Hey love birds! Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and that means it’s time to start putting those romantic menu’s together! A few of my friends and I teamed up to bring you 15 Romantic Valentine’s Day Recipes! Check out these dessert and drink recipes!
The other day I read that Valentine’s Day is the most underrated holiday. Maybe? Justin and I are kind of tightwads. I mean really, on February 22, or March 30, or any other day of the year roses are less than half of what they cost on Valentine’s Day. I’d rather Justin give me flowers more often, on days when I’m completely not expecting it, than to blow the whole year’s flower budget (let’s pretend like we have one of those) on one bouquet. You see what I’m saying?
We’re also horrible, absolutely horrible about being stuck in massive crowds of people. It makes us feel like too many cattle squished in a trailer that’s a bit too small. Aghhhh! We’d rather go out to eat February 15th after everyone else has already gone home.
Now, don’t misunderstand me. We still love each other, and celebrate Valentine’s Day. We usually end up making a really nice dinner at home and let’s fact it, end up helping the kids with geometry and filling out reading logs! It’s all good though. I can wait until the crowd dies down and the prices settle a bit!
If you’re planning to stay in to celebrate each other this year check out this collection of 15 Romantic Valentine’s Day Recipes! You’re going to have a hard time choosing one. Maybe we should celebrate all month-long so we can fit them all in!
