So for Valentine’s Day this year I decided to forgo the fancy restaurant and cook my lady a fancy meal at Chez Brian 353.
I asked around for some good meal tips and my lovely mother suggested Lamb. I had never even tasted lamb but it sounded classy and more likely to impress than chicken pot pie.
While at a church meeting on Thursday a member told me that he is a retired chef, so i picked his brain on the best way to cook up some lamb and what sides would go best with it. I took his advice and my mom’s, did a little homework and was ready to jump on it.
Well Saturday I rolled down to the grocery store, picked up the food and ingredients and got ready to do the dang thang.
On the Valentine’s Day Menu that evening was:
Ham and Cheese Puffs
- French Seasoned, oven-roasted rack of Lamb
- Red Roasted potatoes
- steamed green beans, broccoli and califlower blend veggies
- Parisian bread with the seasoned olive oil dip
- Shiraz-Merlot wine
- Fresh baked Red Velvet cupcakes
A fine meal cooked with love so you know it tasted like the bomb diggity.
We dined to a soundtrack of her favorite songs and took the party to the home theater to watch her favorite movie.
That’s how you do Valentines Day,
