A "Love"ly Meal
I'm so glad to know how to cook (and that my hubby knows how to grill). Going out to eat really is becoming less enticing to me the more we learn how to prepare at home. For instance, last night we had a very special Valentine's dinner: Beef filets wrapped in peppered bacon (and grilled to perfection), baked potatos, large garden salads, homebaked whole wheat bread--from scratch!, sparkling white grape juice, and oodles of homemade chocolate-covered strawberries. It was completely indulgent, and we savored every last bite. And the best part about it? (Well, ok, the second-best part; the best part was its yumminess.) It only cost around $11. That's total, for all three of us...four, if you count secondhand food. I guess we could've gone to McDonald's for that same amount of money, but this was slightly better.
