It’s Valentine’s Day! I’m not really a fan of going out to a restaurant on the actual day. It’s usually crowded and a bit overpriced. I do like cooking a nice meal for my hubby (and me). The truth is, even if you are celebrating with a group of friends, Valentine’s Day is a chance to treat yourself as well.
A few days ago, I saw a blog post on The Foodie Physician about cooking a romantic dinner for your sweetheart. Her menu of Filet Mignon with Pomegranate Dijon Sauce and Roasted Asparagus and Grape Tomatoes with Balsamic and Pecorino sounded fantastic! So I decided to make it too. In addition to those two, I decided to make another side dish — Roasted Beets with Feta — since I had them in the refrigerator and had been wanting to do something with them. I thought since beets are red they would go well for Valentine’s Day.
I made some changes to her recipes based on personal preferences and also what I had on hand. If you want to see The Foodie Physicians original recipes click on the link above.
I’m happy to say that I got rave reviews from my hubby! He said “now that’s a keeper” meaning I should make it again.
