Do you have a plan yet for you and your special someone for Valentine’s Day dinner?
How about get the kiddos down early, light a few candles and serve your Hubs this amazing dinner? If your guy is anything like mine, he’ll be stoked to not have to fight the Valentine’s Day crowds and not have to hire a sitter!
If a night at home sounds up your alley, this Valentine’s Day dinner recipe is sure to shoot cupid’s arrow straight through your man’s heart: Slow Cooked Short Ribs & Celery Root Puree.
It’s easy to prepare and boasts a few layers of complementary flavors = definitely Valetine’s-date-night-worthy. I mean, seriously, have you ever met a man who doesn’t like a short rib?
Any good chef will tell you, the most important component of executing a successful, elegant meal is where you start: the ingredients! The fresher, higher quality ingredients, the better.
I love Whole Foods because they have the most beautiful meats, produce and spices to ensure the perfect finished product.
Oh and here’s the fun part – you can do your shopping for this special Valentine’s Day meal, grab a girlfriend or your hubby, and meet up with Jennifer and I for a night out at Whole Foods Market Huntington Beach on Tuesday, February 11th for very special Valentine’s themed complimentary store-wide tasting called Ingredients: A Love Story.
We can’t wait!!
