Valentine's menu

Like many others, the Mr. and I are celebrating with a nice Valentine's Day dinner tonight, instead of trying to rush around like maniacs tomorrow after work.

Here's our menu:

This mushroom soup doesn't rely on fattening cream for flavour.
Oliver & Bonacini Cafe Grill Mushroom Soup - from the 3 Chefs cookbook, featuring the three chefs from Cityline (one of my Christmas presents). Although soup is always better after it sits for a day, we didn't have the chance to get it going yesterday, so it is cooking now and wil have several hours for the flavours to strengthen before dinner.

Filet mignon, arugula with grape tomatoes, goat cheese, and prosciutto crisps with white balsamic vinagrette, garlic mashed potatoes, and bread (I could NEVER give up carbs).

For desert we will have carrot cake with cream cheese icing, from a Canadian Living recipe (it's dead easy).


Happy Valentine's Day weekend!
