Valentines Day Wrap-UpPosted: February 15, 2010
Good Morning! It is Presidents Day so Nick an I are both off from work. I have plans for a vegetarian lunch in the city with a friend, LOTS of cleaning and then dinner with Nick’s family for his birthday. First I owe you a Valentine’s Day re-cap.
To start off I had way too many of these for breakfast.
I made Nick a Valentine’s Day brunch but all I could muster was a small amount of Oikos, blackberries and banana.
Our Valentine’s Day dinner was also a special dinner for Nick’s birthday week. He planned the menu. Buffalo strip steaks marinated in red wine, fresh green beans with balsamic mustard sauce, goat cheese potatoes au gratin. I also had a few glasses of wine through dinner.
And now for the best of the dinner!
Dessert! Personal tiramisu! Again by Nick’s request. I sort of made up my own recipe off some I researched on the web and I also simplified it.
- lady fingers (I used Madelines)
- pour Kailua and fresh brew coffee over cakes
- pour mixture of; marscapone cheese, brown sugar, regular sugar, more Kailua
- re layer one more time and sprinkle coco powder on top layer
Some times tiramisu calls for brandy but Nick loves Kailua so I just stuck with that. Most recipes also called for cream cheese, but I just used all mascarpone.
This was super yummy and really easy to make actually.
Nick and I finished out the Nick with a few more rounds of Band Hero and Zack Efron in 17 Again. It was a cute movie and Nick actually laughed at certain lines. It was a very successful easy Valentine’s Day meal and activities.
This morning I snapped a few more pics of my lilies.
Uncle Sam, TJs fiber, Kashi H2H, pear, orange cranberries, dried blueberries.
