I decided this year to set up a small table for two in front of the fireplace to eat our Valentine's Day dinner.
I brought out my Mom and Dad's silverware to make the table settings special.
Small candles clustered to set the romantic and cozy mood.
Fun champagne flutes paired with crystal wine glasses.
Our side was roasted asparagus served at room temperature topped with shavings of reggiano-parmagiano. I garnished the asparagus with baby heirloom lettuce leaves.
The entree was lemon pasta with shrimp. David raved over it and even asked to have the leftovers for dinner tonight. David doesn't usually like to eat leftovers, so that says a lot. We had a nice bottle of red.
I'm looking forward to the leftovers tonight as well.
David loves dark chocolate brownies, so I baked some earlier in the day. In over-sized margarita glasses I scooped some vanilla bean ice cream. Placed two brownies halves standing up around ice cream. Topped with dark chocolate syrup and fresh raspberries we were in chocolate heaven. (The raspberries made it healthy, right?)
I hope that everyone had a nice Valentine's Day. To my family and friends, I love you all.
