Tonight I decided to surprise my fiance by having a fancy dinner ready when he got home from work. It was even better that it was so easy and took only about 30 minutes to make. I really thought about what types of food he would like so yes, I even made steak (way out of the ordinary for the almost vegetarian!). Here was the menu:
- Baked Brie with a Raspberry Glaze
- Ribeye Steak with melted Blue Cheese Sauce, Mixed Green Salad, and a French Baguette
- Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream
Baked Brie with a Raspberry Glaze Recipe
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 package of fresh or frozen raspberries
1 wheel brie cheese (8-12 ounces)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the first three ingredients together and let sit for about five minutes or until the sugar is dissolved. Cut off the top of the brie and spread the mixture over the top. Cook for 10-12 minutes and serve with crackers or bread.
Ribeye Steak with Melted Blue Cheese Sauce
2 ribeye, or any type, steak
1/4 cup blue cheese
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp chives
Mix in a small pan and cook over low heat. Make sure not to boil it. Takes about 5 minutes to melt. Salt and pepper your steak and place on the George Forman Grill. It takes about 6 minutes to cook to medium rare. Spread the melted blue cheese over top and serve immediately.
The chocolate cake was from Safeway. The best kind is the one with frosting lines through it. Add Ice Cream!
Hope you have a great night if you decide to make this. Let me know how it turns out!
