This Valentines Day my Mamma and Step Dad had us over for a fancy steak dinner. This was the best idea ever! I love sitting around the table with the people I LOVE. Dinner parties ROCK!
Hubby and I decided to get all dressed up. I rarely wear heals and eyeliner so I have to take every chance I can get. I am a "girly" girl at heart 🙂
Can you believe I have had these heals for almost 3 years and have NEVER worn them?!
On the menu: ribeye steaks sautÃ©ed mushrooms twice baked potatoes, salad, red velvet cake, and chocolate covered strawberries. Oh yes I almost forgot the wine 🙂
I made a lighter twice baked potato. I will share the recipe soon.
Mom made the steaks
Aunt Memory and Mike made the salad 🙂
Roses say love, don’t you think 😉
Everyone brought reds.
My step Dad got this fancy Wine Aerator, it was a lot of fun to use.
We brought one of my favorite Cabs. I enjoyed a glass or two.
Mama in the kitchen.
All the food was to die for. I only ate 1/4 of my steak, but every bite was amazing!
I can’t wait to share this potato recipe with all of you!
I ate two bowls of the salad. Dried Cranberries, Blue Cheese, Candied Pecans, and Pear dressing. One happy salad!
Then this bad boy came out.
This isn’t just a regular cake, this is RED VELVET cheesecake!!!!!
+ chocolate covered strawberries!!!!
I ate it all 🙂
Love was in the air.
All you need is love.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
We were out way past this girls bedtime so I woke up SUPER LATE(for me) this morning (8am). But I still managed to make a killer omelet with leftovers from our build your own pizza night!!!
In the Mix:
- 3 eggs
- two sun dried tomatoes
Piled on top:
- 1/4 avocado
I have to day off and have no real plans….we shall see how productive it is 🙂
Question: When was the last time you hosted a fancy dinner party?
Todayâ€™s Love Dare
"Choose a way to show honor and respect to your spouse that is above your normal routine. It may be holding the door for her. It might be putting his clothes away for him. It may be the way you listen and speak in your communication. Show your mate that he or she is highly esteemed in your eyes."
P.S. Were puppy sitting for a friend. Say hello to Hurley 🙂
