Standing in line at the local drug or big box store the day before Valentine’s Day, holding a heart-shaped box of mass-produced chocolate candies and a card with poorly written sentiments is NOT the way to win your love’s heart! With a little planning and creativity, you can win at Valentine’s Day this year. All it takes is a little inspiration, and someone who can execute the perfect romantic dinner for two!
So, how is all this going to happen, you may ask? How do I plan, shop, and cook for this romantic dinner? Believe it or not, you don’t need to do anything, it’s as easy as a simple phone call to make it all happen. And the best part about this plan, is that the sky’s the limit as far as the menu, timing, and delivery goes. If you want to impress your Valentine this year, here are some ideas for what to serve and how to do it.
One of the most popular menus for a romantic dinner for two (and it doesn’t have to be just for Valentine’s Day) is a surf-and-turf. A combination of seafood and beef is always sure to please because it provides something for everyone. Things like crab cakes, salmon, or shrimp can be paired with filet mignon, beef wellington, or prime rib cooked to perfection go beautifully together. Simple side dishes like roasted potatoes, julienne carrots or roasted asparagus are the perfect complement to delicate main courses. Even Lobster or crab bisque soups or Risotto with your favorite fish, like shrimp, lobster, or scallops can add just enough warmth and romance to any dinner for two. Any of these main courses paired with the right wine, or even champagne, are a sure bet for this Valentine’s Day.
We would never forget dessert, so a decadent serving of chocolate lava cake, or even apple cobbler served warm with ice cream are very popular finishing touches. Chocolate dipped strawberries, or even a berry tart can work beautifully with flavors, textures, and color to serve for dessert. And if your sweetheart is sensitive to any ingredients, or is watching their weight, a beautiful fruit arrangement or other light-style dessert can be provided.
