Valentine’s Day is Just Around the Corner

Commentary:

The good news is…. Valentine’s Day lands on a Saturday this year…. So if you are dining in… it makes it much easier…. Now is the time to start thinking about what you are going to do for it…. try to think of things that can be prepped ahead…after all…. It’s your special day too.

For years after my husband passed away…. the special man in my life was my son…. and I always made something to celebrate the day. Obviously… when deciding on a menu… the menu options went from romantic to fun…. and there is absolutely nothing wrong with fun…. if that’s your style… go for it.

That brings me to another point…. parents with young children…. My husband and I rarely went out for Valentine’s Day… we found the restaurants crowded and noisy… we felt rushed…. the menus were abbreviated and expensive… so we always stayed in…. when Erik was very little… we had our little romantic dinner after he was put to bed. As he got older, he became part of our little celebration…. It was a meal that everyone enjoyed…… if that is your situation… a houseful of kids… or even 1 or 2…. it’s a celebration of love… and they are included…. just make it good for everyone.

So for the next two weeks…. we will have quite the mix of tips and recipes… some will be romantic “For Two” menus … some will be more casual….. and still others will be more family oriented…. I hope to give you a number of easy appetizers…. and desserts too….

And for you singles out there…. been there… done that…. honestly… I curled up with a book and a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and a spoon …. Hey… it was my day too!

Note: For you readers around the world… I’m not sure Ben & Jerry’s is international…. It’s an ice cream company here in the States that makes awesome ice cream…. They have nifty names like Chubby Hubby … and Cherry Garcia…. It’s a pretty cool company… click here for more info on them.

Newsflash!... I just checked out their site and they are in a number of countries around the world…. if you haven’t tried them…. definitely try a scoop soon!
