We never go out on Valentines - too much chaos out there to really enjoy ourselves. So I'm working on my menu and I'm thinking of doing an beef short rib with gnocchi and an apple tart. I've never made any of these dishes before. If anyone has good methods and tips I'm open. Plus I need some sort of veggie or salad, something green. I'm mostly worried about the gnocchi, I've only eaten them once and have never made them before. Can I make them ahead of time in the morning and cook later? And then I can toss them with the short ribs sauce or do they get their own dressing?
