Valentine's Day Meals! What's for dinner!

Well, its all gone pear shaped on me having not wanted to eat out but have a smoochy evening in I gave in and let DH make a reservation. Now, I have woken up as sick as a dog, and I will neither be eatiing out or cooking

Poor DH will have to rustle something up for himself, or get takeaway, while I sip tea slowly and try not to think abou my lovely box of chocolates!

So cheer me up, what's everybody else cooking tonight!

There are two plus inches on the ground and it is ice.

No one is going anywhere for a while, Valentine's day or not.

The snow/ice storm ruined my plans to have a Giordano's pizza Fedexed here from Chicago this week so tonight we are having a baguette, d'afinois cheese and defrosted beef/vegtable soup. I have some bubbly in the fridge too.

Toots, I feel guilty, I have a Giordanno's 2 miles from my house. Next time I have some I will think of you. The bubbly will help! Happy Valentines Day!

Since Lou and I actually live so far apart we only get the pleasure of each other's company on weekends, vacations and big holidays. It's such a strain the next day to get to work if we try to do something during the week. There have been Valentine's Days in the past when he's made the drive, but I'm glad that wasn't planned for tonight. We're both experiencing a wicked ice storm so travel is treacherous, at the very least.

I'll make something nice for Friday night instead of our usual cocktails and light fare. I'm in the mood for lamb chops..... We're both just so happy to have love in our lives and it's satisfying on so many levels.

I hope everyone has a marvelous Valentine's day. Travel safely!: heart:

DH is taking me to my favourite restaurant tonight. Typical Greek fare with nice soothing music and good wine. I am sure we will have a great time whispering sweet nothings.

May I wish all DC members "Happy Valentine's Day"!
