Well – we don’t actually celebrate Valentine’s Day, so J and I got together with my sister, brother-in-law and our friend Rita, and used the day as an excuse to cook some really great food, that we may not normally buy.
This meal was amazing! I was looking forward to it all week, and it definitely lived up to expectations. 🙂 We had a great time – cooking, drinking yummy fruity champagne drinks, and playing some cards later in the evening.
Here’s what was on the menu:
Fruity Champagne & Brandy cocktails – my sister made these in a big pitcher – she muddled up some fruit, poured in the champagne and a few shots of brandy. So good!
Shrimp Cocktail – made with beer and Old Bay
Strip Steaks with Chive Butter and Brandy
Grilled Lobster Tail
Garlic Roasted Cauliflower
Cashew Rice Pilaf
Individual Peach Cobblers
