Valentine's Day dinner

Hi Folks ~ Hope you had lovely Valentine's Day celebrations. We had a quiet evening at home, just the way we like it. The stuffed steak rolls cooked in the crockpot all day, and I made the Raspberry Tiramisu in the middle of the day. We had a nice margarita type drink (vermouth instead of tequila) with rosemary and olive oil crackers spread with cream cheese and a bit of anchovie in olive oil on top. Then we had a salad, and mashed potatoes and green beans with the steak rolls and gravy, and wine to drink. After dinner we had the Raspberry tiramisu. DH said it was decadent. :-)

It was a lovely dinner together and afterwards we felt like watching a movie, so went into our box of movies we found across the street on trash day, and came up with Blue Lagoon as our Valentine date movie. We had seen this when it first came out about 30 years ago, it was a sweet, romantic, innocent movie and a treat to see once again.

Steak rolls.

Lady fingers drizzled with raspberry liquour.

Mascarpone cheese with raspberry puree.

Heavy whipping cream, whipped.

Whipped cream added to the raspberry/cheese mixture.

Whipped cream on top, with sprinkles in a heart shape with whole raspberries.


Love is the expansion of two natures

in such fashion that each include the other,

each is enriched by the other.
