Valentine's Day Dinner
Tonight's dinner was Filet Mignon with a Red Wine Pan Sauce, Cucumbers, and Sunchokes. The sunchokes look like ginger, which I thought I was buying at the farmer's market. He warned us they were not ginger, I bought them to try anyways.
The appetizer was water crackers with imported Brie.

Sadly, my oven died after heating up to 400F. I had to use the toaster oven. After cooling and having in the fridge. I used the toaster's broiler feature to finish the top. I used brown and white sugar to caramelize. Blackberries and powdered sugar were added to finish it off.
The setting with fresh roses. The meal was accompanied with Apple Cider.
