Happy V-day........1st with BTE

Now into what had happened so far in Feb :)...............

of course of course the Hallmark holiday..........Feb 14.........V-day

The week prior to that..... BTE was at a week long ski trip and at first he told me that he might not be able to make it home on V-day.......and I told him we can always just do it another day.....but then plans changed and he actually made it home......I was super super excited cos it was the first V-day I had with BTE..................he was so cute when he first came back....all mountain man looking!!! It might be weird, but it is actually my favourite look of his.........he is simply a mountain person :)




Anywaz..... since he just got back from his trip, we decided that we should just stay home Sat night......I wanted to treat him with a nice meal.......so I went to Whole Foods and got a bunch of fancy food to make


And on Sat night Feb14......BTE became the first customer of DOT (hehe long story... but basically, if i have a restaurant, it will be named DOT)


and what was on the menu of DOT that night......lets see........


Pan seared Scallops with a saffron Kaffir lime cream sauce





Eggplant Parmesan deconstructed (basically the eggplant is not breaded, so no eggs cause BTE can't have eggs, instead I lined the eggplant construction with some homemade 5 seeds bread that i made the day before)





And finally, Dry aged New York steak with caramelized sweet potatoes and red wine pan jus




Pretty fancy eh..... even impressed by myself :)



The next night, BTE actually took me out for dinner which was really really nice........We went climbing first and then went to this restaurant in Incline Village called Frederick's..... Frederick's can be considered a restaurant that serves fusion food....... California style of food with an Asian twist................We had an awesome night........in fact it was so great that i only remembered to take one picture in the beginning........


and looking at it..... my food is pretty up to par when compared to what is out there....wouldn't you think?

Panko fried oyster and Caesar salad


Thank you so much for everything BTE.......looking forward to the next V-day we will have :)

He is definitely that! But capable of adapting when required. Looked like an amazing meal!
