Come Party With Me: Romantic Valentine's Day Dinner - Menu

Come Party With Me: Romantic Valentine's Day Dinner - Menu

Only 8 short days to the most romantic day of the year and I am in the middle of planning a super special dinner for two. Soft music, dim lights, lacy clothes, red hearts, rose petals...the whole shebang. You know I love going all out and I take Valentine's Day (ok any holiday) very seriously. Even if I don't have a significant other, I'm planning this party for you. Follow my step-by-step, day-by-day instructions and next Wednesday you'll have one seductive, sexy, homemade, memorable meal with your lover. Yesterday I made your love note invitation and today I'm talking food. To indulge yourself (and your boy-toy) with my menu,

You can make this alone or with your man, but either way the food is savory, delightful, and to die for. Start the evening with a classic clam dish,
Clams Casino

, bite sized bits of scrumptious heaven that can be made ahead of time and will make your sweetheart's heart fill with love. Next mix an easy
Leafy Green Salad

filled with fresh herbs and dressed in a light lemony vinaigrette. Your main squeeze will fall in love all over again when he tastes the decadent main dish,
Petite Filet with Gorgonzola and Porcini Mushroom Sauce

Horseradish Mashed Potatoes

. He'll be expecting a typical super chocolatey dessert, so surprise him one last time (ok, you'll leave a few surprises for later in the bedroom, wink, wink) with a French variation of cheesecake,
Coeur a la Creme with Raspberries

(translation: cream heart).

My sweetheart will be out of town, so I am planning a special 'breakfast in bed' when he gets back... cuz that is where we plan to be all day! Breakfast will be a strawberry and cream cheese stuffed french toast with orange-butter. I was thinking of putting a twist on the mimosa and using pink grapefruit juice, any advice?

Sounds great, if I was the one doing the cooking. But lucky me, The Hubs is a fantastic chef so he does all the cooking.
