for this Thursday. How comforting is this?
