Happy Valentine's Day

Don't just sit there complaining that it's a "Hallmark holiday." Nobody said you have to buy cards--or flowers, or chocolates, or anything at all for that matter! Save your money and take this as an opportunity to share a little love.

LB and I are looking forward to a 5 course Valentine's dinner at our local Raw restaurant, 118 Degrees. Here's a peek at the menu: (photo from 118 Degrees)

Courses 1-3:
Wild Foraged Mushroom Rosettes on Mixed Vegetable Crackers
Warm Asparagus Soup
Wilted Sweet Spinach Salad with Crispy Tomato, Olives & Basil Cheese
Choice of Entree:
Portobello Terrine with Fresh Garlic Creme sauce or
Basil Ravioli with Creamy Vegetable Filling, Topped with Spicy Tomato Sauce
Blackberries and Creme or
the Famous Chocolate Ganache

I've spent the last 48 hours or so (with a few hours sleep thrown in) working on Fierce Teenager's financial aid packets for college. Talk about stressful! I cannot wait for dessert! I'll let you know how it all was.
Have a fabulous day!

This looks absolutely delicious!

I really need to check out the "raw scene" here in Chicago. I've heard of Karyn's Cafe, but have never gone.

I can't wait to hear how the food tasted! Don't fill us in too much though, I'm already pretty jealous...:P

Much Love,
