I don’t know about you, but I prefer a romantic Valentine’s Day meal at home over a meal at most restaurants. That way you get to enjoy a quiet meal with your loved one in the comfort of your own home without any waiting or traveling…and I’m guessing the food is just as good (or better!).
The only downside to having Valentine’s Day dinner at home is the clean-up, but that’s where enlisting your Valentine’s help comes in. ;)
Here is the Valentine’s Day menu I put together to share with you.
I made this meal for Mike a couple weeks ago (yup, before V-day…a windfall for him really, since he’ll get another special meal on the actual holiday) and he just about thought he had died and gone to heaven, especially when he had the main course (roast beef for two)…but I’ll tell you more on that soon. I’ll be sharing each recipe in a separate post.
The first course was this beautiful salad, which is flavorful, hearty, and healthy. You’ll have lots of leftovers, but don’t worry, this salad keeps well in the fridge for about three to four days and leftovers make a fantastic lunch.
