I had to come up with a special Valentines meal, I just hate going out to a restaurant on Valentines and having to order from a "Special Menu" for that night. Usually overpriced and not as good as eating in the same places on a normal night. So I did Lobster Tails, Steamed Blue Lake Green Beans, Herb Rice, with butter and a salad. This will work well for any special occasion or just because.
RICE: melt butter add rice and coat in the butter cook about 5 minutes on medium heat
add rest of ingredients, bring to boil then lower to a simmer and cover. Cook about 30 minutes until broth is absorbed
GREEN BEANS: clean beans and snap off stems. place in steamer over salted water and steam for 5 minutes. Top with butter, salt and pepper. Optional; I like to top mine with either balsamic or spicy vinegar
LOBSTER TAILS: place a bamboo skewer thru tails to keep them from curling in steamer. Steam over salted water for 7-9 minutes. Remove bamboo skewer. Serve with melted butter.
