My Fantasy Valentine’s Day Menu

I love to cook.  But since I started training for my competition, my meals have certainly not been very exciting (hello chicken and brown rice!), and my “treat meals” have been mostly enjoyed out at restaurants.

What’s even sadder is that T got me a gorgeous KitchenAid mixer for Christmas, which I had been lusting after forever, and I haven’t even used it yet!

Hey, beautiful. I owe you a date 🙂

So is it crazy that I’ve been fantasizing about cooking up a big delicious meal for me and my sweetheart?  If I had my ways, here’s what I’d be in the kitchen making on Valentine’s Day…

Valentine’s Day Menu for Two:

Appetizer:

Panko-Crusted Crab Cake Bites with Roasted Pepper-Chive Aioli

Salad:

Frisee and Green Apple Salad with Goat Cheese Toasts

Entree:

Mama’s Meatballs and Menden’s marinara sauce, served over fresh spaghetti noodles

Side:

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter

Dessert:

Naughty Ice Cream Sandwiches (omg!!)

Wine:

Layer Cake Malbec

Do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day?  Are you planning a night out with your sweetheart, a cozy night in, or a fun night out with the girls?

If you try any of these recipes, please let me know!
