We always cook at home - going out is horrible on Valentines Day. We usually do steak and lobster too, but it will depend on what they have when we go to the store this weekend. I might do steak and shrimp instead since they've had some decent shrimp lately. Regardless of the meal, I like to put flowers and candles on the table to make it romantic! Oh and some kind of chocolate for dessert.

I like the steaks on the grill idea. We haven't had steak in a while so it would be the perfect treat! Thanks for the idea.

Default What are you cooking for your Valentine?

I'm making his favorite meal of steak, baked potato, and wedge salad. A few chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.
I could do better, but not on a week night.

I'll prepare stove Scallops in a pan with a safran sauce. A chardonay would pair perfectly but my wife prefers a Gewurztraminer "vieille vigne" it's a sweet wine.
For the desert I'm cooking a sort of Key lime pie (without the Key lime unfortunately).

We are supposed to go the friends for dinner, but the weather might change out minds for us. If so, I might throw a steak on, but we really had our big meal yesterday. We celebrated our daughter and son in law moving up here, hubby's bd and I guess valentines day all at once. We had lolbster tails, bacon wrapped scallops, shrimp stuffed with crab meat and a wonderful salad.

Nothing, we're going out. More as a celebration for my SO nearing the end of the CPA exams than for Valentine's Day...he takes the second-to-last of the tests tomorrow afternoon.

Last year, I made polenta with grilled vegetables and marinara, and red velvet cake. This year, I made heart-shaped sugar cookies, but am not doing dinner.

DH requested hamburgers. I'll probably do salad on the side and try to make him a chocolate dessert.
