Romantic Seafood Menu For Date Night In

March 20, 2017

We live in Sneads Ferry, North Carolina – known for the shrimp!  But not popular in the fine dining and restaurants arena.  But that is quite ok with Ralph and I.  We love to cook great meals at home!  I wanted to share a great Valentines Dinner menu or even if you are looking for a romantic seafood menu for a date night in.  

Valentines Day this year we are dining in at our very own waterfront property!  Can’t beat that!  So in order to set the mood I did splurge on some white tablecloths, fresh flowers and some little tea candles.  

But before dinner, we had to enjoy a nice walk at North Topsail Beach!  Photo taken with my Google Pixel phone – Panorama.

Look at how luck I am!  This handsome gentleman all dressed up in suit for me! How can I ever say no to him while he is reading Ernest Hemingway short stories while I cook?  I love spoiling Ralph…but he also spoils me.  Happy Valentines Day Ralph!
