This Valentine’s Day I wanted to relax and not spend all my time in the kitchen, but I still wanted to eat well and we did not want to try and eat out.
Today we are having a late lunch of steak and salad. Later we will have snacks and finger foods – sharp cheddar, pepper jack, black olives, strawberries, popcorn, etc.
The steaks are amazingly quick and easy and when paired with just the salad, not too heavy. Plus, we’re eating our biggest meal early enough that it won’t make us sleepy for the rest of the evening.
I am pairing a shiraz with the steaks and pinot grigio with the snacks.
We also have individual, heart shaped chocolate cakes (I very rarely do desserts). These were a last minute thing from the grocery store.
