Valentines Day 2015
everyone knows food is the fastest way to a woman's panties...
for the past few v-days, i've "surprised" lolo with a 3 or 4 course meal with wine/champagne pairings, in lieu of going out to a nice dinner and overpaying for a crappy pre fixe menu (i say "surprise" because she knows we're staying in and having a romantic meal... she just doesn't know what the courses will be, etc.)
this year, i've been mulling a few options and decided to get some of my bougie brethren's opinions...
first course: i'm thinking about doing this super-rich brie and champagne fondue with bread and apple wedges. another idea is gouda-stuffed fried squash blossoms.
second course: lolo loves salads with fruit in them, so i was thinking of making an arugula, pear and cherry tomato salad with a simple vinaigrette. i might add some cheese too.
third course: this is where i'm stuck... i can't decide between scallops, grilled ribeye, or some kind of whole roasted fish that we can share. sides will probably be roasted veggies of some kind.
fourth course: i'm just gonna get her the carvel v-day ice cream cake because she's made it very apparent that she wants it more than flowers, chocolates or any of that other crap. and if a $10 ice cream cake will make her get naked later, who am i to say the nay-no?
