Stirling suggested eating out, but I didn't want to deal with Vday crowds in restos. So, Stirling did some online research and found an Indian place that delivers. The food was pretty good, even though it took a long, long time to arrive. We'll try them again.

We had onion badjis, samosas, an onion salad (it had raw chilies, not a wonderful idea), roti, wicked balti, and a mixed tandoori meat dish. I made some brown basmati to go with that.

Nothing fancy here. DH and I both worked a little late tonight, so he picked up a take and bake pizza on his way home and I made a really nice green salad. I lit some candles and am enjoying a glass of wine while the pizza bakes and DH makes his lunch for tomorrow. We really have never celebrated Valentines Day (DH isn't much of a romantic) :( but he did tell me that the "girls" at work gave him a bad time(guide naturedly) because he wasn't bringing me flowers or taking me out for dinner. Lol! I really don't mind....it's a work night and we eat out plenty so pizza will be fine. ;).

Steve your dinner looks lovely, maybe you are starting a new tradition in the kitchen. DH and I cook together fairly often. It can be fun!

Everyone else's meals sound great as well! Enjoy! Happy Valentine's Day DC friends!

My appetizer will be the mussels, if they still have that as a special because yes, I am a creature of habit.

BT - it is not a regular item but one of their specials, but it seems to be a regular special. They are in a white wine cream-type sauce, very thin, with mushrooms and diced tomato and served with a good crusty bread. This is a pic from the 1st time I had them. The portions are larger, I forgot to take the pic before I started eating. LOL They are just SOOOOOO good!

And I had the Crab-a-bella for my main last night.

Sorry, I never came back to this thread yesterday. I make a quick yogurt sauce using equal parts plain yogurt and vanilla yogurt (the vanilla goes well with the salmon) and then add diced, peeled cucumbers, and a dash of salt and cider vinegar.
