Thread: Our Valentine's dinner

  1. #1

    Our Valentine's dinner

    Grilled lobster tails have become the tradition at our house. We started with an antipasto consisting of artichoke hearts, olives, pearl onions, some cheese cubes, and a couple of pieces of salami cut into wedges. This was drizzled with a little extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. A light grating of Parmesan finished it. With the lobster tails I made some couscous with toasted pine nuts. The veggie was steamed asparagus. We had a bottle of a German Liebfraumilch (Blue Nun) which is what we had on our first Valentine's Day date after we became an item at Pitt. I cannot believe it is still only about $8.00 a bottle. All in all it was very nice, light fare that fits the holiday.

    The Blue Nun! lol Sweet! Happy Valentine's Day!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Yes, Blue Nun is a pretty sweet wine. I remember when my parents used to drink it sometimes back in the 1950s...

    You have to admit that Blue Nun has staying power. Maybe that is why my wife and I will be celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this year. There are a lot of 50 era wineries that are no longer around.

    Yes your lovely wife is very lucky to have you! Sounds like a delish dinner you put together! I had pub food and then went to the casino and won $700 bucks! All in all a great night for me as well.
