Say “I Love You” This Valentine’s Day with a DIY Clambake for Two
They say food is love, so why not really impress your sweetie this Valentine’s Day with a home-cooked dinner for two? Shake things up from your usual dinner out, and instead enjoy a romantic evening at home, clambake style. Here are four ways to craft a menu to remember this Valentine’s Day!
Set the Scene
Set the scene for your big night in with a custom playlist (think: music from your first concert together or your favorite songs). You’ll also want to create a romantic atmosphere by adding special touches to the table setting like a fresh bouquet of flowers, printed menu, or a handwritten love note in place of a table card.
Say Yes to Lobster
We always say yes to lobster, especially on Valentine’s Day! Bright red in color, this crustacean will add a spark of love to your dinner plate.
Take the stress out of meal prep by ordering our Clambake to Travel, which comes with the works: lobster, steamers, mussels, chourico, corn on the cob, red bliss potatoes and onions. Simply add water or beer, pop it on the stovetop, and dinner is served!
Create a Signature Cocktail
Maybe you can’t order your favorite cocktail (or mocktail) at the bar, but why not make one yourself? Get some inspiration here, and don’t be afraid to get creative by giving it your own spin! If you’re more of a wine connoisseur, white wine like Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling pairs best with seafood.
Don’t Forget Dessert
End your romantic dinner with a little something sweet! Keep it simple with Chocolate Covered Strawberries, Strawberry Shortcake or a slice of pie from your favorite neighborhood bakery.
Wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day from the team at B & M Catering!
