Valentine's Day Dinner

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.

The main course

Dessert - Crème brûlée - click here for the recipe.
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.
