Here it is, the day before Valentine’s Day.

No time to make a 14 step layered chocolate cheesecake?

No?  Well, that’s okay.  Even if you wait until tomorrow, you can throw a few of these great Valentine inspired ideas together and look like a well prepared romantic just in time for dinner with your sweetheart.

So…what are YOUR plans for tomorrow?  Dinner out? Dinner IN?  Where are you going, or what are you making?  I still haven’t decided!

Well, at least I did order my custom Valentine’s cards. Whew.

Help me out!  I want to make dinner! What should I make? (Not dessert though – you’ll see why tomorrow!

Thanks, and have a great rest of your weekend!

We usually do dinner with the kids…because it’s frowned upon to not feed them…and then do a cheese platter and some sort of dessert after they are in bed. I gave up years ago on eating in restaurants with legions of other couples or trying to come up with a romantic masterpiece that isn’t outshined by dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets.

I hate fighting the crowd, too. Luckily, because we also have to feed the kid, he DOES eat whatever WE are eating, no matter what. He’s good about it, but given the choice, he’d be all over the dinosaur nuggets. Hope you have a nice romantic cheese tray! :)

Ours’ usually does, too. Sadly, sometimes the nuggets are for the husband. ;)

Definitely dinner in. Perhaps with one of these little treats!

Steak, of course! With twice baked potatoes, salad and crusty bread. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Can’t wait to see your dessert!
