No offense to my restaurant-owning friends, but I'd never eat out on Valentine's Day. Too darn crowded. Our tradition is a February 14 dinner at home. It doesn't get much simpler than this.
A nice Spanish red table wine.
Romaine, tangerines, and fennel with a spicy blue cheese vinaigrette.
One of our favorite pasta dishes, roquefort, fennel, and walnuts with farfalle pasta.
The recipe is from a great little cookbook called While The Pasta Cooks: 100 Simple Sauces You Can Make While The Pasta Cooks. Recommend!
For dessert, a valentine exchange and a couple of episodes of Downton Abbey. A simple dinner at home.
That's what we're having.
