As much as we enjoy going out for romantic dinners where we don’t have to slave away over a hot stove or clean up all the mess and wash all the dishes… Nothing beats spending a night in our home 🙂 Home is where the heart is ♥ and it means we can drink champers without having to worry about driving or catching taxis 🙂 Its a win win! oh, AND one more thing… I am happy to slave away over a hot stove and wash the dishes for my wonderful valentine anyday!
To start I made stuffed mushrooms… Big flat mushrooms topped with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, red spring onions and feta and drizzled with a balsamic garlic butter – pop into the oven for about 10 minutes (till golden looking). It was the yummiest stuffed mushroom we have ever had 🙂
For mains we had the lops favourite – STEAK, chips and veg (all valentined up) Just look at what I made… Sirloin steaks bought from woolies, which were divine by the way. We made a pact to ONLY buy our steaks from Woolworths or a butcher from now on. You just can’t mess around with a good piece of steak. Its either the best or you may as well chuck it out. Well that’s our thinking anyway 😉 Our 2 veggies were spinach and butternut – the best steak accompaniments right? and our chips were ♥shaped – all hand cut and prepared by little ol’ moi 🙂
Seriously though, can we just take a moment and look at these potatoes… Lop actually asked me where I found a place that sold ♥shaped chips!!!! I would so buy them ready cut next time because they took ageesssss to prepare 🙂 Worth it when I saw his smile of appreciation and awe…. of me haha!
It was the best valentines – going to be hard to beat next year, I hope lop is taking notes 🙂
I was pretty darn impressed with myself…
What’s that? Wife of the year??? oh you’re too kind 😉
