What's cooking Sunday February 14, 2010 (Valentines Day)?

I'm not sure if we are going out to eat or if I am making steaks or pasta.

what about you?

Steaks here. Not sure if I want to do them in the CI skillet or on the grill outside. Might have to go outside since there's no snow on the grill, and it should get up to 39 degrees. I can grill in that. Plus I need to do 6 steaks.

Plans are to go out to eat, but we're all fighting terrible colds here so may have to be take out or a big pot of soup.

Looks like steaks are the winner today!

I will be grilling a dry brined porterhouse steak and serving it with baked potatoes with garlic butter, sour cream and bacon. Steamed asparagus will be the veggie of the day.

Keeping it simple, roast chicken, cornbread dressing, roasted asparagus (the veggie of the day it seems) with garlic and olive oil. I'm going to spatchcock the chicken and lay it over a bed of celery and carrots.

My SO was given some samples of Teese, a vegan dairy-free cheese substitute, and instructed to make recipes using them and blog those recipes -- so, she asked me to make her risotto tonight and we would add one of the Teese samples. I conjured up this risotto with onions, red peppers, white wine, green chile, and "Nacho Cheese"-flavored Teese. It turned out a lot better than I expected, and my girlfriend loved it! She took pictures and will be blogging it soon.

To go with the meal, she made roast asparagus with garlic and these really awesome tasting grilled portabello mushrooms. It was a really nice Valentine's spent together in the kitchen.

Wednesday night I saw another duck at the store (frozen) so I grabbed it with the idea it could sit in the freezer until we wanted duck again (I had done one just the past Sunday). Kathleen decided she would love roast duck for Vday so it went into the fridge to start thawing.

I made duck liver pate to start (lucky me the duck had two livers), went on to a cream of mushroom soup, a simple salad with a nice balsamic basil dressing, roast duck served with fried potatos and sauteed green beans. I had some fried pears for dessert served with some french vanilla ice cream.

We spent about 6 hours eating, cooking, shoveling snow around a car that stole my spot. It was a good day.
