This afternoon, I finally sat down and constructed my Valentine’s Day meal plan. I’m kind of ridiculously excited to steal Mel’s
idea this year of having a little family candlelit dinner. I think the kids will be stoked.

There’s a restaurant in DC that structures all of its food around chocolate. I thought that would be a fun theme this year, so I came up with a little chocolate-inspired vegetarian Valentine’s menu.
No recipes, because these are all experiments. Experiments that are too nice/time consuming/pricey to test out twice in the same week, so you’ll be getting a full report after the fact. In the meantime, here’s what I’m planning:
Baked Citrus & Pine Nut Brie with Shaved Chocolate
Spinach/Pear/Cranberry/Pecan Salad with Feta and Chocolate Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette
Pasta di Cacao with Creamy Mushroom & Artichoke Sauce (inspiration
Roasted Beets with Cacao Nibs
Chocolate Lavender Fondue
What a fun idea!
So fun! Can't wait to hear about the end result!
Fun!! I started doing a nice dinner last year for Valentine's because Axel was only 3 weeks old, but also going out is just so crazy/expensive on the 14th. You can buy a lot of expensive food for the price of a moderately expensive meal at a restaurant. I can't wait to hear how these go!
