For Christian’s Mom’s last full day visiting us in San Francisco I decided to make us a special Breakfast...but the funny twist is that the recipe comes from a quirky cookbook that my girlfriends bought me 5+ years ago for my bachelorette party called “Intercourses.”  The whole idea behind the cookbook is that it is focused on ingredients that are supposed aphrodisiacs, such as honey (I guess?).  But the recipe sounded more delicious than naughty to me...so I decided it was perfectly acceptable for a Mom-in-Law farewell brunch!  Weird?  Maybe.  Scrumptious?  Definitely!
Foodie Valentine’s Day Celebrations

Christian and I celebrated V Day on Sunday with a trip to the SF Ballet to see Giselle (fabulous!) and dinner at Paul K (a bit underwhelming).  But we also celebrated on V Day proper by cooking a nice meal at home and popping a bottle of bubbly so I thought I would review both celebrations.

I’ll start with the dinner we made ourselves on Valentine’s Day itself...a nice bottle of 2006 Mumm Blanc de Blanc, Mussels Steamed in a Spicy Tomato-Cilantro Broth with a DIY salad of Arugula, Beets, Fresh Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese drizzled with truffle honey, balsamic, olive oil, salt & pepper.  Dessert was homemade chocolate dipped strawberries.
Tunisian Spiced Lamb with Chard

One word...DELICIOUS!  And honestly, really easy as well.  This is a great weeknight meal and I think it may be the best Chard that we’ve ever made...the shallots, dates and toasted pine nuts just compliment the chard so perfectly that I was actually sad when we we’re out.  I seriously would encourage you to double the chard part of the recipe...it’s that good.
