Date niiiiiiiight 🙌🏼 Looking for a romantic dinner and a little surf and turf action? Look no further.
Reality of the recipe? Romantic AF. Fairly easy and doesn't take a lot of time if you time it out right.
Ingredients: 2 of your favorite cut of steak, 2 lobster tails, veggie of choice, mash tadies, butter, thyme, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic.
Step 1: Prep lobster tails, cut down center of the top of the tail just before fanned out part of the tail. Gently separate shell from meat on sides and lift meat until it is separated from the lower membrane of the shell then pinch shell together lightly and set meat on top of shell. Put back in fridge to cool.
Step 2: Set oven for 375°.
Step 3: Heat cast iron skillet to medium high.
Step 4: Prep steak. Salt and pepper as desired to both sides of steak.
Step 5: Throw a generous amount of olive oil into the hot cast iron pan and gently lay steaks in pan away from you. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side. On the second side, about 3 minutes in throw in 4 smashed cloves of garlic, a bunch of thyme, and 2 knobs of butter. After the butter melts, baste steaks with the butter thoroughly then set steaks on top of garlic and thyme and put in oven for 10 minutes (to desired cooked state).
Step 6: Steam veggie to preference, then saute if desired.
Step 7: Take out lobster tails from fridge. Coat meat with olive oil, season with salt and paprika to liking. Put lobster in oven (Cook 3 minutes per ounce).
Step 8: By this time, the steaks should be done, so take out of oven and set aside to rest.
Step 9: To save time, we used a store bought ready made mashed potatoes that we just had to microwave for about 6 minutes but you can make them however you desire.
Step 10: Take out lobster tails when done, put a pat of butter on top of each and put back in oven for 1 to 2 minutes then take them out.
Step 11: Prep plates as desired, light a candle, pour some wine, and enjoy! .
Hair inspired by day 5 of #tvwmholidayhair challenge. This was a fun style to do, and perfect for a dinner date 🥰 I've really enjoyed trying different holiday hairstyles these past few days. Thanks again @marlavonduta and @thevintagewomanmagazine for this fun challenge!
Impromptu date night @twigsbistro. Started off with a 9-oz pour of Chateau St Michelle Syrah (Washington’s oldest winery!). 🍷 Went in later for the whitefish tacos & green-curry chicken soup...
The soup was honestly the star of my dinner. I LOVE green curry, but not everyone knows how to do it correctly. It’s either OVERLY coconut-y and sweet or entirely too hot for my tastebuds. This thick ‘n creamy curry was just sweet enough, and the heat was more on the medium side. Perfect for me! I also learned that the chef is vegan and simply adds chicken to the vegan curry base. Which is EXACTLY how I used to prepare meals when I was still plant-based and cooking for a carnivorous husband. Vegan base dishes. Add some meat. Everyone is happy...
Nothing tonight was remotely keto. Don’t care. Digestion does pretty great when I’m not working. (That is VERY telling in regards to how stress and unhappiness truly affect our health.) Additionally, I’m super strict with diet during the week. So I feel not ounce of guilt in regards to devouring things I TRULY enjoy eating on the weekends. I still stay away from sugar (mostly). I don’t gorge on grains. (The nemesis of my digestive tract.) And that leaves room for tacos! 😄
You can call us Mr. & Mrs. Bob Ross🤭
