Food from the Heart

I mentioned in a recent Post
that we had guests this past weekend

We always experience fabulous food
when these friends are visiting

Hubby & Tom wanted to prepare
some special dishes over the weekend
as a Valentine treat for me and Carol

Isn't hubby sweet

 both hubby's are excellent chefs and
we couldn't wait to see
what they were
"cookin' up"

Saturday night's menu

Pan seared scallops w/ wild mushrooms
on top of corn polenta pudding

followed by

Aged beef w/ an espresso rub
& smoked Gouda mashed potatoes

Tom dry aged these beautiful steaks for four days
they were then rubbed with olive oil, espresso, chili power, & paprika,
pan seared scallops w/ wild mushrooms
over corn polenta pudding
Needless to say we were in heaven!!

Oh, but wait there's more.......

Sunday night's menu

Mock Turtle Soup
Caesar Salad
Crusty bread

Chocolate Mousse
The soup included smoke duck, smoke turkey, and rib eye of pork loin

Isn't this a beautiful Caesar salad

and what's a beautiful meal
without a little wine

.......and last our sinful dessert

Chocolate Mousse
and yes it was as good as it looks!!

Even the puppies were dressed for
this Valentine dinner

Every Little Birdie says-

I'd say we are two lucky girls
and maybe a little spoiled

Our hubby's R O C K!!!!
