Valentines Day, Bone Collector, Hockey… That all goes together, Doesn’t it??

Our Valentine’s Day began with pink heart shaped pancakes and by afternoon involved eating a quick pizza while watching Bone Collector then off to the rink for hockey practice.  It was a fun evening watching Dawson skate around and do the drills. Bella enjoyed watching while snacking on her favorite food, cheese puffs.  Kids zonked out after 10 and I followed within minutes. J
Our fun Valentine’s evening will be celebrated tomorrow night. On the menu is: Cheese Crusted Flat Iron Steak, Lobster Tail, thanks to Giant Eagle having it on sale, Roasted Asparagus , Smash Potatoes and for dessert, chocolate covered raspberries. I wanted strawberries but the grocery store was out. I think raspberries will be just as good. This is a big deal for us. Quite the fancy meal I think. I’ve never cooked a lobster tail but have watched my parents steam crab legs every Christmas so here’s to hoping I don’t ruin it! Here is the steak recipe I’ll be using.
Cheese Crusted Flat Iron Steak

1 lb of Flat Iron Steak
1/8 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper
½ Cup Shredded Cheddar
3 Tablespoons Crumbled Blue Cheese

Heat Broiler.
Season steaks with salt and pepper.
Broil, about 6 inches from heat, 8 minutes or until done the way you like your steak, turning after 5 min. Meanwhile, mix cheeses together.
Top steaks with cheese mixture.
Broil about 3 minutes until cheeses are melted and lightly browned.
