I have some bad news: I’m officially sick. I’ve been feeling a bit off for the past week and it seems to have finally caught up with me today. I have a fever and some really awesome congestion going on right now. Bummer – just in time for the long weekend. Here’s hoping if I rest up today I’ll be feeling better ASAP!
Anyway – Matt and I had a nice night last night for Valentine’s Day! Instead of going out and spending a ton of money, we decided to stay in and have a cozy home cooked meal.
We even busted out these napkins, leftover from our wedding, for the occasion!
Matt and I decided to pick up some nice steaks for the feast, served with baked sweet potato and sautéed spinach on the side. He did the cooking – I did the cleaning up.
Everything was delicious! The sweet potatoes were simply baked in the oven with a little sugar and cinnamon on the outside. The spinach was sautéed with olive oil, garlic, and slivered almonds. And for the steak, he seared it in a pan for a few minutes on each side then put the whole pan in the oven to cook the rest of the way. He topped it with some mushrooms sautéed in a little red wine.
Sorry for the short post, but I’m off to rest. Happy Friday, everyone!
