my Valentine’s Day dinner

Who needs a boyfriend or a fancy restaurant when you can have a delicious, home cooked dinner at home for Valentine’s Day! My roommate and I decided to stay in so I cooked a (romantic?) meal of mushroom risotto and sauteed lobster. To be honest, I had planned to make seared scallops but I went to two different markets and they were all out! Is that like the go-to dish people make on V Day or something? So I decided to be adventurous and cook lobster instead. For the sauteed lobster: I boiled two lobster tails in salted water until the shells turned red. Then I removed the shells & chopped the lobsters into big chunks. Melt butter in a pan and add minced garlic & sautee the lobster. I have never cooked with lobster before so I didn’t really know what I was doing but I did learn that the key to making it tasty is add alot of butter… I used about 1/4 cup but it still could’ve used more butter. Thank you …
