Valentine's Day came late in the Stitt this year. I was sick for 2 weeks and then the boy wasn't feeling well so our annual feast was delayed by almost a month. We finally celebrated this evening.

This is our 10th year of our tradition so we decided to have a "Best Of" edition where we could choose what we wanted to be served from past menus, still serving different appetizers, main courses and a shared dessert.

I feasted on appetizers of Grilled Flatbread Bruschetta, Fried Goat Cheese and Mixed Green Salad with Balsamic Champagne Mustard Dressing. My main course was Rosemary Goat Cheese Stuffed Organic Chicken with a Wild Mushroom Sauce served with Spinach Pesto Tortellini.

For the boy, I prepared appetizers of Fried Crab Wonton Ravioli served with a Sweet Thai Chilli Sauce and Arugula, Avocado, Smoked Salmon and Toasted Hazelnut Salad with a Balsamic Champagne Mustard Dressing. His main course was Sesame Seared Tuna with Wasabi Ponzu Sauce served with Peas, Shallots and Prosciutto, and Orange Scented Almond Couscous.

Desert for the both of us was Choco-Hoto Pots served with whipped cream and fresh raspberries.

Everything as usual was decadent and delicious. We think next year we will drop the appetizers though and simply have different main courses and a shared dessert. It's simply too much food and we always have leftovers for days. I guess this means we are getting old!
