If you know me well, you know I LOVE holidays! I just like celebrating and feeling full of life. So, when certain days come around, you can count on me doing my best to make them special. This year for V-Day, I decided to make Tyler his dinner instead of him taking me out. What prompted all this was walking into Target the other day and finding a whole bunch of cooking items (bakeware, candy molds, etc) and candles in the $1 bins! I decided I just couldn't pass it up! So I made steak, twice-baked potatoes with shrimp, green bean casserole, heart-shaped brownies and truffles (milk chocolate, amaretto, and raspberry). We also, of course, had Welch's Sparking Red Grape juice...it's a staple for us when celebrating as we've found neither of us are particularly thrilled with wine. I had to grill the steaks inside in my Wolfgang Puck reversible grill/griddle since we ran out of propane, but they still turned out great!
