New-Age Valentine's: Ladies Who Do Dinner

...And we cook!

Absolutely cannot resist putting pictures up from the very fancy and fantastic girls-night-in with gorgeous friends A (whose debut appearance on this blog occurred here) and YS, of pretty pink party infamy.

Rule of the night: No boys - and putting what our mamas gave us on display!


A's smoked salmon and mango salad (with balsamic vinegar dressing)

Freshly-shucked oysters with lemon

The main: My crispy-skin salmon (insanely easy, and I can't claim credit for the technique, but guaranteed to impress!):

YS' side of roast mushrooms, aubergine, onion, capsicum, tomatoes, potatoes and carrot (yeah the lady worked hard!):

To finish: Estrogen-fueled chocolatey desserts (of course!):

My now-stalwart chocolate fondant, with Sara Lee French Vanilla ice-cream

YS' to-die-for chocolate strawberries

Lethal combination. Enough said.

And then we wiled the night away with raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens (read: curious card games and tantalizing talk). Like all good girls in white dresses and blue (satin) sashes should of course.

Ahh ladies, best (early) Valentine's Day dinner ever! Hi-fives and knowing smiles all around - hurrah for being girly girls!


  1. What a great idea for a V-day dinner! Looks like it was a lot of fun - and the food looks great too.

  2. We should do a foodie dinner outing! Me, you and ur sis =)

  3. Oysters!!! I'm going to Tassie next week so these pics are just tempting me even more! Agreed with 'enough said' LOL
