Every year Marks and Spencer have these Dine in For Two where they sell ready to cook set meals which includes a starter, a main, dessert and drinks. You are spoilt for choice as they have meat, fish, poultry and vegetarian.
These meals are extremely popular. They do it for a very reasonable price which means you can enjoy a wonderful meal in the comfort of your own home.
As much as we would love to go out for a meal at a restaurant, we know we can't because we don't have anyone here that could look after Poj. Plus knowing that Valentine's day is very much celebrated here, you will have to make sure that you book well in advance to guarantee a table!
So we were organised this year & went to M&S in the weekend and picked our menu.
For our starter we had:
It was just divine. Papa E loves seafood and the the scallop with the white wine was just lovely. It made us really excited for the rest of the meal.
For our main we had:
I love my steak rare or medium coz I want them to be soft and tasty whilst Papa E likes them well done. We were so excited about our meal when it was cooked that we forgot to prepare some veggies to go with it!
And for dessert we had:
It was not too sweet but was very rich. And as much as I love my dessert, I could not finish the lovely treat.
And apart from the wine (I picked Zinfandel Rosé which is my favourite. It may not be the best choice with the steak but hey ho, I went with my fave!) there was also a box of chocolate...
A romantic hassle-free candlelit dinner cooked by my Valentine. And just when I thought it could not get any better than this, he gave me this and told me that when we go to Disneyland in April, we'll spend some time in the city of Paris as well.
Thanks Papa E ♡♡♡
