    Tomorrow being valentines day, does anyone have a special meal planned? SWMBO gets braised lamb shank this year. Pics to follow of course.

    Nothing special planned. I have a pork tenderloin that needs to be cooked--maybe figure out something to do with that. I have a good recipe somewhere for pork tenderloin with port and prunes. That could work.

    Oh shucks! I had some frozen coconut shrimp I made for myself earlier. Didn't even think of a pic I was so hungry.
    Good news is I have another bag in the deep freeze.

    We ended up having glorified SOS. Had a nice piece of leftover tenderloin, sliced thin and warmed up in a mustard cream sauce with mushrooms and caramelized onions on a fresh baked roll. At least one glass of red wine, and a romantic movie to watch.

    I've always had tapioca as a sweet pudding. Making it into a savory dish/topping sounds really interesting.

    I dunno, but that seems like a pretty big/ heavy meal to serve your SO on Valentine's Day... While it's always a good idea to knock their socks off, there are better ways to accomplish it on V Day :D

    Bieniek, I like everything you did, but the coconut hazelnuts crisps had several family members looking over my shoulder. Right down our alley. "Can you make those?" . " We'll see."

    Cheers Mr,
    its 300 grams egg whites, 150 sugar, 300 grams of toasted and scrubbed and chopped hazelnuts, and 75 grams of coconut flour. I used Bob's Red Mill.
    Smear thin layer on a sheet of baking paper and bake at about 150 celsius, until golden and crisp. Open the oven and allow to cool, then cut stripes when not yet set.
