Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day the weekend prior or on Tuesday night, time is of the essence. A well-executed meal is a great way to show someone you care, but it doesn’t have to take hours to put together. We’ve created a meal that combines the optimal amount of cooking and prepared foods, allowing for more time together.
First stop: Your Heinen’s Meat Counter. There you will find a Valentine’s Day treat – heart-shaped steaks*. Expertly cut to celebrate the symbol we associate with love, it’s a deliciously classic protein to celebrate this winter holiday.
- Given that grilling may be challenging this time of year, we recommend searing the outside of your steak in a pan (2-5 minutes), then roasting in the oven (350°F for 5- 15 minutes, depending on desired doneness).
Second stop: Your Heinen’s Gourmet Case. Our expert chefs love creating an amazing array of entrees and, for this meal, we recommend Grilled Asparagus, Garlic Grilled Shrimp, and Twice-Baked Potatoes. Flavorful. Colorful. Delicious.
Third stop: Your Heinen’s Wine Department. If you’re looking for a great value, select a bottle for under $10 in our Bin 55 section. Nearby is Club 92, full of wines rated 92 points or greater and exceptional in taste.
Time for dessert?
After a meal like that, you don’t need much for dessert. We recommend sticking with the simple-yet-delicious combination of strawberries, chocolates and bubbly.
Don’t forget the floral
The Floral Department is full of beautiful bouquets. Go with something simple or quickly make your own from the 3/$15 section. It’s hard to go wrong with flowers!
