Valentine's Day Food


So, what are all of you home cooks making for Valentine's Day? Or are you all going out? We are probably having sushi but my husband is going to make some sort of a dessert. I can't decide what to have him make though. Last year he made this cake and it was great. I normally do all of the sweets baking, but he is a really good baker too and has the patience I lack for making things like yeast breads and multiple step desserts so I would like to take advantage of this as much as I can. For my 25th birthday two years ago he made me this bombe (dome cake) with two kinds of chocolate mousse and brandy soaked strips of pound cake. So he is very capable. Any suggestions?
