Valentine's Day Meal

Cooking with love happens every day for me but on Valentine's Day I always want to try something a little extra special. I put together this meal and the focus is hearts, which is the perfect symbol of Valentine's Day. I had Steven and Sarah for dinner and they loved it.

This full meal has turkey and pork as the meat, I've tried baking artichoke (they have a heart) for the first time, couscous for the starch, a side salad and two deserts chocolate shortbread and strawberry cheesecake with a twist. I hope you try the meal out or parts of it as it won't disappoint.

Valentine's Day Meatloaf is a heart shaped turkey and pork meatloaf full of veggies and cheese then covered with puff pastry and baked to perfection.

Baked Parmesan Artichoke adds color and flavour to this meal. You have to be adventurous and give it a try. Of course make sure you eat the right part of the artichoke as that is the key to yumminess.

Peas and Ham Couscous is a great light carb that augments any meal but especially this one as it brings a nice texture to the overall meal.

Salad for this meal had to be very simple so just a plain Side Salad complemented this meal perfectly.

Who says shortbread is only for Christmas? Try this Valentine Chocolate Shortbread Cookies and you will make them any time of the year.

And finally serve a couple of the shortbread cookies with this amazing Strawberry Cheesecake Heart Puffs. The cream is decadent and the puff pastry sinful. So simple to make that you will want to make them anytime there is a special occasion.

I hope you enjoy making this meal as much as I enjoyed created it. From my HEART to your HEART, Happy Valentine's Day 2022!
