So I thought I'd share a little peek at what Valentine's Day dinner looks like around these parts. Hubs and I have never been ones to go out to dinner to celebrate holidays like this. We have no desire to fight the crowds and aren't keen on waiting forever for a coveted table for two. Instead, we like to celebrate with a delicious meal at home.
While we will be dining together as a family tonight (before opening gifts!), I'll be honest and tell ya there's slim to no chance that the kids will enjoy any of the menu I have planned, except dessert, of course. The kiddos will probably enjoy some fine dining that includes a pb&j or grilled cheese, fresh fruit and yogurt.
But for hubs and I, well, we will be dining on this tonight:
And for those who are interested, here are the links to the recipes I'll be using:
- Stuffed Mushrooms
- Peppercorn-Crusted Steak
- Twice Baked Potatoes
- Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars
Here's hoping I can muster up the strength to hit the grocery store with two kids and find the time to get all of this done by tonight!
Happy belated Valentine's Day, hubs (and the rest of y'all)!
