A Truly Romantic Valentine Dinner: As Time Goes By

If aphrodisiacs were good enough for the Gods, then they're good enough for us modern mortals. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, liberate your libido with an aphrodisiac-fueled cocktail hour, starting with a platter of raw oysters, a chilled bottle of Champagne and your favourite crooner playing softly in the background. 

Then turn up the heat in the romance department with Spaghettini con Fruitti di Mare. Like all foods of the sea, the seafood’s aphrodisiacal history can be traced back to the ancient Greeks who believed their goddess of love, Aphrodite, was born of the sea and that all ocean creatures were her playthings in the game of love. That does it for me. Seafood Pasta it is!

And for the grand finale, Molten Chocolate Lava Cake, rich in all those 'feel good' endorphins — nature's natural high — and it tastes sinfully good! So get the pasta sauce prepped and the Chocolate Lava Cake ready to go, pop in your Casablanca DVD and get ready for the Ultimate TV Dinner...because, as all true romantics know, and you must remember this...

A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply 
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo 
They still say, "I love you." 
On that you can rely 
No matter what the future brings 
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs 
Never out of date. 
Hearts full of passion 
Jealousy and hate. 
Woman needs man 
And man must have his mate 
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story 
A fight for love and glory 
A case of do or die. 
The world will always welcome lovers 
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers 
As time goes by.
