romantic meal for two

This was my table setting for a romantic meal for two that S and myself had on Valentines Day. I love the French shabby chic look so I tried to recreate it for the evening. Prosecco adds the finishing touch! Can you tell how much I love the colour pink?

Smoked salmon with prawns, horseradish cream and lime vinaigrette.
What a delicious and stunning starter! An easy twenty minutes of preparation and voila! The flavours all work so well together; a real taste of heaven! A real dinner party pleaser! The beauty of this recipe is you can make it in advance. I will definitely be making this for a meal with friends.

Stuffed chicken breast wrapped in pancetta

Another dinner party special! Simple and easy to prepare, this dish had a real wow factor! I didn't expect this to be as good as it was with it being so simple to make, but I was sooooo wrong! Melt in the mouth food!

Raspberry and rose trifles
A perfect Valentines Day dessert. Talk about save the best till last! Now I do like a good dessert but there are no words to describe how divine this trifle was. How many different words are there for delicious! Cointreau or raspberry liqueur can be used for a different twist too. Looking at the picture is really starting to make my mouth water!

What are your ideal recipes for a romantic meal?
