Happy Valentine's Day! Whatcha cooking for your sweetheart?

I think I'm going to slow smoke a pork loin today, since the weather has finally cleared and it's not so cold.

..and for those of us that are single: Happy Loneliness day! :)

What's broccoletta?

I'm going to do something heart shaped. Maybe. I have cute heart shaped cake pans so I'll maybe do something with those. I'll also do something with shrimp tonight as we have a ton of it. Bisque? Alfredo? Stir fry? TBD later.

broccoletta is similar to broccolini, but it is a hybrid with a different veg. I'm heading to work, can't research it now.

Nothing that I know of.

He is taking me out to dinner and dancing.

Here's were we are going.

Old Martina's Hall - a Ranchos de Taos, New Mexico Landmark Restaurant, Dance Hall & Beer Garden

I am soooo close to having a proper kitchen. I can't wait to be reporting what meals I/we are preparing. He cooks too.

Something with shrimp. I haven't quite gotten there, yet. It is snowing. I am planning on baking some Red Velvet Cupcakes, but first I better snow blow the driveway, bring The Girls some more water and feed the woodstove.

Pizza and beer! I have a ball of dough in the freezer, cheese and pepperoni. I'll whip up a batch of sauce later and away we go!

What a great place Beth! I read all about it and I'll be thinking of you two.. dancing the night away.

We went out to dinner last night to avoid the crowds so tonight I cook.
I don't know yet what's the main event, but I might bite the bullet (hate to bake) and make a cake. I'm looking hard at Katie's chocolate cake that was posted at the favorite recipe thread. It looks easy enough so that's a plus. Maybe whipped cream and strawberries on top would be good. A beautiful bouquet of tulips were delivered this morning, so it only seems fair.

I'm making stuffed cabbage. Haven't made it for years, but we love it and I love us, so stuffed cabbage it is! My Mom always used tomato soup, so that's how I used to make it. Meh, too sweet. His Mom always used tomato juice. Also Meh, too thin of "gravy". I'm going to use tomato puree. Wish me luck!

We'll put the rolls on top of a mountain of mashed potatoes. I'll make salad, mostly to use up some greens and tomatoes before I grocery shop tomorrow.

Any chance we could get a Mod to add today's date to the thread title and move this along to "Today's Menu", please and thank you? I almost started a second thread...*slinks away...""

When you say stuffed cabbage do you mean like holupchi/cabbage rolls? OM NOM NOM!!! I haven't had any good ones in ages. Mom used the soured cabbage leaves and a mixture of barley, buckwheat and rice to fill them. She used a big can of crushed tomatoes on top. Totally delicious. *sigh* I wish my family liked them.

Still deciding on the dinner thing. Shrimp stir fry is looking promising if I get my butt off the couch and out to buy some produce!
