Love = Crustacians

 Let's just cut to the chase; every woman really loves Valentine's day because it provides us with a great excuse to eat a lovely and romantic (read, unhealthy) meal.

You were all thinking it, I just said it.

So here was the menu from Hotel Goodwin last night to celebrate the occasion:

Artichokes with garlic butter
Roasted Broccoli
Twice Baked Stuffed Potatoes
Red Velvet Cupcakes

Mr. G and I collaborated over dinner.  He made the lobsters and chilled the champagne.  I did the rest.  

I don't have any before pictures of the food because we were too excited to start eating.

But here is the after.
Yes, we drink our champagne out of mason
jars.  And yes we ate our fabulous feast at
our coffee table so we could watch "Princess Bride."


The artichokes were divine.  The lobster was the sweetest lobster ever.  The twice baked 'taters were cheesy and delicious.  The roasted broccoli was perfect. The red velvet cupcakes were velvety (?!).

'Twas a dinner that dreams are made of.

Mr. G and I moaned in ecstasy throughout the entire messy meal.
No really.  We are creeps.

And then...

And then I could no longer contain myself, as I have no recollection of ever having a meal so good.

So I danced like I had just scored the winning touchdown in a super bowl game.
(And Mr. G was a peach and caught it all on camera.)

If you had dinner at home last night don't you dare
pretend that you also did not wear your most comfy

I hope you all had a fantastic Valentine's day (aka a delicious and decadent midweek meal).



  1. Get down on it Granny! I'm glad you guys had a great VDay. We ate in our PJs too! We did listen to schmaltzy music, but did not get any high kick dance moves in. There's always next year...

  2. Sounds way better than my turkey sandwich! Fortunately I had a cupcake to top it off :)
