What's on the menu? Dining out or cooking at home? Whet our appetites.
We never go out on Valentine's Day or Mothers Day. It's so crowded and crazy that I can't enjoy myself. Will probably be cooking a roast. Probably prime rib. I have a fond memory of our first Valentine's Day, I made steak with mushroom risotto. It's going to be way too cold to fire up the grill this weekend so a roast will do.
I have two venison hearts in the freezer so I'm thinking of heart and kidney pie. My take on that English classic steak and kidney pie. Yes it's going to be a very cold weekend.
I will be drinking whiskey... alone. That counts, right?
My wife will be in Phoenix assisting her sisters in cleaning out their father's place. He passed away a week before Christmas. We will celebrate some other day. My love for her is not tied to the calendar.
Maybe dine out, maybe a lobster risotto, or a salmon roulade with bearnaise, or ...
Drink champagne and eat CAKE! Life is short.
I may play around with strawberries this weekend, since I've been saving this for a while. (No Cool Whip, though.)
My condolences. Sorry to hear it.
Trying to make the perfect Croissants for the morning, then making Bouillbaisse for dinner.
Sign me up. You had me at croissant There's a little cafe that serves up Red Velvet pancakes with mascarpone topping called jinkys.com. Be still my heart.
My husband plans dinner and date for us on each valentine. Actually, we also have marriage anniversary on valentine day so this is a really special day for me.
I'll just enjoy my beer.. alone..
...and here are the results
Brunch was simple - grits with eggs and cheese, served with bacon and crostini.
I run a refrigerator van rental business in Vaughan Ontario. Our vans are new and we only used top of the line reefer units. If you call and mention chef talk I'll automatically offer corporate pricing and unlimited reefer time. Our vans also have standby and can operate from +25 to -25. Call and book. 905-532-0101
A bit of sun came out today so it was time to get a bit of color on my Sous Vide pork ribs. I had them in the water bath for 24 hrs at 160 degrees. I then finished them on the grill. Served with Cole slaw, corn bread honey and butter and ranch beans........Not a bad meal for all my Valentines in my house......
Souse vide just out of the water bath.
These are falling apart.
finished on the grill
Time for dinner
Prepping for next year
You need to bring me a belly from one of those next time you come over.
Our neighbor roasted a turkey for compound dinner so I made a Spanish inspired stuffing as a side. Lardon, Spanish chorizo, jalapeno cornbread, french bread, grass fed beef chorizo, dried chili, mire poix and a blend of stocks that I infused with garlic, chocolate and cinnamon. It was quite delicious.
We had a simple eye round roast, dry brined for 24hrs then seared and roasted in a very low oven. There was jus as well but it doesn't look nice in a picture.
Cheesecake for dessert, with ladyfinger crust
Great looking food everyone!
@Koukouvagia gorgeous roast!
@ChefBillyB I will say it again... the PNW is on my bucket list... we will give buba a call and have a party.
I am gazing at my road atlas right now and dreaming of a nice cool summer break...the only drawback would be giving up the beach rental we have booked for June and July.
As for my fisherman and I... we had takeout Chinese as he is in the middle of a bedroom remodel.
I did make my awesome "crack" brownies.
They are so good and still a one bowl dessert.
