What's Cooking for Valentine's Day 2011?

Wow, I get to start this!

DH is working two shifts today, one at each job. (Ya, happy Valentine's) but we already Celebrated it by going out last Thursday).

All I know is it will be some kind of soup for Dad and I and DH will pick up his thermos full as he goes from job to job.

What about you? Are you cooking, being cooked for or being taken out?

I made some duck liver pate last night. Will have a boiled egg with it and crackers.

The I have a salad with honeyed figs and Roquefort with a sherry vinaigrette.

The main will be roast duck with asparagus and mashed potatoes.

We have Kathleen's cookies for dessert.

Not sure whats for dinner tonight. I have several choices though which include - meat - chicken breast, bottom round roast, fresh produce - potatoes, tomatoes, broccoli, string beans and basil or breakfast including bacon & eggs. I will figure it out later after I ask what everyone wants.

We had our Valentine Day dinner yesterday as it was more laid back. Today we will have chicken dinner pies for dinner.

It's a lot of work, walking all the way downstairs to the freezer and defrosting two pies so they can be heated for dinner around 7:30 tonight.

I'll make spaghetti since it's DH's favorite (often requested) and it's his long day. The sauce and noodles will keep for him to eat when he gets home.

I'll probably cook some rice along with the leftover roasted plobano chicken I made the other night, but I am headed to wally world for peanut oil and might pick up some Johnsonville brats... I haven't had brats in a while. Maybe one for lunch and one for supper.

I and a load of my single friends are getting together for a meal this evening. We'll each bring something to the table and some wine and just have a lovely singles Valentine! It should be a lot of fun.
I am taking tempura prawns and a mixed rice dish.

Tonight we are having my Strawberry and Dark Chocolate Salad, Crispy French Onion Chicken, cauliflower, and rice. For dessert we are having "cream puff" ice-cream sandwiches with home-made chocolate sauce, strawberries, and whipped cream.
