Queen's Valentine's Dinner

Each year, a Valentine's Queen is elected in my sorority
chapter.  She is a gal who gives of herself her friendship,
is supportive, and is a gal we can look up to and see
a smiling face.  She is a true sorority sister in every way.
She gets to wear our chapter's coveted Queen's Crown...
...and a Queen's Valentine's Dinner is given in her honor.
Her dinner was given at a sorority sister's home the other night.
The sister hostess set a lovely table made the dinner. She asked me
to make the dessert.  Days prior, I asked our Queen what
her favorite dessert was.  She responded with "cupcakes".
The dinner was going to be a plated-sit down dinner so I opted for
Creme Brulee with dinner and Cupcakes saved for later in the evening.
The red and pink cupcakes rested beautifully on the piano while we ate dinner.
The Valentine's dinner began with festive salads plated
on the table when the sorority sisters arrived.
We each sat down with our choice of red or white wine
to a delicious entree of chicken, roasted potatoes, and green beans.
I made Creme Brulee in shallow ramekins garnished with
raspberries, mint, and a flourless-chocolate cake heart
cut-out and drizzled with chocolate.
Here is the evening's actual dinner menu:
Mixed Green Salad w/Beet-Infused Goat Cheese Hearts
Chicken Parmesan w/Marinara Sauce, Avocados, and Mozzarella Cheese
Roasted Red Potatoes
Steamed Haricots Verts
Creme Brulee w/Flourless Chocolate Cake Heart Garnish
Rose-Piped Vanilla Bean Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream
The dinner was delicious!
After a lively dinner, we settled into the livingroom, each exchanged
Valentines, then ate the cupcakes - leaving four for the
Queen to take home to her family.
It was a fun evening and one we all look forward to every year.
I hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for visiting!
