Whenever we get chance, a 4 course dinner is one of our favorite to make for each other. Specially when it is our anniversary, birthday, or valentine's day.. we seldom buy a cake but will quietly make (or plan) dinner for each other.
So, this week, I'm sharing with you few of our favorite dinner-for-two meals from blog. A lot of recipes here I picked from our favorite restaurants. Today, CPK is getting the votes because it is one our favorite place to eat.
I can (want to) share with you endless Valentine's day dinner ideas.. But, will curtail my enthusiasm to 1 or 2 menu plans to give you some amazing dinner ideas to choose from. Dinners that are easy, easy on pocket too and give you the BEST day with your loved one without spending lots of money in restaurants!
Today's dinner idea's cuisine is Italian Fusion and star ingredient is Citrus.
1) Main Course: Start with a salad. This is a salad you can even serve after pasta. It is inspired from one of my favorite Chef Bobby flay's recipe.
2) Main Course: Pasta with tequilla and chicken, in a flavorful cream sauce. It looks so delicious! Your valentine will fall in love with you, again! :)
