Here is where we be.

Also fixing mashed potatoes, compound butter and pulled some cream puffs from the freezer.

Haven't started yet, but I'm stuffing and pan roasting a flank steak. I plan to make a side of seasoned grilled zucchini.

Haven't thought about it as of yet. Been smoking some trout.
Thinking sausage, pepper and onion sammies.

Cheese-filled agnolotti in browned butter seasoned with Italian seasoning, steamed green beans and toasted rosemary-garlic bread topped with 4-cheese blend. Iced for a chaser and Valentine candies for dessert. 'Nuff for us.

I made a Valentine's Day dinner of Italian food. I bought some "homemade" pasta from the store (lot better than the dry stuff), and I made some meatballs from scratch (fresh garlic, eggs, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, olive oil, etc.) in the the cast iron skillet. Then I poured a jar of homemade marinara sauce (Italian lady at church makes it from her grandma's recipe) in with the meatballs and finished it off in the oven.

Served with a nice $10 red wine. As you can see half of the wine is "missing", as the chef took it upon himself to "sample" the wine to make sure it was good enough to serve to the wife. :)

I have a Choice ribeye thawing. I also have a ham bone thawing for psycho-poodle. There is a fire in the fireplace, and a bag of crunchy Cheetos in the pantry -- I didn't want to buy them, there was this guy with a gun to my head who made me do it. He got away with it, because I was the only person in the store who could see him. Very clever guy.

Those gorgeous rib eyes look just like ours Beth!! I haven't salted mine yet though. Our whole asparagus will go into a baggie with olive oil/Italian herbs/garlic/salt and be roasted on the grill with the steaks. I'm trying to decide if I want to use my little V smoker like Kgirl has.

I feel your pain. I think I may have been accosted by that same Cheetos-hawking man. Several times a year I have an uncontrollable urge to buy a bag of those orange goodies and I HAVE NO GUILT about having orange-crusted fingers as I make my way through the bag.

Yep! That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!!!
