This year for Valentine’s Day, we planned on going to Charley’s Steakhouse for dinner. To make a long story short, we made the reservation for the wrong night and didn’t end up going. Regardless, I was still craving steak, so for Valentine’s Day we made our own delicious steak dinner and dinned in!
(Oh, and by the way I’m a brunette now! What do ya think? I’m just trying it out for awhile, and liking it so far.)
On the menu – We had parmesan crusted filet mignon, loaded baked potatoes, caesar salad, veggies, rolls, and cheesecake with fresh raspberries for desert!
I got the idea to make a crust for our filets from Ally. I wanted to do something different than just the usual steak and make it a little more like a steak you’d order from a restaurant. Instead of trying out a recipe, I just decided to wing it.
I mixed together a 1/2 cup of bread crumbs, and a 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Mixed in 1 egg, some salt and pepper, onion powder, and basil.
Overall, it was a nice Valentine’s Day. The food was delicious and the company was great; Josh and I sat around the dinner table for hours just chatting and sipping champagne.
Thank you for the Green Bean Valentine, Jennifer! I love it!
