Valentine's Day dinner

If you are cooking for your significant other, what will you be preparing?
Assuming we stay in, it will probably include his favorite corn soup. Lobster claws for me. Steak for him. Steamed artichokes. Some fresh bread. And unbaked cookie dough... and maybe some baked, though he really is ne'er too interested in the cooked product these days.
Lamb Chops with Herbed Meyer Lemon butter and a appetizer of asparagus crostini with prosciutto topped with a poached egg :)
Assuming you're going to cook in , I may opt for a pepper coated fillet of beef, pan seared then finished in the oven. Add a green veg and a bottle of bubbly, finito!
We're dining in on the 14th.
Prosecco & Parmesan-crusted Potato Chips
Grilled Porcini & Peppercorn Crusted Filets
Extra Colossal Shrimp sauteed w garlic and Aleppo pepper
with a yet to be determined Cabernet Sauvignon
If all goes well, I hope to make these Red Velvet Icebox Cakes:
This year it will be Vietnamese since she loves it.
Crab spring rolls
Banana packets for dessert
My SO is going to be traveling for work Wednesday-Friday. But, on Thursday I'm going to get a heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's and keep in the fridge for Friday night to eat after I pick him up from the airport, because it's so stupid and cheesy and I love stupid and cheesy :) On Saturday though, I think I'm going to make the short ribs braised in dark beer with bacon and red onions from the COTM.
We're going out but I did make some bright red beet cupcakes over the weekend. Adding pureed beets gives them a deep red color without tasting like beets. A little white chocolate on top and they are heaven! I call them Valentine's Day Beet Cupcakes.
