Valentine's Day Feast for the Senses

For Valentine's Day, Hawea made me these gorgeous bacon roses!!!!

Nah... just kidding!
I saw this online earlier in the day and
 and I snagged the picture for future reference.
(Because I might need to make them someday, of course).
Bacon is divine.
Flowers rock.
Need I say more? 
A real blossom on Valentine's day
Dinner was lobster tail with steamed asparagus.
It was the first time V ever cooked lobster, first time I've ever eaten it.
We were in heaven.

Strawberries for dessert. 
Stuffed with dark chocolate cream cheese,
stuffed with white chocolate cream cheese
Dipped in semi-sweet chocolate 
And last, but not least, my first attempt at chocolate cherry cheesecake
The crust stuck to the pan... note to self... more butter next time.

Everything's better with butter. :) 
What else says lovin' like cheesecake in the oven?

All in all, it was a terrific night. Of course there was a Whitney Houston tribute involved, and a bit of wine. The evening was  awesome enough to convince us to start a new tradition of home cooked decadence ("the sky's the limit") on Valentine's day.

I can already see it... bacon roses DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE....

In closing, here's a  little shout out to love:

"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile".
