Lobster With a Twist

I’ve been hearing a resurgence of how important it is to have family dinner together. We do pretty well at this but I usually do the cooking and sitting down is not always at a relaxed pace. So, it was time for a special couple’s dinner together.
My husband and I decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day with a romantic dinner—lobster, candlelight, music—but with a twist. “Let’s stay home and cook together,” we decided. Our youngest was out on a date and we had the kitchen (and house) to ourselves. Two affordable lobster dinners coming up. It turned out to be fun. We ate lobster with clarified butter, rice-a-roni, asparagus with mushrooms and almonds, breadsticks, and heart-shaped fudge. We reminisced about our first date and enjoyed working together. A movie topped off the quiet evening last Saturday night.
What did you do for Valentine’s Day?
