Yeesh, hope it turned out OK. I've never made sorbet, so I admire your courage.


Clearly, unromantic restaurants (at least in the conventional sense of "romance") are the way to go if you're gonna spend the night out. A Little Tokyo V-Day sounds great. And yes, peer pressure can be a bitch!


Even bakeries are in on the scam: I paid almost SIXTEEN dollars for FOUR chocolate-dipped strawberries, then was too embarrassed to excahnge them after the sticker shock faded. And then I realized actually making them with Charlotte would be much more fun (albeit messier) than simply giving one to her as a deviation from the standard cookie. Though she still negotiated a heart-shaped cookie today (not even on sale!).

good advice. just roasted some lemons for the roast lemon and rosemary chicken I'm making. let's hope the food network and tivo come thru for me. doing a michael chiarello recipe. and my first attempt at sorbet. so far, not so good. pray for me.

normally, i'm totally with you, but the husb and i started with drinks at the golden gopher last night and then headed to Iza-yoi in Little Toyko for izakaya, and had a fab time. Though I suppose not everyone's idea of romance :)

Thanks for the tag, btw and I'll post on it soon!

dinner was a success - but the sorbet didn't get hard enough - next time I'll start earlier because its the perfect consistency this morning. oh well. chad told me he liked "blood orange slushy" anyway.

I agree, unfortunately Valentine's Day is over commercialized, but it's hard to opt-out of the traditional romantic dinner route if your significant other compare notes with their friends the next day :)...
