Valentine’s Day Dinner Surprise!

So for this year’s Valentine’s day, bae asked what do I wish to have. Well, I did crave for Risotto and one of my favourite places to go was LA RISATA restaurant ๐Ÿ‘‰ which is DEFINITELY gonna be expensive on Valentine’s Day.

Not falling for the once in a year time of corporations making extra bucks from unsuspecting love-birds (seriously, why do people still for this?) I’ve decided that my man’s not gonna be ripped off just because I wanted to ‘feel’ special, just on this day.

Real-life footage of corporations eating couples’ hard earned money on Valentine’s Day.

So instead of going out, I’ve simply told him I didn’t want to celebrate the day & we’ll just stay in with a simple meal… while in actual fact I’ve prepped a surprise for him ๐Ÿ˜ˆ Ngek ngek

So before he’s home, I rushed to make these…

Appetizer is bruschetta toasted with feta cheese, chopped tomatoes, fresh parsley, and olive oil infused with herbsโ€ฆ served atop of fresh lettuces ๐Ÿž๐Ÿ…๐Ÿง€๐ŸŒฟ

Entree is mushroom Risotto with seared butter scallopss ๐Ÿฝ
First time attempting Risotto and it’s more challenging than I thought… As it ended up being a lil‘ mushy than what a good risotto should be. Well, I hope I’ll improve better next time ๐Ÿ™‚ 
Dessert is Parfait made with Milo cereals (since he’s a fan of Milo)!
Served with sparkling juice ๐Ÿพ
It was tiring… but seeing his happy face is worth it!

And even fellow 9-gaggers are pleasantly nice about it too, thanks… here are potatoes for you ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿ ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿ 

Later in the week though, he insisted on bringing me to dinner at LA RISATA restaurant for post-Valentine’s! So in the end, I got what I was craving for anyway, while he gets a surprise ๐Ÿ˜

What a handsome face :3

Till then, hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! Thanks for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers,
