Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu
Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend foodies! Sorry this post is going up a bit late. This past week was such a mess for us. Our laundry room flood which created a huge mess and made doing laundry a lot more difficult. Plus I had a couple friends need some help and I can’t say no. So blog posts were put on the back burner, but thats okay with me since family and friends always come first. Not to mention this past week was essential a week to celebrate love so how could I not help out where I’m needed. But without further ado, here is our Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu.
This menu has some of our favourite recipes included and when put all together it creates a complete meal. While we are putting these recipes together for a Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu, you could totally make these recipes for a regular dinner or another special occasion.
Maple Brown Sugar Glazed Carrots
These maple brown sugar glazed carrots are full of flavour. They are a great side dish that isn’t boring but fun and exciting. Plus they pair perfectly with steak and potatoes.
Mini Smashed Potatoes
Mini smashed potatoes are one of our favourite side dishes. They are simple and easy but look like a lot of time and effort have been put in. They are another great side dish, and work well if you’re cooking for only two people or a large crowd.
Spinach Apple Berry Salad with Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette
This spinach apple berry salad is my all time favourite salad. The sweetness of the berries paired with the tart granny smith apple are a perfect balance. Plus the toasted almonds and goats cheese are delicious together. Top it with this homemade balsamic vinaigrette for the perfect salad that screams Valentine’s Day.
Herb Crusted Steak
Don’t forget the main event. This herb crusted steak is so juicy and more flavourful than your classic steak. Follow our recipe and instructions for a fool proof way to make the perfect steak for you and your loved one, or even the whole family.
Flourless Chocolate Lava Cake
We can’t have a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner without dessert. Any other chocolate lovers out there? This flourless chocolate lava cake is so satisfying. It is ooey gooey in the middle with all the chocolatey lava but the outside is spongey like regular cake with a little bit of crispy sugar on the bottom. Pair it with ice cream, whip cream and fruit for the perfect dessert to end the meal. Plus you can make it in these super cute hearted shaped ramekins.
Hopefully these recipes make it onto your dinner table this Valentine’s Day. This year looks a lot different compared to previous years. We will be making dinner at home instead of going out to a restaurant, but I am actually excited to stay in. In part I’m excited to stay in because it’s been snowing non stop here but also because it’s nice to do different things sometimes.
I love traditions and going out to restaurants. But eating at home means that I won’t have any anxiety over my food being contaminated with gluten. So there is always a silver lining. Plus I will also get to spend more quality time with Matt and the doggies are always welcome in our kitchen. Unlike in a restaurant. I hope that you all have an amazing Valentine’s Day, and that you get to spend it with your loved ones eating great food.
