Valentine’s Day isn’t usually a big deal here in Australia, but since it was mine and Mr S’s first one together, we decided we wanted to celebrate a bit.
Mr S had surgery the day before Valentine’s Day (on Friday the 13th!) so we didn’t really have a choice about having a low-key day. Luckily that’s the kind of people we are!
We started the day with a yummy green breakfast: scrambled eggs with homemade pesto and blue cheese with a side of avocado.
And for dinner we had Jamie Oliver lamb skewers (that I got from the reduced rack!) with fried eggplant and corn on the cob.
Then for dessert we had homemade mint choc chip ice cream (based on this recipe, with homemade chocolate drizzled through while it was churning in the ice cream maker). We also dipped fresh strawberries, fresh figs, dried strawberries and dried mandarin slices into homemade chocolate.
All in all, it was a nice day and we didn’t need to spend a lot of money.
What did you get up to for Valentine’s Day?
