Like many other singles out there, I dread Valentine's Day.
TV, radio, stores, it's all around me, throwing love, commitment and relationships in my face. Those bastards remind me, (like I need to be reminded) that yet again, I will spend this day, alone, bitter and feeling sorry for myself.
Well guess what? Not this year!
No, I haven't come to the decision to not attend my pity party...Oh no, I will go to my party, and I will feel pity, pity for myself and I will sulk and feel sorry for myself, all day.
But in between the memories of failed relationships, I will be spending the day at my bud Aimee's place. She is throwing a party to promote her very talented artist husband. (http://www.jaceklazuka.com/). He does amazing modern art paintings...check out his website. I don't know much about art, but his work is unique!
Anyway, seeing as how I am somewhat of a chef, I have been enlisted to cook.
It is a simple menu, but nonetheless, delicious:
Lemon, Garlic and Rosemary chicken skewers (equal parts vermouth and lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped rosemary with a bit of olive oil)
Bourbon Soy Steak skewers (equal parts bourbon, soy sauce, water, a bit of toasted sesame seed oil, minced garlic and ginger)
Roasted corn, portobello mushroom, spinach and Parmesan farfalle salad (tossed with a bit of sauteed minced garlic and olive oil)
Sliced fennel, orange and feta cheese salad (tossed with lemon and orange juice with olive oil, salt and pepper)
And for dessert, a chocolate lover's fantasy: Chocolate toffee cookies!
I wish you all a Happy VD, may all your romantic dreams come true!
