{Romantic Dinner for Two}



Nothing like avoiding the hustle and bustle of the outside world and just enjoying a dinner for two at home outside with God's beauty for a special Valentine's dinner. 





 Nothing fancy or elaborate but a table for TWO is always romantic! 

I started us out with a simple appetizer than my man loves...stuffed mushrooms. I went with a two-cheese and garlic stuffing and needless to say...I AM SO GLAD I DID NOT FIX ANYMORE THAN THIS! YUM!


 Next came a simple salad made up romaine, carrots, celery, black olives and dressing.






Awe, then the main course...Chicken Alfredo over spaghetti squash noodles. YES, I do want you to have my recipe...You will love me for it later!

 And this bread in which my man loved.






 Nothing like ending the meal with chocolate covered strawberries

 A nice ending to a romantic dinner was followed by a little outside fire...

 With candles burning....





Yep...it surely suited us for a romantic dinner for two.





I will do a post with the recipe for the Chicken Alfredo with the spaghetti squash noodles soon. My new favorite is squash noodles!

Happy Valentine's Day Dear Friends.

Hugs and blessings, Cindy 

P.S. Thanks to so many that has wished me well wishes. I am doing MUCH better. I had a few setbacks from some side effects that I was having from medication but hopefully with the adjustment that has been made things will be looking up. God has been so merciful to me!

  15. Your dinner for two is making me hungry and it's too early to eat Chicken Alfredo. LOL! I had my first ever squash spaghetti noodles a few months ago and I honestly like it better than regular spaghetti noodles. The texture seems much lighter and oh my goodness much healthier. Glad you a feeling better. DO WHAT YOUR DOCTOR SAYS!

    1. Connie, this was my first time with the squash noodles and yes, very good and much healthier. I like different types of pasta for sure though. I am trying to be a good patient. LOL!

  17. So wonderful to see a post up from you dear Cindy! I so agree about shutting out the hustle and bustle of the world and just having a quiet romantic evening for two as you did for your hubby last evening. And to have beautiful weather that you could do it outside just makes it all the better...especially with the fire and candles! We had our dinner at home last evening also. :-)

    Thank you for stopping by today and leaving a comment at the blog. It warmed my heart to see that you were by. I'm praying for you and hope that the adjustments in the medication will be what you need so you can feel more like yourself again. Slowing down a bit may help? :-)

    Hugs to you, Girlfriend,
    Dianna

  18. Your Valentine meal looked delicious AND romantic! We were invited over to our daughter's and SIL's last night so will be having our Valentine dinner tomorrow night. I think we'll have it outside, as well, since the weather here in MO is unseasonably warm. We've started eating more spaghetti squash, too, (J needs to watch his carbs now) and we're actually having it with my homemade marinara tonight! I'll be interested in your Alfredo sauce recipe. I'm so glad to hear you're starting to feel better. Good luck with the meds. You're in my prayers, Sweet Cindy!!

    1. Thanks so much. The dosage change on medication has helped. The trip just wasn't in the plan this time. God sees the big picture and all we see is what is right in front of us. So glad He is in control and not me!
