Sharing a Little Valentine Romance
We had a little Valentine get together low carb style. It was more fun than going out to a steakhouse only to have to send away those incredible smelling rolls and those decadent desserts. We had just as elegant a menu...and a private dining room too! Our friends Gary and Denise joined us. We had a wonderful time.
My son Christian served as a waiter. The evening menu John and I prepared consisted of petite, bacon wrapped steaks, Spinach Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette, and Rutabaga Au Gratin. Denise brought along Baked Cauliflower and green beans with bacon. For a dessert that rivaled any restaurant, I made Chocolate Kahlua Mousse. Everyone loved it.
The candlelight was beautiful--only the light was too low for my pictures to turn out well. I'll add a pic even though it is a bit blurry. Most of the recipes were in the February 24/7 Low Carb Diner newsletter. Next month, I will be publishing some snack recipes, so get your orders in. It is available on the website.
