February is the month of love and although Mr M and I don’t usually celebrate Valentine’s Day, I wanted to make something special for him as 2021 was definitely not a great year. Once upon a time, we would make a special dinner each Saturday, taking it in turns to be the chef. Unfortunately, life took over and our special dinners were pushed to the back burner.
At the start of 2022 we both decided to re-introduce the special dinner idea and I thought Valentine’s Day was the perfect excuse. The three-course menu wasn’t that difficult or time-consuming to make, however, I did make the dessert and the dough on the day before to save time.
I looked at a few ideas for the menu and then as I usually do, took a bit of this and a bit of that to put my own touch. You can find the recipes for each recipe by clicking on the links.
