Great Valentine's Day Ideas!

05 February 2009
Every year I ask Dan what he wants for Valentine's Day and every year the answer is the same. He always wants me to cook him a fantastic meal.

Our Valentine's Day dinners are a tradition that goes back to before we were married. Our first one was a frozen lasagna I reheated, frozen garlic bread, and a salad ordered from a restaurant so it would be fancy. I was a teenager and so impressed that I payed for and "cooked" everything myself. We dined at my house over candlelight at the kitchen table while my mom was banished to eating on the couch.Dan bought me the most beautiful card, well he talked his mom into letting him get it for me. I still have that card. It cost $8, that is probably the most expense card I've ever received in my life. Oh the memories.

Fast forward to Valentine's Day 2009. I am at a loss as to what to do this year. These dinners are by far the most complicated meals I make all year long. I go all out on food, table setting, music, the works. The fact that my ideas seem to have dried up is not good! So, I was thrilled when I found these valentines day ideas. I found recipes I know I'll be using, decorating tips, and much more. There is even a section about how to celebrate Valentine's Day without breaking the bank. I was thrilled with the variety of valentines day ideas I found and am eager to try many of them out. Now, my only problem is deciding which ones to do!

SAVING is good.
