Dinner for Two ,Creme Bruleé

Yesterday in Brazil it was commemorated the day of the lovers (St Valentine’s Day) , I m lucky because I commemorate twice, in the official date that’s here in February and in June, finally certain habits don't forget and my husband, always commemorates with me both date .Yesterday I made a dinner for two. A file mignon with fresh champignon sweat in butter accompanied by a philo pie, with parsley .Stuffed with zucchini and eggs. Of dessert I made a crème bruleé that I find ideal for these autumnal days. We open a good Spanish of Rivera del Duero ( Emina03 ) and after the cream we drank our favorite dessert wine the chestnut and aromatic muscatel of Alexandria of Cavas de Santos, a different night between a ordinary week
