Time for a slightly self-indulgent back dated post. This year, I had Valentine's day completely free - I was between finishing ATPL ground school and heading to New Zealand for flying school. Since I had the whole day off, and I wasn't going to see my girlfriend for quite a while, I figured it was time to actually do Valentine's day.
I'm a bit broke (what with being a student and all) so I couldn't do anything super-fancy. Instead, I decided to go with making a fancy dinner and making the place look nice. I didn't fancy the obvious cliché of European food, so I decided to go a bit further afield. After a bit of browsing for ideas, my menu was:
- Buttery chilli prawns
- Three cup chicken with garlic spinach
- Strawberry-heart cakes
I don't think it turned out too badly in the end!
