Valentines Dinner for Two

I think we celebrate every holiday here with food!  We chose to stay home and fix our own special Valentines Dinner this year.  We put a tv in our sons room so he and the girls could watch a movie and eat their pizza. (quite a treat here - frozen pizza and pop. lol!)  Put the baby to bed, and then fixed dinner together.   I was in charge of setting the table, Dave found a great station on Pandora (Harry Connick Jr.!) and even the gas fireplace cooperated and came on just as our main course was ready!  It was a relaxing evening...  quiet, no waiting, easy cleanup.  Wonderful!

Our Menu:

Tossed green salad with avocado 
Broiled Steak
Shrimp Scampi
Baked Potato w/ sour cream & butter
Cherry Cream Soda

Dessert would have been Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream, but we were too full to enjoy it, so we saved it for the next day!

Here are a few pictures of our evening. :)

Country Mushroom Soup

If you don't already do these little dinner's for just the two of you, give it  a try for date night sometime!  It is a lot of fun!  (and if you have little ones, you don't need a sitter if you don't mind waiting until their bedtime for dinner)


  1. That looks delicious. I'm thinking it's time for a dinner like that.
