By Leah O’Donnell; Healthy Planet Lifestyles Editor

This Valentine’s Day, treat yourself and the special someone in your life to a delicious meal without all the preparation and planning that normally comes with it.  The Art of Entertaining has a Valentine’s Dinner for Two that is a four course meal.  Start with the warm baked brie that has caramel over the top, cranberries, and pecans served with toast points.  This delightful starter will melt in your mouth.  Next is the fresh, light mixed field greens salad.  This combination of mixed field greens, campari tomatoes, parmesan cheese, and toasted pine nuts tossed with their homemade fresh basil vinaigrette will be the perfect compliment to your main course dinner.  Make Valentine’s Day all about love when you fall in love with the beef tenderloin medallions that are sautéed with portabella mushroom butter.  The shrimp and scallop augratin with fresh spinach, that is over mini penne, the crisp asparagus spears, and Italian loaf make this meal complete and will be a scrumptious treat for you and your Valentine.  The final course in this five star meal is the appropriately named, Grand Finale.  This rich chocolate torte with fresh raspberry sauce looks as good as it tastes and is the ideal end to the perfect dinner.  The two of you can enjoy all of this for just $60.00, which is a bargain, especially if you compare it to the cost of eating out, leaving a tip, paying for drinks, and possibly even a babysitter.   If you are looking for a dinner gift this Valentine’s Day or a smaller option, then pick up the Valentine’s Survival Kit from The Art of Entertaining.  The Valentine’s Survival Kit comes in a decorative, reusable gift bag filled with Webster Cheese Dip and lavosh crackers to start, two 8 oz. beef tenderloin filets with steak butter, two heaping twice baked potatoes, an Italian loaf with strawberry butter, and two chocolate turtles to top off the meal.  This darling bag is the perfect gift for someone you love or a great choice for a three course meal.  The Valentine’s Survival Kit is available for only $40.00 per bag and comes with pink tissue and is tied with a bow.  Treat yourself and the one you love this Valentine’s Day by enjoying home made food that you don’t have to spend all night creating, so you can spend your time with that special someone.  Call The Art of Entertaining today at 314-963-9899 or stop in and place your order at 8796 Big Bend Blvd., Webster Groves, MO 63119.  You can also visit them at www.theaofe.com.
