Valentine's Day 2011

Mr. Incredible and I continued our tradition of cooking a fancy dinner at home together on Valentine's Day this year.  (*Note- 'fancy' is a very relative term... it means anything other than something made by Costco or the typical grilled chicken whatever we usually eat)

Here's a few photo details of our night:

First, there were beautiful orchids (that I will invoke the help of God to keep alive) waiting for me when I got home:

Then on to dinner- baked asparagus with parmesan cheese:

Our main course: Spicy Orange Garlic Shrimp... but we had to take all of this off of the shrimp first (Note: totally worth spending the extra $5/lb to have someone do this for you!)

We used this recipe and it was delicious (next time I'll go a little lighter on the Cayenne pepper but Austin likes things HOT)!

And for dessert we went with creme brulee... a very time consuming dessert but so much better in heart-shaped ramekins!

And Mr. Incredible got to use the blow torch... in the kitchen!
