When I asked my friend what she and her husband were doing for Valentine’s Day this year, she replied: “Nothing. Valentine’s is for the unmarried and childless.”
Which seems a rather bleak statement.
Although Hubs and I are well past the blushing romance stage, we still like to do something to mark the day. It’s a day to celebrate love for pity’s sake! Where’s the harm in that?!
And it doesn’t have to be a deluge of commercial, meaningless present-giving. We don’t give gifts. Instead I make him a homemade card (with my awesome arts skillz), bake him something tasty and we make a pact to spend some time together.
Time that’s uninterrupted by relatives, friends, social media, work, household obligations and all the other flotsam and jetsam of life.
So that’s what I’m doing tomorrow for Valentine’s Day Eve. I’ll be back posting from Monday and I wish you all a lovely weekend with your loved ones.
If you’re in a cooking mood, here’s a few suggestions:
- Valentine’s Sliders
- Cookie Dough Hearts
- I Love You Truffles
- Pecan Brownie Hearts
- Valentine’s Morrocan Style Burgers
- Be Mine and Pass the Cake
- Love Is…A Slice of Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake
- Mocha Chocolate Hearts
- Baked Custard Hearts
