Although I don’t feel particularly sentimental about Valentine’s Day, I am Armenian after all, so I’ll take any opportunity to celebrate. In college going to see the Vagina Monologues was pretty much a ritual, followed by big dinners with girlfriends. Since I’ve been with Brooke, we have opted to avoid the busy restaurants and cook a nice meal together at home, taking a break from our hectic lives to relax and celebrate us.

On our menu this year…
Cocktail: Ginger/Lemon w/vodka (Ciroc because it’s gluten-free) for him & w/soda-water for me
Entree: Sri-Lankan grilled chicken w/ cucumber-salad
Dessert: Slow-cooked pears with Coconut Ice Cream

I started these right when I began prepping dinner and they were ready to go by the time we finished eating. I usually top them with coconut ice cream, but I didn’t have any the day that I was shooting these for the blog, so I paired them with warm strawberries. They are delicious with this Paleo Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream from Hollywood Homestead.

    This is great! I have done something similar with apples, but I steam them first and then just warm them in a pan with cinnamon and I usually put a couple of slices of banana in the mix to make it more gooey. I hadn’t thought of using the crockpot and I love the spices you’ve added!

    Kiersten! That sounds delicious with the banana. I was going to try one soon with apples and nuts, but I had not thought of adding banana! I may have to throw that into the mix too
