Delfts Blauw Give-Away

Thanks for entering, everyone! Random.org gave me #59, which is Linda. Please contact me to claim your fondue set!

I ran into this tapas cheese fondue in one of our souvenir stores downtown and there was no way this wouldn’t be my next give-away. C’mon, admit that a Delfts Blauw tapas fondue set with windmill painted on it screams ‘buy me!’.

I own one of these—I made an Adobo-laced beer cheese fondue in it—and it’s a great snack. Try it when you have friends over! You’re not limited to cheese fondue either; why not to spoil your kids with a chocolate fondue now and then? The size of this makes it a heck of a lot safer.

How to enter? Oh, that’s simple. Just let me know what special Valentine’s dinner you have planned! Maybe I can adopt an idea… or two. What can I say? Even foodbloggers need inspiration now and then *shrugs*

No entries after Monday, february 18!

      I don’t have a specific Valentine’s themed dinner–but planning to make grilled chicken, Greek salad and some sort of rolls.  Good, simple and yummy!

      Niet helemaal mijn eigen idee, maar ik ga waarschijnlijk dit maken: http://missnatural.nl/miss-natural-natuurlijke-valentijnsmenu/
      Of spruitjessoep, die heb ik ook nog gevonden, hahahaha! Ik hoop zooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo dat ik win, deze zou zo mooi in mijn Delfts blauwe huisje passen :)

      No inspiration here, my hub and I are taking the night off from cooking. We are going out to a nice dinner at the Lakeview Lodge. All though some chocolate covered strawberries may be in order when we get home and your beer cheese fondue sounds great for the weekend. I love the fondue set, you should see my old ugly green colored fondue set, I definitely need a new one!

      As my husband and I took our belated honeymoon to Barcelona, Spanish tapas are “our food” now. ;)

      I’m making Patatas Bravas, Camarones de Ajo and Champinones al Ajillo, with a big pitcher of sangria.

      Believe it will be steak, baked potatoes, and broccoli with a cheese sauce.  Cookies are to be made today for dessert.  Happy Valentines Day to all.

      I’m leaning toward making a dish of wilted andijvie topped with spiced lentils topped with pan-seared kabeljouw finished off with diced black and green olives.

      Well, no special Valentine’s dinner for me and my hubby because movers are delivering our furniture tomorrow, so it will be a rather hectic day.  Perhaps just a simple chicken salad. The important thing is that we are together!

      No special dinner for us! Our son has baseball practice right at dinner time. We’ll to putout to a restaurant on another night for our Valentines date.

      Since we have family in town it will have to be a hearty beef stew.  Nothing fancy for us, just hearty food and lots of it.  I think some toasted sourdough bread on the side will hit the spot.  Yum!!

      I wish I could inspire but, since I am not cooking nor do I have a significant other, I have nothing.  My apologies.

      For my Greek hubby of 30+ years, I make Dolmathas with Avgolemono sauce (Stuffed Grape Leaves with lemon-egg sauce), nice rice pilaf (with chicken broth and hint of lemon and some cut up vegetables), and of coarse a nice green salad with hearty lettuce (romaine or green leaf), feta, Kalamata olives, tomatoes and some slice red onion with a home made Greek vinaigrette dressing. I may even make Greek style green beans. I learned most of these recipes from his mother years ago when she was still living. And before you ask…he does not cook. 
      I would love to win the “Delfts Blauw” tapas fondue set. It’s beautiful!

      Probably oeufs en cocotte with porcini mushrooms and bacon, and some spicy junk food as an appetizer (jalapeno poppers maybe? something spicy and crunchy). Not overly romantic, just delicious food shared with a loved one.

      Unfortunately, my husband is working on V Day, we did our dinner Sunday. We did Greek food, and it was soooo good!

      My husband will be working the night shift on Valentines Day :(  Being married to a police officer we’re used to celebrating special events a little early or a bit late and he’s off on the 15th.  We’re going to have a “Date Night In”, The kids go to bed a bit early and we’ll have a late dinner together…just the two of us.  I’ll be making lasagne and a salad.  His gift…a book of homemade coupons that he can redeem in the days and weeks to follow.

      I will devote most of the time on the dessert, so something easy for dinner. Smoked ham in a mustard-herb dressing, served with asparagus. A bottle of good wine..and for the closure a little time -consuming, but worthy, dessert: Coffee and walnut cake with coffee-cheese topping..Can’t wait!

      LOL, I came to you looking for menu inspiration! I am just getting over a flu bug so I haven’t been able to think of food for a few days.  I hope we come up with something, quick.  Happy Valentine’s Day!

      I’m giving my husband a Dutch treat basket– things he loves from the Netherlands that we dont’ usually get in the States. Drop,  vlokken, Muisjes, mergepijpjes, bokkepootjes…you get the picture. So I think I’ll keep it light and make finger foods so he can enjoy all that other stuff! Dolmathakia, feta with greek olives, fresh bread and butter (for all those sprinkles!), and some tiny swedish meatballs. And wine, of course!!
