Sherie and I were great pals in high school. She’s since raised three boys into independent grown men. Has been married forever. So I was surprised when she recently told me she “cannot cook.” Or doesn’t cook. Or is afraid to cook, the conversation was spotty since we were with a group of 15 fellow RHHS gal pals. But I didn’t forget it.
Sherie… I’ve got your back. Your job is to make Valentine’s Dinner for Brad. Yes, you can do it. I will help you. Here is the menu. Dinner is 7 PM Sunday, February 14.
Sherie’s Valentine’s Day Menu
- Best Roasted Chicken Ever (men love women who will roast them a chicken. But I know Brad already loves you)
- Baked Potato (no link here, see Step 4)
- Farmers Market Salad (this recipe serves 140 – true – or 4. So cut the smaller recipe in half tor you two. You cannot screw up salad)
- Pots de Creme (sounds hard, but this recipe is incredibly easy. Make the whole recipe because you will love it and will want more the next few days)
Click on each recipe link in the list, above, and print out the recipe. Print out this post, too, it is your blueprint.
Write down all the ingredients and go buy them (add 2 russet potatoes, sour cream and butter to the list. And wine.)
Make the chocolate dessert the day before.
START your chicken work at 5 PM, get it into the oven at 5:30 PM, cooks until around 6:45. Then it sits for 15 minutes. Also wash, poke the potatoes a couple of times with a fork, put into the oven at the same time as the chicken.
While chicken is roasting, make your salad.
Set the table. Wine. Candles. Music. Butter, sour cream for potatoes.
Ask Brad to help you serve. He will do it.
Happy Valentine’s Day Sherie & Brad. And Larry.
