Do you have plans yet for Valentine's day? Can I tell you about our best Valentine's date ever?
Two years ago, instead of going out for Valentine's Day, we put the kids to bed, stayed in and cooked together.
For the first time ever we cooked a lobster! We followed this Alton Brown Recipe for Stuffed Lobster. We had no idea what we were doing, and we loved every minute of it.
True confessions: While taking the photo above I was shrieking "Ah, it's moving!" To which my charming husband replied "Of course it's moving, dear. It's Alive."
We had Caesar salad and cheesy herb biscuits and lava cakes for dessert. Oh. my. word. I'm having deliciousness flashbacks!
We didn't need a babysitter. We didn't need reservations. It didn't even really cost that much.
But It was Romantic. And a little bit silly. We talked and laughed and enjoyed working together in the kitchen.
Oh, and after dinner we watched Star Trek. Because we are that particular brand of Awesome...
