Valentine's Day is here once again and that means it's also Feast of Love time in 'Rooville! This year did not disappoint. There was lots of yummy eats, wine and the house to ourselves.

The menu I made for The Boy was jumbo tiger shrimp served with a chipotle cocktail sauce; arugula and baby spinach salad topped with pomegranate seeds and goat cheese tossed in a maple dijon vinaigrette; lobster ravioli fra diavolo; and herb roasted rack of lamb served with stuffed portobello caps topped with smoked mozzarella and cumin roasted baby potatoes. He seemed to enjoy everything; he even ate the leftovers for lunch the next day.

I was treated to bruschetta on grilled flatbread; Tuscan bean soup; and chicken parmigiana served with tortelinni in spinach pesto, gnocchi in portobello goat cheese alfredo and linguine in tomato pancetta arabiatta. All my favorite dishes in one meal. Divine!

Dessert was supposed to be Choco-Hoto Pots served with fresh berries and whipped cream but we were too full to eat them. Gee, I wonder why?
