(Re-scheduled Valentines Day) Here’s what I came up with!

Steak and Cilantro Shrimp with Golden Beets and Beet Greens

Surf -n- Turf!

Steak, (Christmas dinner prime rib was too big so I froze a thick slice) cilantro lime shrimp, golden beets and beet greens, with Gabbiano Promessa Pinot Grigio for him and La Vielle Ferme Rose’ for me!

I couldn’t believe my husband found perfect golden beets in February with perfect greens attached!

And for dessert…

Dove chocolate drizzled strawberries and raspberries with a sparkling Moet Chandon Rose’.

I combine half milk and half dark chocolate Dove promises and melt them with about 1/4 tsp of coconut oil for mouthwatering drizzled berries. Those candy chocolate flavored melts just won’t do! Sometimes I’ll use milk and dark chocolate Hershey Bars. I melt the chocolate in a small dry cup, actually, I use an expresso mug, in the microwave in 20-10-second increments stirring with a dry spoon after each increment until it’s warm and the chocolate starts to melt. If you heat it up too quickly or introduce any moisture, the chocolate will turn a weird color and never melt. At that point, it’s seized up and goes right into the garbage. The coconut oil keeps the chocolate slightly pliable so it doesn’t crack off when you bite into it.
