Roses are red, violets are blue, we love love, but if you don’t, we get that too. (Also, violets are purple.) The point is, we understand mixed feelings re: Valentine’s Day, which is why we’re offering a mix of a menu; some romantic stuff, some non-romantic stuff (although we think fried chicken is indeed damn romantic), and a lotta chocolate, obviously.
Happy Love Day Fam!!
Put a large pot of salted water on to boil. Cook those ravs for about 2 min. While you wait for them to cook, pour the cream sauce into a saucepan and warm it over medium until it simmers. When the raviolis are ready, add ‘em to the warmed cream sauce. Toast up the focaccia, mix up the salad and add the rosé vinaigrette. Then, plate it alllll up. Sprinkle the nori crumbs on the creamy ravioli and enjoy!
Eat Your Feelings Fried Chicken
So, you could plate this up all nice and fancy, or, you could sit your ass down on the couch like we would, pop all of this on your lap, and just dig into all this finger-licking-glory. Self-love y’all. Preheat your oven to 375F, place your fried chicken on an aluminum foil-lined sheet tray and put it in the oven for 12-15 min or until heated through. When there’s about 5 min left on your timer, pop the cornbread in alongside. Ding Ding! Out of the oven, onto the plate, with a little coleslaw and potato salad on the side.
Arugula + Berry Salad
Have you ever seen a s-e-x-y salad? This one may turn your head. Like seriously, d@mn, look at that thing. Dump into a mixing bowl, sprinkle in your white chocolate, pistachio & strawberry dust and a little salt and pepper. Drizzle in your vinaigrette and toss, toss, toss! (insert heart eye emoji!) Then, eat your chocolate salad.
Beer + Cheese Fondue
Fon-due you wanna have a good time? Okay, We’ll see ourselves out. But first, pour the fondue into your pot and place over medium-low heat. The name of the game here is to heat the fondue through without scorching, so definitely give it a good stir every now and then. Once it’s hot and steamy, you’re good! Should take about 7-10 minutes. When warmed through, pour the deliciousness into a bowl. While you’re waiting, pop the pretzel bites onto a foil-lined sheet tray and warm in a 350F oven for 5-7 minutes. No fancy plating here. This one is for getting down and dirty and dipping with FERVOR. FER. VOR.
(Kids) Breakfast for Dinner
We have it on good authority that there are *plenty* of not-kids eating “kids” breakfast for dinner tonight. Around here, there are no rules ever, and sure as hell not on V-day. Anyway, all you’ll want to do here is remove the fruit and dulce sauce and microwave the rest for 2 minutes. Remove the food from the mic, pour sauce all over that waffle, and go for it. Don’t forget to add that fruit back in, too.
Welp, this one needs no introduction. Toss the cake on an aluminum foil-lined sheet tray and place in a 350F oven for 4-5 minutes. To serve, flip your lava cake onto a plate so that the smaller end is facing upward. Top with a big ol’ glug of the creme anglaise and sprinkle raspberries over the top. Get your cameras ready for the big molten reveal and dig in people!
Love You Choco-Lots
First, shake shake shake (shake your booty). Then, you pick from here. For a mocktail, Pour about 6 oz over ice and top it with some milk! Give it a little stir. (You can heat it up too, whichever you prefer!) Then all you gotta do is get to sippin’! For a cocktail, Pour 4 oz over ice and add a 2oz. shot of bailey’s + 2oz. Of vodka. Shave some of that fresh chocolate w/that adorable little grater and put some delicious chocolate on your rim! Shake, Shake Shake,, and then sip!
Either way, toast to your badass self.
And that’s it! Valentine’s Day, solved. #weareWECO
