valentines day is a time of year that really has no significance. it tenderizes impressionable youth, women have to get sexy no matter what it takes, whether it be new clothes, lingerie, full body chemical peel.... it forces men of all ages to spend money on useless things, expensive gifts, romantic getaways, restaurants, blah blah blah....another consumer holiday that is covered up with candy and kisses.


But don't get me wrong, I am not a non-romantic bitter person, and I like to take a nice moment when one presents itself.....So to venerate the holiday spirit without giving into all of the consumerist agenda, Mike and I are cooking a delightful meal and dessert ourselves! Almost!

*** we were going to go out, but we are too broke to do it in NYC (yikes!) And we did buy food ingredients, geez


"Beef" Wellington
A seitan tenderloin with a red wine
mushroom "pate" all wrapped in puff pastery.

Avocado Chop Salad

Crispy romaine with avocado, tomato, lemon and spices

A Sundae of:
Lula's Sweet Apothecary Ice Cream:

Snicker Doodles
Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Nieto Senetiner Reserva MALBEC 2008

The Wellington, pre-wrapping...

...and post wrapped/cooked/tasted....ohhhh fantastic!
I would have posted the recipe, but it needs some work.
The dish was delicious, however it could use alteration.
