Be My Valentine.

For our first Valentine celebration in, we went for a menu of all new-to-us items. In case you’re looking for new recipes, we enjoyed goat cheese & asparagus pizza (with dough fresh from the Public Market), blue cheese crusted filet mignon with port wine sauce (all Adam), and oreo truffles/nutter butter cake balls for dessert (for the latter I did a mix of milk/dark chocolate). We also picked up a bottle of dessert wine we’ve been lusting after since summer from Kafevino ($20, which is not too ridiculous, but we needed a reason to splurge! And they gave away massive, tuxedo-chocolate-covered strawberries with our purchase!) and an assortment of yummy cheeses. Celebrating early allowed us to take our time cooking and relax. I’ve enjoyed dining out for the occasion in the past, so certainly am not dissing it, but avoiding a fixed menu and reservation was nice this weekend.

I’ll deem our in-apartment festivities a win. And we got to catch up on Chuck, which is always a good thing. Three cheers for Chuck & Sarah!
