Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day...yeah, I know it's late but really I have a almost 5 month old baby, I can't always be on time. Stephen and I had a Valentine's Day weekend instead of just a day, because really, one day? Nah, we go big, the whole weekend.

Ok, sorry I got distracted. So some hi-lights of the weekend are Tai Ruby (the best Tai food EVER!), going to see Tron, my flowers and making dinner with Stephen. We're pretty poor students so I don't get flowers too often but Stephen goes all out for Valentine's Day. I love my husband! We also made dinner together, which is not something that we get to do often. It was SO much fun to crowd in our small kitchen and cook together, it reminds me of when we were dating and we would look up recipes and make them together.

My boys on Valentine's Day. Notice Will's shirt. Yes, I'm training him early to be a great husband :)

My BEAUTIFUL flowers!

Our delicious dinner! Fillet Mignon with balsamic sauce, mushroom risotto, and garlic asparagus, mmmm, yummy!

What a cute hubby. And what a GORGEOUS baby!! I cannot get over that cutie. I think you should post your dinner recipe! The part I'm the most interested in--and it's probably the most simple part, but I'm no chef so I don't know--is the garlic asparagus. I love asparagus but have a hard time getting my family to eat it. How do you do yours?

I usually blanch it in boiling salted water for about 2 minutes then shock it in ice water and then I saute it in butter and garlic slices. It sounds hard but it is actually pretty simple.

Sian, this "simple" little process makes me think you are a total gourmet! How did I not know this about you? I have never even heard of blanching or shocking food. I will try this process next time and let you know how it goes. In the meantime, maybe you should work on some food posts. I would love to learn more of your secrets!
