Since my hubby is taking me out to eat on Valentine's Day I decided to fix him an early meal.
The menu was Grilled Rib Eye Steak, Stir-Fry Garlic Asparagus, Red Mashed Potatoes, Garden Salad and Hot Rolls.
How does that sound for a meal for someone you love.
I love fresh asparagus and it was on sale, so I grabbed a bundle. I just heated about 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet; added asparagus and stir fried about 4 minutes, then I added 1 clove of minced garlic and stir-fried a couple more minutes. We like ours crisp, cook longer if you like it more done.
The rib eye I grilled in my George Foreman Grill for 6 minutes, our perfect time for our steaks, medium rare.
The Red Mashed Potatoes, I peeled my potatoes, but if you like you can leave the skins on. Boil until tender; drain. Beat potatoes with an electric mixer. Add butter (we like a lot), salt, black pepper and milk to reach the consistency you like.
Here is a recipe for hot rolls http://grannierecipebox.blogspot.com/2015/02/easy-yeast-dinner-rolls-recipe.html
We had a Coconut Cream Pie for dessert!
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!
