What are you all cooking for your beautiful wives this valentines day? I want to do something amazing but I haven't settled on anything yet and am running out of time.

Still working out the details (guess I better figure it out quick) but so far I'm planning on a wild rice stuffed chicken breast for the missus, either a bacon wrapped filet or a strip steak for me and then a couple of grilled lobster tails.
I'm still trying to figure out the side dishes, may go with something simple like baked potatoes rubbed down with butter and kosher salt. I'm just hoping the two of us can actually sit down and eat a hot meal together, recently we had our first baby (4 months old now) and he controls the eating schedule. :mrgreen:

If I want her to have something truly special and delicious, ... I'd let her do the cooking. :doh:

Caramelized onion on toasted baguette with prosciutto wrapped melon
Wild mushroom risotto
Roasted pear with fig and white wine reduction
Yes it is a little heavy on the starch, but that is what she wants...

I'm glad my wife doesn't read this forum. :-D

Our V-day tradition for almost 10 years now has been fried chicken. Usually just KFC or the like :twisted:

My GF requested chimichurri steaks "of some kind" so decided to check the butcher and either do ribeyes or NY strips APL style with a chimichurry board sauce and either roasted broccoli or roasted brussels sprouts with bacon. I'm genuinely shocked she didn't request lobster rolls.

Going to grill up some New York strips w/ sweet potatoes and some roasted asparagus

She loves lamb chops, so that's what she'll get, with tzatziki sauce made at home. Thinking of baked apples vs. chocolate cake type of thing for dessert
