I don't have a dinner menu , whatever I am in the mood to cook , if even that. We could end up with take out or just leftovers. If my meat grinder arrives today and I have some beef roast to grind, I may cook something with that.

Sushi for starters (whether it will be home made depends on the energy levels that day)
Thai prawn curry for mains
Still thinking about dessert.
All washed down with the last bottle of bubbly left over from our wedding.

I'm making Dan's Ultimate Shrimp Risotto, with seared sea scallops instead of shrimp, and with roasted asparagus drizzled with balsamic reduction. Heart-shaped, heart-decorated, raspberry-flavored sugar cookies for dessert. Unless I pick up a molten chocolate lava cake for dessert instead

I think I'll pick up some shrimp. Maybe I'll wrap it with bacon!

Salad and a veggie to go with. Dessert?? Something easy and romatic to share.

We'll do a real celebration later in the week.

Valentines Day Dinner?

i'm thinking of putting together the following:

- Split stuffed cherry tomatoes with barley and wild rice
- Minestrone, topped with a heart shaped piece of gruyere
- Beef Wellington (the GF's favorite)
- Chocolate raspberry moose torte, with some chocolate raspberry truffles and fresh raspberries

I have 4 very special people: my husband, my two sons and daughter. I will be cooking our usual dinner and throw in a chocolate treat. Hmmm...maybe a chocolate tart or a chocolate cream pie.

The Hubby is taking care of dinner! I've been in the mood for duck lately so I think he might surprise me with a duck dish. If I can find good strawberries, I might make some strawberry trifle.

Jay, your thread has been merged with an existing Valentine's Day dinner thread. Now you can see what others are planning. Enjoy!

My girlfriend likes filet mignon topped with crab meat, so I'll make that for her along with mushroom and asparagus risotto. Not sure about dessert though.

I am going to try some rattle snake pasta, my girlfriend and I had it at a resturant and loved it. Its penne alfredo with chicken, jalapeno peppers, jack and parm cheese, planning to make the sauce from scratch.
