Last year for Valentines my fiancée cooked dinner for me. This year she came down with a bit of a cold, so we cooked together instead. Here are some of the highlights.

fillet

A loin of pork covered in garlic cream cheese, biding its time in the oven.

kriek

The first kriek (belgian cherry ale) I’ve ever had that was drinkable. All other attempts at drinking kriek have been abandoned less than halfway through. This one a friend gave me for my 31st birthday. The picture is also, incidentally, sort of a self portrait.

salad

The real inventive masterpiece of the evening in my opinion – A salad of arugula, mango and pink grapefruit, dressed with a bit of olive oil and mango vinegar, along with salt, black pepper and chili flakes.

icecream

This is ice cream in the making. Vanilla and Oreos. Yummy. The fiancée’s idea. (It was also her idea to get an ice cream machine in the first place)
