Happy Valentine’s Day! How will you be celebrating the Day of Love? With your Significant Other? Close friends? Or maybe even yourself for some serious self-care. Mr E and I rarely ever go out on Valentine’s Day. Mostly because neither of us particularly care about the Greeting Card Holiday. And because we don’t want to deal with crowds, price fix menus, and remembering to make a reservation. Want to hear more about it? Check out our teaser Podcast episode all about Valentine’s Day!
However you choose to celebrate Valentine’s Day, make it come from the heart. And many times that means it may be something handmade. While you can make a card or coupon book like a kindergartener, I prefer to make a killer meal. If you need a little inspiration for what to make your sweetie this Valentine’s Day, check out this menu of dietitian-created Romantic Recipes to celebrate.
Want to know what Mr E calls the meals he lovingly makes for me? Check out our Valentine’s Day Podcast Episode to find out!
