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.

so sorry we couldn't make babysitter for Kaedra until the nurse gets here anymore. :-( Hopefully we can do it sometime with you guys. Would you be interested in a pot luck over here? (after Michael is no longer working nights!)
