Is your heart all a flutter? Mine is, just thinking about my two funny Valentines does that to me. This year Little GG and I are on our own and since her taste buds run more to mac and cheese than do mine, I’m dreaming up my ideal Valentine’s Day dinner instead.
I’d start with the steakhouse steaks I featured a few weeks ago as part of the SoCal Lady Bloggers virtual dinner. And with San Diego wet with rain, an indoor dish sounds perfect (although I was at the beach Sunday and grilled out Saturday…don’t go thinking we’ve got tons of rain down here!).
Then I’d add either these french fries or these fancy roasted potatoes – either way, potatoes for sure. I’d probably throw in some asparagus, just to be green, but honestly, I could eat meat and potatoes and be done with it.
Mr. Gonzo has ordered some fabulous wines lately, but I’d still prefer my toast to be of the Champagne variety, particularly the one we drank the night we got engaged: Veuve Clicquot.
And while dessert doesn’t make me swoon, I wouldn’t say no to a truffle or two. Or maybe I can get Little GG to whip up some chocolate cupcakes. After all, the Valentines who cook together, stay together. Happy Valentine’s Day!
