Aphrodisiac Valentine’s Menu
Aphrodisiac foods are all about stimulating your libido or sex drive. These can be foods that are sensually shaped like banana’s or asparagus, foods that put you in the mood like whipped cream and wine, or foods that increase blood flow, energy and sex hormones such as oysters, chocolate and hot peppers.
If you’re staying in this Valentine’s Day and you’re looking for something simple and sexy to share with your lover, this may be the menu you’ve been looking for:
Arugula, pomegranate, honey, shell-fish and alcohol come together in the simplest form. If your kitchen allows these dishes are extra romantic when tackled as a couple. This menu is designed to please all your senses and leave you with an evening of romance or just some fabulous food.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what order to cook in if you’re making the full menu:
● Boil the water
● Make the Salad Dressing
● Cook the Crab
● Cook the Pasta in the Crab Broth
● Remove Crab Meat from the Legs
● Shred the Cheese
● Mince Garlic/Shallots/Parsley
● Make the Snow Crab Mac n’ Cheese, hold warm
● Clean & remove the Mussel Beards
● Make the Drunken Mussels
● Toss the Arugula with the Vinaigrette and Pomegranate Seeds

I’m not a fan of dining room tables so I spread out a tablecloth and scattered some Dove Chocolates around to get that extra libido boost and for a rustic, picnic themed dinner. Enjoy!
