I am hoping someone will be able to help me. I am not the best cook in the world but would really like to make something nice for dh tomorrow evening.
I would plan to eat after ds goes to bed but can do preparation in the daytime.
Would be grateful for any ideas anyone has for main or dessert courses. Thankyou!!

Last year dh cooked me a great Weight Watchers Valentine meal - really tasty, not too heavy and ideal for getting you in the mood for Lurve..

I noticed that there web site is showing some similar recipes this year too. Have a peek here

Mmmm, rare fillet steak, some crunchy green beans, bearnaise sauce and chunky chips! Definitely the way to a man's heart.

Although the chips might be tricky...

Also, this is a delicious, easy, definitely not Weight Watchers starter


Smoked Salmon and goats cheese (4)

170g smoked salmon chopped
300g Chavroux goats cheese (or similar ie rindless)
3 tsp horseradish
2 tbsp fresh dill chopped

Mix together above. Decorate plates with rocket, cherry toms and wedge of lime. Place metal ring in centre and spoon in goats cheese mixture. Serve with melba toast or pitta bread.

Thanks everyone! Now I just have to decide which recipe to choose. The steak sounds like a good safe bet!

I maay have mentioned this one before but as a romantic desert goes it is a totally winner - toberlone fondue... melt a large toberlone and add small tub of double cream -- dip in strawberries, fruits, marshamallows, bits of cake.... totally divine and very sexy!!

Oh my god! Have just seen your dessert and it sounds fabulous. No good for my diet but I can blow it for one night! Am off to tescos!
