My Valentine's Day Dinner

by

Because my sweetie cooks for a living, I thought it would be nice to make him dinner for V-day. Here's what I made:

~ Prime, dry-aged New York strip, rare, with a rosemary-scented port, shallot and dried cherry sauce.

~ Crème fraîche mashed potatoes with a tiny bit of celeriac thrown in for good measure.

~ Vermont Butter & Cheese crottina

~ We were too full to eat it, but a mesclun salad with toasted Marcona almonds, apples, avocado, Bayley Hazen blue cheese and a sherry vinaigrette. That's the salad pre-apples and avocado.

~ Mirabelles Napoleans and Eclairs for dessert

My mashed potatoes were a little lumpy, but the steak came out just as I hoped, and everything tasted really good. I'll post the port sauce recipe tomorrow.

What did you eat for Valentine's Day?
