A Valentines Feast for 2

I begin the journey of this blog with the delightful details of our romantic dinner for 2.

It began with a soft Rosemary Cheese with Fig Preserve appetizer, served with a glass of Shiraz. The delicate cream and goat cheese enveloped the fresh rosemary, tarragon and local honey.

This was followed by a light salad of heart shaped roasted beets, atop watercress which was dressed in a light, raspberry viniagrette. Two goat cheese "marbles" which were rolled in ground pistachios accompanied the salad.

Then, onto the main entree, Wild Mushroom Whole Wheat Lasagna with thyme roasted sweet tomatoes. This was served with a glass of Prosecco.

The evening ended with a serving of warm, from the oven, Blackberry/ Blueberry Cobbler.

As elegant as it was delicious!

As we sat, looking out at the snow covered lawn and lake, we lamented the fact that dinner had come and gone so quickly, but alas, there are leftovers for the next night!

This blogging is new to me, so as a reader, please be patient. I am not sure how or where it will evolve, but look forward to the journey!
