Happy Valentines Day to you, 2/14/08, Dinner plans

Happy Valentines Day to you
Happy Valentines Day to you
Happy Valentines Day dear DC'ers...
Happy Valentines Day to you
~~~My wish for each of you is peace, love, understanding, health, prosperity, and an abundance of happiness.
What's on your table tonight?
I won't be home and won't have dinner as I ate too much yesterday and my jeans are a tiny bit tight, but my thoughts will forever and always be with my love...

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!

Well swollen leg or not I have had my Valentine's day dinner planned for awhile and am not changing it!

For a starter I am making Thai Fish Cakes. Then a spinach salad with poppyseed balsamic vinagrette (my own concotion DH loves). Main will be Fillets studded with garlic and fresh rosemary and wrapped in bacon. For sides, baked red potatoes, carrots and broccolini.

Dessert is heart shaped molten chocolate cake, though since I have given up sugar and chocolate for lent (and hopefully for good), this is just for DH.

per dh request

sausage gravy, made with home grown ground pork and seasoned with my sausage mix

over

mashed potatoes, I found a few more yukon golds and will lightly season them with s&p, butter and some freshly thawed horseradish. No use putting too much seasoning in the tators since they will be squopped with the gravy

roasted sweet potatoes, did I mention we have a lot of sweet potatoes left?

chocolate sour cream cake

happy valentines day all

Thanks, LEFSE, for the beautiful Valentine greeting! Same back at ya! Hope everyone here at DC has a lovely day!!

"Happy Valentine's Day, All!!"
I have Aretha Franklin's peach cobbler baking in the oven right now. Sure hope she wasn't planning on having it tonight! Sure smells yummy.

I've got all the ingredients in place to make Caesar dressing for our salad and have the pork medallions thawing for pork tenderloin Diane. Not sure what to make for a starch side, perhaps couscous.

Got up early today so I could get the laundry and house cleaning done. All done. Yeah! Just have to fold and put the clothes away. The dishwasher is taking care of its job, so I'm right on track. We should have a nice evening.

Lefse, you are sooooooo fickle! First you say you aren't eating, then you mooch off the rest of us! But I agree, BuckyT your lobster trumps my fillet.....of course I could put them together.....
