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 👉 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 😈 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 herbs… served atop of fresh lettuces 🍞🍅🧀🌿

Entree is mushroom Risotto with seared butter scallopss 🍽
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 🙂 
Dessert is Parfait made with Milo cereals (since he’s a fan of Milo)!
Served with sparkling juice 🍾
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 🥔🍠🥔🍠

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 😍

What a handsome face :3

Till then, hope you had a great Valentine’s Day! Thanks for reading 🙂
