Valentine’s Day Dinner with Liz’s Parents
For Valentine’s Day, Liz and I had her parents over for a nice candlelight dinner.
The flowers (and really everything on the table) were set up by Liz. She’s been working on some centerpiece ideas for the wedding reception, and has been trying out several can/paper approaches.
In terms of prep, Liz was doing a lot to get everything set up. For my part, I spent most of the time in the kitchen and ended up doing all the cooking. For our dinner we had Turkey Parmesean, curried lentils, and green beans with mozarella and pine nuts.
All of the food, I might add, is South Beach friendly (we started back up on South Beach – it’s been about a week).
It was nice to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a group, and it felt good to have Liz’s parents over to our house for a meal. We’ve gone over to their home so many times (and we’ve eaten so well over there so many times), I was happy for the opportunity to return the favor.
