The meal was WONDERFUL! I will be making the Bacon Mushroom sauce most likely all the time we cook steak. It was so much flavor. We did use the Maple Bacon because thats what he had on hand! It was really really good. The potatoes were good but not something I would write home about. I will try modifying that recipe next time and see what we get
The coconut cake was very good as well! Adam ate his whole piece and he isn't a coconut lover! Definatly a recipe to try!
This will be a long remember Valentines Day and a hard one to top. Have yourself a wonderful night everyone

Thanks for the recipes! I have a flank steak in the freezer and I think I'll have to use your bacon mushroom sauce when I make it!
