So this year, we've decided to celebrate Vday as if it's a family celebration. My kids didn't know any better anyway. The were bugging me from the night before, "mommy, what will be dinner tomorrow?!" So I said, what the heck, let it be a special dinner for six. My loving hubby, moi, my boys, my sister and my kid's nanny.
For the kids and the kids at heart, it's heart-shaped personalized pizza and spaghetti carbonara. For the 18ers (yes, that's when my age stopped!), bruschetta topped with simple chopped tomatoes and basil drizzled with balsamic vinegar, basil, a little bit of salt and pepper and yes, shavings of parmegiano regiano and of course one of my fave, caprese.
For a heavier treat, T-bone steak topped with mushroom gravy. For Dessert, heart-shaped chocolate cake, topped with ice cream ball with magic chocolate shell....
It was a lovely evening indeed, just what everyone need after a loooong day at work... family time with good food... just PERFECT!
