Food

My (mostly) make ahead Pinterest Valentines meal

Valentines Day, and I’m at home with the kids for half term so I’ve spent the day preparing a fab three course meal to celebrate Valentines Day. As always I’ve dug around Pinterest to find my recipes.

For a starter I made these goats cheese puff pastry tarts – ready rolled pastry made them so easy, just a couple of minutes to put together then put them in the oven for about 20 mins, they can come out 5-10 mins before you serve.


For the main course I went for a beef stifado – I always love Greek food and I found this recipe, but I cooked mine in the slow cooker for 4 hours so I could get it started early and have no last minute prep. I served it with Orzo, which just takes 10mins to cook.


And to finish – a fab eton-mess style desert, I made all the bits up in the morning then just layered it together while I waited for the starter to cook.


All great recipes and not much stress in the making – time for chocolates and prosecco….
