Saturday was Valentine’s Day. I was originally supposed to be out of town, but my trip got cancelled and so I decided to cook my husband a special dinner. I’ll show photos and post recipes beginning tomorrow, but today, I’ll just share with you what I fixed and show you the beautiful roses that my husband brought home to me that evening.
We started off the evening with Chocolate Raspberry Martinis. Our first course was Caprese Salad with a crusty baguette. The unique thing about this salad is that I made the Mozzarella. I decided to start with early with the Curds Our Whey cheesemaking group. For our main course, I made fresh pasta that was served with a Rabbit Ragu. Then for dessert, we had mousse-chocolate on the bottom, with strawberry on top. All served with a delicious Napa Valley wine from Sawyer Vineyards. We had our dinner next to the fireplace, so it was a nice romantic evening filled with good food and good company.
