In recent years we’ve spent most of our Valentine’s Days and anniversaries at home. V-day seems like “amateur night” out at the restaurants, seats jam-packed with lovebirds – which, actually makes for good people watching, if you’re able to spot an awkward first date.
Plus, we’d like, have to find a babysitter. That’s a lot of work, especially on a school night.
So, instead I’ve been cooking in – typically something a little more special than your average “meat and potatoes” dinner, and generally with seafood. I’ve made fresh steamed lobster, pan seared scallops and one year my husband made Crab Imperial (yes, he did)!
This year we’re taking a little trip to Paris for Valentine’s Day, and having something quick and simple for our February 14th dinner: Fresh Spinach and Lump Crab Omelettes.
