#ValentinesDay #SurfandTurf Lunch Date Featuring #Freshfinds from #TheFreshMarket

On Friday, I decided to use my coupon in the mail and used it towards making a special Valentine's Day Lunch for my son which would included Seafood, Steak with Sauteed Mushrooms and Onions, Steamed Asparagus, and my homemade Mac and Cheese!

The gentleman at Seafood Counter also helped with choosing a nice steak to for the special lunch for me and Nathan! I decided on this special cut because you don't have to marinate to make it tender because it already is a "Great Steak" with just the right amount of meat/fat ratio so it doesn't dry out and still juicy, tender, and flavorful when I serve it!

I got these Asparagus and Baby Portebella Mushroom at the produce section and their were both fresh for the special lunch!

My son, Nathan, is a kid who is beyond "fish sticks" and loves eating seafood with grown up taste! I got the World Famous Salmon cakes, Deviled Crabs, and the Tempura shrimp to share with the steak dinner!

Of course, I got a small bag of coffee for Mom to enjoy Valentine's Weekend and chocolate shaped fish and crab for Nathan because he loves seafood and sea creatures!

Unfortunately, I don't have pictures of the finished meal BUT Steak was very tender, juicy and delicious, mac and cheese turned out fabulous! And Nathan eat the Asparagus like they were French Fries first before eating the Seafood and the Mac and Cheese! :) And of course, I saved some of the steak for my Mom when she got off her shift for her Valentine's Day dinner at home! As single Moms and Mothers of Autism Families, its important to show love to one another in special ways to family members like making mealtime special and don't compare yourself to the romantic dinners that are being advertise on social! You are loved and you are special, so I hope you treated yourself and the ones you love!

Until next time...
