Happy Valentine's Day Dinner 2/14

Good morning everyone and Happy Valentine's Day

Hate going out to dinner on VD. I prefer to cook a nice meal for the one's I love. So dinner tonight will be shrimp scampi over linguine, garlic bread, and steamed green beans tossed with butter. For dessert we'll have chocolate lava cakes.

If the rain stops we will be going for a day trip and having dinner in a quaint little family restaurant in the Fraser Valley area (2 hours away). I will pack a gourmet picnic lunch as well to have by our favourite lake.

If it keeps raining I have an albacore tuna loin (sashimi grade) in the freezer and will have fun with that! We will have our picnic here at home!

I have duck breasts to do up. I will add potatoes au gratin and a salad.

I have chewy brownies for dessert.

we were supposed to either make lobsters at home, or go out to eat.
but dw just changed her mind and just wants take out. i was really looking forward to lobsters, but oh well.

now i'm hoping for thai.

i have to go pick up an edible arrangement thing first for dw since she said she doesn't want flowers or chocolate. and i have to stop by the pet store for a gift for our cat. it's his 3rd birthday today. happy birthday, mush.

I have plans to make Couquilles St Jacques with a nice salad and some bread. I moved heaven and earth to get the scallops (tough in a small town), laid in the cream, scallions and white wine, but now have a schedule conflict and may not have time to get it cooked in time for a reasonable dinner hour. Fingers crossed....

The kids really like stroganoff, so that's what's for dinner tonight. My husband and I went out on Saturday, so this is about the kids. I fixed the fancy Valentine's dinner on Sunday - chicken breasts stuffed with tarragon/lemon cream cheese and served with a bacon and tarragon cream sauce.

Happy Birthday to Bucky T's Cat!!!!!

We kind of missed the time window for going out to the Valley so now it is a "picnic lunch" at home, and dinner out.....somewhere!

thanks lp. i will pass it along.

i picked up the edible arrangement and it was completely wrong. since dw didn't want chocolate, i ordered a large basket of all fruit, none dipped, and then added a half dozen dipped apple slices.
they gave me a small basket with almost everything dipped in chocolate, explaining that they ran out of the non-dipped fruit, so they subbed more expensive dipped strawberries in a smaller basket.

when i complained, the manager gave me 12 more chocolate dipped strawberries to make up for it.

i don't think he listened TO A FREAKIN' WORD I SAID. NO CHOCOLATE EXCEPT THE APPLES.

well, i won't be a customer if theirs anymore.

so i raced out and got dw a silver keychain locket, a single rose, and a pair of silver and pewter earrings.

i guess i'll be eating a lot of chocolate covered stuff, and have to give up something else for lent. edible arrangements will be getting a nasty email tomorrow.
