Valentine's Dinner

Hubby's finally back from his Taipei business trip! Just in time to make it for Valentine's dinner.

I prepared some simple stuff to share with hubby.

Seafood Salad with prawns, crabsticks and grilled yellow bell peppers. The smoky taste from the juices of the bell pepper was enough for a dressing:

Clam Soup with Fire Roasted Tomatoes:

Grilled Prawns with Sage and Bacon:

Starwberry Coulis with Meringue. This recipe was too sweet, so we're going to recycle this to a strawberry milkshake later. The meringue didn't turn out the way I had envisioned it, maybe because it was raining when I made it. I read somewhere that you shouldn't make meringue when it's raining due to the humidity. Yeah, I'm blaming the weather, he he he.

Strawberry Mint Iced Tea. Tazo peppermint tea with strawberry cool-aid and honey. This was a super hit with hubby :-)

Hubby brough home some Pineapple Cake from Taipei. Rumored to be the best, or so we're told. It was ok.

I also made some grilled fish in an asian sauce but we were too full to eat it :-)

Happy Valentine's!
