      we ordered our meal from lobstergram.com a filet mignon and lobster tail for each of us, clam chowder, crab cake, cheesecake for dessert. i'll let you know the quality.

      i didn't feel like making a big meal because going to the grocery store is a little harder with the little guy

      also when i am cooking for steve this is our go to meal for celebrations because it is easy and not much prep work:

      salad

      seared sea scallops with a mango salsa

      filet mignon done simply...kosher salt/pepper to get the true taste...seared to get nice carmelization...i'll add a dab of butter because filets do not usually have as much flavor/fat as rib eye..

      veggies: whatever is in season, roasted asparagus, artichoke (i like to boil the til just al dente then cut in half and add olive oil and lemon juice and finish under broiler to get nice carmelization), spinach, zuchini

      starch: usually a potato. love baked potatoes but i like mine with the works (bacon, cheese, sour cream, chives) so sometimes i am too lazy to get that all together...so usually mashed potatoes or scalloped potatoes

      dessert: cheesecake (m,y fav) or ice cream with bananas foster (steve's fav)

      or if not in the mood for red meat i always do a fish...roasted salmon with a mango salsa or poached salmon with a dill sauce...or miso glazed black cod. very delicious and easy but need at least 24 hours to marinate.

      if i do a fish, then i like to throw it together with a cucumber slad with rice vinegar and a cous cous.

          I second the Vodka a la Penne - I make my sauce a little differently though....

          INGREDIENTS
          1/2 cup butter
          1 onion, diced
          1 cup vodka
          2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
          1 pint heavy cream
          (this is the base recipe and then I play with the spices, fresh basil, oregano & garlic are key)

          DIRECTIONS
          In a skillet over medium heat, saute onion in butter until slightly brown and soft. Pour in vodka and let cook for 10 minutes. Mix in crushed tomatoes and cook for 30 minutes. Pour in heavy cream and cook for another 30 minutes.
