Valentine Day Dinner Plans?
I'm planning a special, romantic dinner for hubby and myself tonight. We are avoiding going out for financial reasons (son's wedding coming up this summer), and we are somewhat limited by it being a worknight for him (I have the day off) and his kung fu class later this evening. So can't be too heavy.
So here's my plan: I've bought 6 Malapeque oysters to shuck and eat raw as appetizers. Then a bag of PEI mussels to steam in butter and white wine sauce. Usually this would be accompanied by lots of white bread for sauce-sopping, but I have found that eating the broth with a soup spoon is just as yummy. Nice salad with avocado and an oil and vinegar dressing. We're not dessert eaters, so there's no dessert planned. I have a 90% Lindt bar in reserve if I need a wee bite, but hubby won't care at all.
Who else has a special supper planned? Let's share ideas...
