This Valentines Day why not surprise your Sweetie with a sumptuous & Romantic Dinner for Two.
I love making my husband a special meal on Valentines Day rather than going out to a restaurant. To plan the Romantic Dinner for Two menu, I look to make one or two dishes that are really fragrant & combine these with a starter salad, a beautiful bottle of Wine and, of course, some dark chocolate for desert.
This Valentines Day I have decided to feature an Indonesian Pineapple Curry over Cauliflower Rice, paired with either my LiveWell Spinach Salad or a Papaya Avocado Salad. As the Indonesian Pineapple Curry is a bit on the spicy side, I’m going to treat us to a really nice bottle of Shiraz. This meal would also be delicious with a dry Chardonnay or Rose.
