Kadesma, that meal sounds great! I was going to have either leftover chicken, or thaw some steaks. Then I saw VanillaBeans Valentine's dinner, and now I want pasta and a salad.

If you have chicken, how are you going to prepare it?

Thank you for the compliment on my dinner last night. It was wonderful! I only had a banana this morning, and I'm surprised I could stomach that.

I'm headed off to the store soon to get cream, olive oil (almost out) fresh parsley, Cremini mushrooms, bell pepper and asparagus.

When I went to the market yesterday to pick up our Valentine's Day lobsters, they also had fabulous fresh thick swordfish steaks on sale, so I couldn't resist picking two up. Will bake or broil them tonight topped with some warmed tapenade & serve them with tiny (3-1/2" long) baby zucchini & halved grape tomatoes, tossed with sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, & extra-virgin olive oil & simply roasted. And of course the requisite green salad.

I was going to make Mark breakfast for dinner, but he went out for a late one, so that is overkill with eggs.

I just got back from WinCo, and put a pork picnic roast in my small crock-pot with potatoes, onion, one small diced apple, beef stock, a little Worcestershire sauce, orange juice (Yes! it adds great flavor), Herbes de provence, garlic powder and salt-n-pepper. That will be his dinner. That is good, because then I can take my time making my Saltimbocca.
