Oh. Mah. Goodness, Friends! I haven’t been this excited to share a recipe with all y’all in I can’t even remember how long! After my excitement whipping up Baked Alaska last week, that’s really saying something. I’m especially excited because Valentine’s Day is tomorrow, and this is one fancy-pants looking Date Night dinner that can be done in 20 minutes!
If you’ve been around here for any length of time, you’ll know that I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I mean, I love pink hearts and glitter as much as the next gal–obviously–but I’d rather give cards and bake treats like Red Velvet Vanilla Marble Cupcakes for no other reason than to let you know that I’m thinking of you. I bake with my whole heart, and I don’t need a date reserved on the calendar to do it. Although, I do understand that gift giving and acts of service isn’t everyone’s Love Language, so sometimes it’s helpful to have a little reminder to do nice things for your people. Like on Valentine’s Day. Hearts, flowers, cupid’s arrow, CHOCOLATE. You know the drill.
For the men in my life? Valentine’s Day also means steak. Lots of it.
Since Bacon Slayer knows that my idea of purgatory is dining out in a restaurant on a holiday in which everyone dines out, we opt for in-house date nights on Valentine’s Day. We’re super romantic like that. I put soft music on in the background. We dress in nice clothing. (Read: I change from my usual yoga pants into proper attire.) I drape a nice linen table cloth on the table, and then set it with China and cloth napkins so that it feels exactly like we’re having a nice dinner at a fancy restaurant.
Well, except for the fact that our four sons are also present at the table.
And likely talking about gross bodily functions.
And undoubtedly making faux-fart noises and laughing uproariously about their fine dining humor.
But other than that, it’s very romantic!
Honestly? I wouldn’t change the company for the world. Bacon Slayer and I have learned to tune the boys right out as we gaze lovingly across the table into each others eyes. (Grossing our kids out in the process = bonus!) Although, I do try to use these Date Night dinners as a way to
force encourage more proper table manners in the boys. Their future wives will thank me one day!
Until then, I’ll continue to remind them that even though I’m their mom, I am still female, so they should do their best to reign in the flatulence humor and eat their meal with proper utensils. Oh, and use a napkin instead of their shirts. And probably refrain from picking their braces at the table.
The won’t actually be feral once we send them to college, right?
Believe me, once I serve Sirloin Steaks with Creamy Onion Sauce, no one at the table is doing anything but salivating at the thought of eating. Sirloin Steaks with Creamy Onion Sauce sears succulent steaks in hot cast iron to seal in the juices before adorning them with a rich onion cream sauce. I’m telling you that the sauce alone is worth the price of admission. *drool*
The best part of the entire affair is that Sirloin Steaks with Creamy Onion Sauce is a restaurant caliber meal that is on the table in about 20 minutes. (Less if you prefer steak to be more rare.) It’s a perfectly elegant dinner that the whole family will love!
Make these easy sirloin steaks for your next Date Night!
