    Share Your Valentine's Dinner

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    Show us your Valentine's meals ... what you cooked for your significant other ...

    Us? We had an amuse bouche of cauliflower stalk (the florets were used for "rice" in a previous meal), leek and spinach. Damn gorgeous. I dropped an asparagus head into each.



    Next, a starter ...

    My dear wife is not paleo, but she eats what I cook. I look after her dietary needs and get it right most of the time. She does ask for some foods now and again, and one she loves is Crab Linguine.

    Doing it right, I sourced some gluten-free linguine which is as good as wheat flour linguine. This linguine is made from cornstarch and rice flour. Paleo? I don't care - this was for my wife.

    I made up a mix of white crab meat, chillies and parsley to combine with the linguine and placed it back into a crab shell:



    ... and accompanied with a brown crab meat veloute.



    Butter and fish stock emulsified, brown crab meat dropped in, more stock, cooked, passed through a sieve, retrieved meat put back into the main linguine, cream added, reduced, done.

    Damn good!

    Main? Beef steak with asparagus:



    Local meat from that farm, there (points out of the window) from my local farm shop. Fcknggg amazing!

    I made up a butter, caper and parsley sauce to go with it. We shared a sirloin steak which was enough for us and a few cubes dropped down for our cats - rare, of course.

    Dessert? Panna Cotta. Cream set with gelatine. Easy.

    @pjgh WOW!!! Looks tasty.

    Me I'll make a T-Bone, or two, with chimichurri. A tossed salad and have some fruit for dessert.
    And the meek shall inherit the earth.
    What good is a used up world, and how could it be worth having?

    That sounds good Guod! Nothing like a slab of meat with something or other for dinner! Thanks for the kind words.

    ... looks like steaks were a favourite, but then ... steaks ARE a favourite!

    We tend to eat in the evenings. Often I simply skip breakfast, finding a good lunch and dinner works out best. Weekends, we like a good breakfast and a good evening meal. Evening meals are out modern communal campfire time.

    We had a lovely dry-aged ribeye, sauteed prawns, and a salad with homemade blue cheese dressing.
