ROMANTIC DINNER: Seared Fillet Mignon, topped with Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions, accompanied with Shaved Asiago-Roasted Cauliflower and White Wine Cilantro Sauce
What to do for St. Valentine’s, flowers? Diamonds? Nah! Food? Yeah! Dinner doesn’t get any more romantic than this. Of course, you can throw a lobster tail to the mix for surf and turf and that will make it even better. In fact, hold the lobster, not needed now.
Instead, get a bottle of Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon; great wine always seals the deal!
