Valentine’s Day – Dinner for two

We have never been big on Valentine’s Day. This year we decided to be different! I got roses(although the previous day, well, the thought that counts).  I decided to cook a 6 course meal. What was I thinking! It was the middle of the week, work is hectic, had to buy groceries and these were things that I have never cooked before. Well, nothing can stop craziness. I had to skip the dessert and a main course due to lack of time and bought gelato(Has anyone tried Talenti gelato. They are awesome. So far, Pista, Black rasberry and Black cherry are my favorites.). Anyway, this is the menu/recipe I followed (Skipped Tempeh and dessert)!! It took all off 45 mins from scratch for the 4 course (Eggplant Cornucopias, heirloom tomato salad, steamed asparagus, Roasted veggie Quinoa, Roasted Beets)!!

Boo had to post those pictures of the cuties to make me all depressed that it has been almost a year since I saw them. So here you go, she asked for it! Murukku was yummy! The poli reminded me of Shankar Mutt Poli from Bangalore! Came out pretty good!
