Valentine Dinner

When Bob cooks, it is heaven on a plate.

We were treated to the most scrumptious dinner. At home. In our own beautiful dining room. Considering Ashley just finished a 12 hour shift and hadn't eaten since early Wednesday, we were so happy to be in the comfort of our own home.

Bob started us out with a wonderful fish dish. Fresh sea scallops cooked perfectly on top of a heart shaped toast point was served along with champagne. Fresh crumbled bacon and balsamic vinegar (a gift from Ashley when she studied in Italy) embellished the plate.

Next was a fresh spinach salad with fresh slices of parmesan cheese and homemade dressing. Look at those perfect hard boiled egg slices and the chunky croutons. mmmm.

Our third course was shrimp cocktail served in stemless martini glasses. Shrimp cocktail is a family favorite!

The dinner course was a filet mignon served on sourdough toast, wrapped in Burger's bacon (made in the town where I work)and topped with grilled bourbon onions. Along side were the Pioneer Woman's green beans and quinoa with fresh vegetables. Notice the heart shaped parmesan cheese heart cracker!

For dessert we had brie en croute served with a fresh pear slice, an apple slice, a few purple grapes and a chocolate covered strawberry.

To end our delightful meal, Bob served us his famous limoncella. It is a refreshing end to a meal!

And..... he's downstairs cleaning up and letting me post this on our blog. What a truly wonderful guy he is!
