I’d like to think that I am quite romantic. Indeed more romantic than David.
I think the culmination of reading Charlotte Bronte’s Villette and Jean Rhys’s Wide Sargasso Sea while listening to Gustav Mahler and Sergi Rachmaninov symphonies when younger has effected my sensibilities.
This years Valentine’s Day was spent in our new home. It was supposed to be David who was to cook (to make me feel special) but it ended up being me cooking.
With little time to plan I opted to make a three course meal.
1) Carrot and Cumin soup
2) Honey and mustard trout for main
3) Chocolate strawberries for desert
I started preparing at 1pm as I had a day off work. I slowly melted the chocolate and then dipped in the strawberries
After 5pm I cooked the vegetables for the soup (which I had peeled and chopped earlier) and the fish. All went well and we were well and truly satisfied.
After the pudding we listened to Classic FM and the concert recorded from the Liverpool Philharmonic, on romantic Spanish music. I loved it! Whether David liked it is another matter.
Happy Valentines to all you lovers out there!!!
