I'm cooking steak. I was going to ask for everyone's favorite way to do steak. I'm thinking of something I saw on Alton Brown: sear it in a pan & finish it off in the oven.
It's unofficial "steak & BJ" day at the Algethi household.

Pan seared scallops: Over medium-high heat, melt approx 1 tbsp of butter in a small frying pan until bubbling stops (should coat the pan thickly). Place 6 large sea scallops flat side down in the pan, leave them undisturbed until there is a brown coating on the underside (approx. 2 min). Flip so the fresh side lies in a fresh patch of butter, cook until brown on the underside. Once the scallops are done, set aside and add a minced shallot to the pan and cook until it begins to brown. Deglaze with 1/4 cup of dry white wine. Add shallots back to sauce and pour over scallops. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and garnish with thinly sliced scallions.

/Pan seared scallops are stupidly easy to make, and reward you with a delicious meal WAY out of proportion to the amount of effort put in. Now go cook it for your sweetie.

Made a beefy dinner incl a vermouth reduction that he liked last week - may do a repeat.
*Just remember the wine, and to skip the veges he/she dislikes and you're off to a good start.

loki see loki do: I'm making iron skillet seared filets oscar style and little red potatoes with rosemary.
But I'm cheating and using an easy fix bearnaise.
Little Cab, little bubbly with chocolate covered strawberries, then whisk my gal to bed.
Where she will promptly fall asleep.

I love how on Valentine's Day the trend is to have a nice dinner - and hops to get laid afterwards. Having a big meal then having sex is an accident waiting to happen.

you always hump BEFORE dinner and wine.  It's important.

How about a  Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.

Idk, I've made lots of stuff over the years.  Braised lamb shanks in a red wine reduction, homemade chicken alfredo over linguine, coq au vin.

This afternoon I am having tortellini and spinach in a garlic cream sauce with sausage and a glass of white wine.  For dinner, it will be sushi and champagne.
