Valentine's Day Dinner

It's Valentine's Day. However, I did have a usual mid-week dinner planned - Lentil Soup - not very romantic or celebratory - is that even a word? In the back of my mind a little voice keeps saying, "Lobster, lobster." But who has lobster on a Thursday Night?

When the kids were little, we used to buy them cards and little boxes of chocolates on Valentine's Day.  We would try to make it festive - there are so few opportunities to fancy up winter after Christmas, that any excuse to make a fuss was seized!!

Maybe because we are down to just one child in the evening for dinner, that we've stop being festive - but really lentil soup - though tasty - it's a little pedestrian.

Well I have about 8 hours to re-think dinner, buy a card, some flowers for my husband and some chocolates for the two kids still at home.

I actually checked the arsenal and I do have enough lobster weapons for 3, if we share the nut (claw) cracker.

Hmmmmmm can we be wicked and have lobster on a Thursday?

Have a wonderful day!!


  1. Well if ever a Thursday deserved lobster today would be it! Enjoy whatever it is you have... I think we're having eggs, lol...

  2. I eat lobster as often as possible! Go for it!

  3. Yum! I love lobster. I used to live in the little seafishing town of Robe, South Australia, known for the lobsters caught there. Fisherman freinds would share their catch sometimes and I'd cook one in boiling water on a gas ring outside. There's nothing like fresh food from the sea.
