“Dinner for Bae” Surf N Turf

As Valentines Day approaches, I wanted to share a lit recipe so that you can cook a delicious meal for your bae instead of going out to eat and waiting a few hours to be seated. Home cooked meals are much more intimate as well as cost efficient. Usually the week before Valentine’s Day , your local grocer will have steaks and seafood at a lower price. My local grocer had ribeye for $5.77 a pound which is an amazing buy. I was able to get 2 ribeye steaks and shrimp for about $25, now imagine the cost of that at a fancy steakhouse! I suggest pairing this recipe with my Lemon Garlic Roasted Asparagus and Creamy + Dreamy Steakhouse Mashed Potatoes . So as with all the other recipes I have posted, make it and enjoy!
