I was so nervous allllll day about cooking Valentine’s dinner. I had ambitious plans, and I needed to start cooking while at the same time making J-Man’s dinner and putting K-Dub to bed. Major stress.
On the menu:
- Lobster tails
- Corn & Alaskan Crab Chowder
- Potatoes with Herb Butter and Dill
And guess what… I nailed it!!! Okay, so the chowder was actually from Costco and I just had to warm it up. But I made the rest! I steamed the lobster tails in white wine. The potatoes I boiled, then tossed them in herb butter and fresh dill. Delicious!!!
Do you remember the “She’s your lobster” scene from Friends? Husband and I love that and associate lobsters with romance. 😉 Even though, apparently lobsters don’t really mate for life. Still cute to imagine them holding claws.
In addition to dinner, I was making Red Velvet Cupcakes using this recipe. I didn’t notice the recipe made THIRTY cupcakes. Doh. Anyone want a red velvet cupcake?
Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!
