But really a nice rare steak and some broiled prawns oh baby...

I am making broiled lobster tails and NY steak, baked potatoes and salad. Cooking at home saves so much money and the food is better too.

Naw, the appetizer would be a single shared lobster tail with two individual sauce bowls of differently herbed butter for dipping and stealing a taste from your dinner partner. For the entree, the rose petal sauce from Like Water For Chocolate for either medium rare duck or cornish hens:

Rose Petal Sauce for Hens - All Recipes

A dessert "appetizer" would be simple, like strawberries and champagne. Finish with a deep fried ice cream ball and Mexican coffee, cinnamon-laced.

If I were home, I'd make boiled lobster and some other red foods, like red velvet cake, etc. But the DH would need to plunge the lobsters in the pot for me, thus giving him the opportunity to respond to a damsel's distress.

Moules mariniere (mussels steamed in white wine) as a special gift to DH - I don't like mussels. French bread to sop up the juices. I don't plan to cook too much else, just pick up a variety of delicious antipasti at the gourmet market so we can graze like contented love cows while we enjoy a nice Sunday at home.

Can't stand restaurants on Valentine's Day, it simply feels way too contrived that I can't relax.

Nothing like grazing on fantastic appetizers with a few drinks followed by dark chocolate truffles and all at home.

We are planning on some King Crab legs, NY steak, twice-baked potatoes, and steamed asparagus. I have everything but the crab, so we are going out to get some tomorrow morning. We might try some baked chocolate fudge for dessert.
