SweetHeart Supper

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.
