Well dinner went well last night. My DH helped out and made the lobster and helped season the steaks. He was completely surprised by our dessert...Pumpkin Pie!! I was fortunate to get a job yesterday that put me home almost an HOUR before him. I was able to get the pie crust made and the filling done, rolled up the extra pie crust with cinnamon/sugar. I was just cleaning up and about to pour in the pumpkin when he walked in the door.
He brought me flowers!! My favorite kind, Calalillies.
I used up the last of the butter on our Hollandaise Sauce and it was looking beautiful!! We seasoned it and I took it off the heat and it BROKE!! it Curdled!! it was rendered USELESS!!! all that hard work. I guess that it is ok, its only the second time I have made it. Luckily the first time it worked out nicely as it was for Easter dinner with guests. I was greatly disappointed with myself but Thomas told me it would be okay and that it was not a big deal. It took me a good 15 minutes to get over it. It is so frustrating when you take the time to plan and make something and then it BREAKS! I did NOT take any pictures because I don't want any evidence of my failure...except here I am sharing it with everyone on the World Wide Web. Smart one!
Well there you have it. I will have pictures posted of the successful parts of the meal later.
Hope all of you lovelies had a WONDERFUL Valentines!!
