valentine's day menu

Valentine's day is tomorrow. Are you a lover or a hater of this holiday? I'll say that I fall right in between. My husband and I don't really make a big deal of it. We actually avoid going out to dinner that night. It's just too crazy. Way too many people out and about and restaurants are packed.

So this year, I decided that I was going to cook a nice meal for my man. I'm the one that normally cooks at our house, so me cooking is not big news. BUT this menu is a little more labor intensive and we will be eating it in our dinning room with no TV on for a change. Plus, I've been wanting to use my new placemats from CB2 and this is the perfect excuse!

All of the recipes that I picked are new so it will be an adventure. If any of them suck, I will let you know. Here is the game plan.

Dessert: Cupcakes 
(I'm actually buying the cupcakes already made to save some time. But here is a recipe that looks super yummy.)

What are your plans? Any go to recipes for special occasions?
