its hard not to heart heart day


Let me be perfectly honest - valentines day when I was a kid was probably the same for me as it was for you, full of anguish and anticipation and all those other things that kids felt except..and this is very assuming of me...except I got way too many valentines stuffed into my little shoe box. This little valentines heyday of the simplicity of the little cards only lasted until 4th grade after that things only got worse, and by worse I mean more of the same. Lets fast forward many, many years and we get to where we are now and let me tell you payback is a bitch. I no longer get way too many valentines and thats just fine with me since the whole she-bang got me a little burnt on the notion but I do make sure to treat the valentines in my life right.

Nothing says you care more than a nice brunch and nothing says brunch better than poached eggs and nothing says poached eggs better than poached eggs in a hash brown potato cup and nothing helps you say this better than salmon and hollandaise sauce.

There I said it.

So if you want to impress someone and you want it to really look impressive then serve this up one after another after another until they can take it no more. They will be impressed.

I thought my homemade pasta was love, but your poached eggs and smoked salmon might have me beat. Those are definitely two of the sexiest foods on earth.

Oh my! I'm trying not to drool! this looks scrumptious, I think I need to make some of these for a brunch for me and the hubby :D

Vickie said...

I'm speechless ... your Valentine. Is a very lucky person, indeed. And that presentation is oh-la-la as always. Mmm!

wow dude, this is a perfect V-Day lunch! Your wife is lucky having an executive chef at home!

Anette said...

I didn't get lunch like that today, nothing like it at all! I feel a bit sorry for myself, but I bet your Valentine deserved it perfectly!

Your Valentine is very lucky.

I'll be sticking with heart shaped cake, strawberry chiffon pie and boxes of chocolates. I'm not much good at pretty eggs.

Happy Valentine's Day, Dog.

i was scheduled to go to brunch yesterday and my guest cancelled. at said brunch i was supposed to have a dise very similar to this one. As I sit here looking at it, oh so lovingly (it is Valentines Day After all), i am pained to know that this could have been in my belly and it sadly isnt.
Oh the pain!
but what a beauty! where do you get such fresh salmon??? looks phenom! (thinking we should do a potluck!!!)

Eggs and Salmon for brunch will do wonders for any day brunch. Potatoes is a good addition.

I think, you still get Valentine's.

:)

Happy Valentine's

That's a lot better than a box of Godiva. At least you can eat it in one seating!

Will You be my valentine? Yum!

Beautiful brunch idea and oh-so romantic for the special occasion! I have to admit I'm a whip and I'm very intimidated by the idea of poaching eggs (probably the most difficult way to cook perfect eggs)

What an exquisite presentation, and so romantic with the rose shaped smoked salmon. Your brunch dish is enough to make anyone swoon!

Jill said...

No BS...that is one of the most beautifully styled dishes I've ever seen.

Joanne said...

So you're suggesting an eggs benedict eating contest? I'm in.

TavoLini said...

I love it! Nothing says Christo like some well prepared eggs :)

Happy Valentines to you, Banana and the Pup!

Just gorgeous, I'd take the salmon over Canadian bacon any day!
