Valentine's Day Dinner

Frank and I dined at my apartment for Valentine's Day dinner so we could spend the evening cooking and eating a mighty fine dinner without the usual restaurant crowds. As this picture shows we began the meal with a traditional Shrimp Cocktail with a glass of Chandon Brut Sparkling Wine - a nice combination. 

The appetizer was followed by a Frank-created modified Greek salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, a large block of Feta Cheese, all topped with Frank's version of Tzatziki dressing. This was a tasty salad which Frank will have to add to his Salad repertoire.

Next up was our entree - Filet Mignon with a blue cheese cream sauce. The filet was prepared perfectly - a seared exterior and a red rare center. OMG was that delish. Can you say 'YUMMY'. I prepared the steaks while Frank roasted some thin Asparagus spears. It was the perfect accompaniment.

We finished the dinner with 'purchased' eclairs for dessert. It was a nice, relaxing evening as we would prepare one course, serve and eat it before moving on to the next course. It gave us time to enjoy the food and the wine. We selected a St. Supery "Elevation" to serve with the entree, a very good match.

That's all I'm saying.
