So today, June 12, is Valentine’s Day in Brazil. And right now you must be saying WHAAAAAAAAT THE….!!!!!? Well, it is true. In Brazil, February 14th is just a regular day and Saint Valentine is… pretty much a regular saint, if you’ve even heard of him. Yikes!
The Brazilian day to celebrate love is actually June 12th, the day before Saint Anthony’s day. We celebrate love on the eve of his day because St. Anthony, is known as the Marriage saint. Sooooooo, on or around June 12th in Brazil, believers say a lot of prayers to saint Anthony hoping to find love… Awwww
Now I don’t know if you celebrate Valentine’s day or not, but I sure know you eat and must like a good juicy steak, dontcha!?? Great! This delicious rib-eye recipe is perfect for a dinner date and to me is still one of the best ways to say ‘Eu Te Amo’ to my valentine.
You can easily make it on the grill, or stove top, and for side dish I chose to just sautée some kale and collard greens like this (no bacon this time). Added a little buttery toast, some good wine, good music and done!
