Yes, yes, I know it is a very belated post, but it's still a delicious post!
Trevor and I went to the mountains last weekend and stayed at a little casino called Lakeside Inn. It's small, clean, and reasonably priced, which makes it our "go to" hotel in South Shore. We hit up the mountains for some Spring skiing and had a blast! Trevor is currently on his way to Tahoe again this weekend to test out the snow from the current storm. I am pretty bummed because I couldn't take Friday off and I am not about to drive up there by myself in the middle of a huge storm!
Spring skiing is always pretty fun though! No rush to get on the mountain and no panic to stay until the last lift closes. We mostly hit up the Park and Moguls. Out of the two I would definitely pick Moguls, however I am trying to learn a grab and the best place to do that is in the Park.
After the long weekend we were pretty tired so we stayed in for Valentines Day. I prefer to eat at home on Valentines Day anyways so it was perfect:) Trevor came over after work with flowers, wine, shrimp, lobster, salad, and bread! Trevor still had some work to do so I proceeded with dinner in the following order:
Oven: Preheated to 375˚F
Flowers: Cut off the stems at a angle and got those suckers in a vase with lots of water
Wine: Opened and poured
Lobster: Got a Pot and started to boil salted water
Cherry Tomatoes: Tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, chopped garlic and put in the oven.
Dipping Sauce: Chopped Garlic and placed in a saucepan over low heat with a half stick of butter
Shrimp: Tossed in some olive oil, chopped garlic, and cajun seasoning: Salt, pepper, Oregano, Cayenne, and Paprika.
Bread: Sliced and started to toast in same oven as the tomatoes.
Salad: Tossed lettuce with leftover tomatoes, grated carrot, sliced red onion and oil/vinegar
Lobster: Placed both lobster tails in boiling water for about 6 minutes
Shrimp: Seared in pan over medium high heat for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side
Poof! Easy as that and dinner is served!
I melted some butter with chopped garlic for the lobster and bread. It was amazing!
I hope you had a wonderful Valentines Day!
