My Sweet Valentine

Valentine's Day 004

This is one my favorite days of the whole year!

It has nothing to do with chocolates or flowers {not that I don't love getting them} that are a highlight of the special day.

On this special day, I'm given one of the greatest gifts ... a home cooked meal by my husband.

This is true love!

He creates a fabulous menu, shops for all the ingredients, cooks, and cleans the entire kitchen {this is a gift in and of itself!} while I sit back with a glass of wine and enjoy the show.

Valentine's Day 037

Our menu ~

Porterhouse steak with green peppercorn, garlic, and sun dried tomato butter

Lobster tails

Goat cheese mashed potatoes

Fresh green beans

Spinach salad with strawberries and a homemade vinaigrette

Valentine's Day 034

How can you not love a man who turns your strawberries into hearts?!

For dessert {as if dinner wasn't enough} we had Ina's brownie pudding with salted caramel gellato ... yum!

Valentine's Day 041

It was all amazing.

I'm a very lucky lady to have such a sweet hubby!

The greatest gifts are given from the heart ~ these are the ones that are priceless and will last a life time!

I think you forgot the lobster in the menu line up. Your husband made all of that? That is off the charts my friend.

I LOVE this creative idea! My kids LOVE braided bracelets!
