Monday of Week 7 was V-day. My husband is great and says Valentines is for girls so he doesn't want me to get him a gift. Score! I am horrible at picking out gifts for him anyway. So I figured the least I could do is cook him in an awesome dinner! I wanted to go easy on myself since I was a pampered Valentine so I took some help from the good people at Fresh Market. I bought 3 (already prepared and ready to bake in a 350º oven for 25min) Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu breasts at the meat counter and added some fresh green beans and boxed rice pilaf for sides. The dinner was delicious and I only spent about 25 min total in the kitchen! Happy V-day to me!
Some of you may think this was a cop-out meal, but I don't believe it is. People think there are only 2 options for dinner sometimes. Home cooked or Dinner out. But really, there are so many delicious options in the middle. I think it is important to give yourself a break sometimes and take a little help from the grocery store. This meal was healthy, economical, and, if I do say so myself, pretty fancy!
Oh and since it was February 14th, we also enjoyed some yummy petit fours (also from Fresh Market) and Chardonnay after the kiddos hit the hay. AND here is a picture of the beautiful Ardent Sparrow necklace Steve gave me! He knows me so well. I give Valentines Day 2011 an A+!
