Day 10 - Valentine's Day

It is always fun and romantic to be on this island for Valentine's Day especially if you are with someone you love! And if the sun is shining bright! We started out the day exchanging cards with coffee made and served by Al. And we continued to exchange cards through out the day....mine homemade and Al carefully selected at Hallmark's. I had already received fresh flowers from the Farmer's Market  Al took his walk and I was on the computer.  We enjoyed breakfast of sausage and eggs with our Florida citrus.  The day turned cloudy around noon but then back to  sunny in time for us to spend the afternoon on the beach with some good books.

Our special dinner included filets perfectly prepared by Chef Al.....have you noticed his food is always perfect?  I prepared a portabella mushroom and onion sauce to accompany the steaks and corn on the cob,  green beans, and chopped salad with my Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. Wines served were a white and a red Villa Antinori  Toscana. And there were more cards with dinner.

Hi Theresa! Sounds like a great day......your talk of vinaigrette reminds me to ask if you've been to the olive oil and balsamic vinegar shop at Venice? We got a delicious grapefruit white balsamic there - yummy!
