Valentines Day Menu

Valentines Day has never been something we celebrate. Matt likes to say everyday is valentines day :) Sweet huh? Well this year I found some amazing new recipes and wanted to make them for my sweetheart.  

We went out to a great local Carribean restaurant in Auburn Joe Caribe on a date a couple days before February 14th. If your in the area I would go for sure. I had the yellow curry chicken and Matt had the Jambilaya.

For our romantic Valentines Dinner we stayed in and here's what I made. My mouth is watering just looking at the pictures!! 

First Course: Salad 
I kept it simple spinach, carrots, feta and this dressing I have been loving lately. 

  • 1/4 cup vinegar (red wine or apple cider) whatever you like
  • 1 tbsp mustard 
  • Garlic and onion powder 
  • 3/4 cup avocado oil (costco sells it now...yay) 

Main Course:  
  • Filet Mignon with Red Wine Sauce (courtesy of Martha) 
  • Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes
  • Roasted Balsamic Vegetables 


Aren't these adorable. They were so easy and AMAZING!! 
The espresso powder in them adds such an awesome dimension. I will now add it to everything chocolate. I did over cook them a bit but it wasn't bad. 

I hope you had a super sweet Valentines Day with your sweetheart!
