Heart-shaped meatloaf - how cute! I just may do that but still have all the same stuff as sides. I've got a "not your norm" meatloaf - definite possibility!

We'll eat in too.

I made the cake in my avatar last year....it was good! I really don't know what I'll do this year. Not a cake.....we ate cake and fell asleep early in a carb stupor! Oh dear, nothing springs to mind, thanks for getting me thinking now Uncle Bob.

We've made heart-shaped homemade pizza, too. And, if you have the time, cut the pepperoni slices into heart shapes. Use the cut-off parts in meatloaf for extra flavor.

We never go out on Valentine's Day either, one for the insane amount of people and the other is that our anniv is only a week later.

We never go out either our anniv is 2.22 eight days later. normally
my mil asks to have the kids one night the weekend of our anniv and
we go out. hopefully she will again this year.

I am thankful for this post it will get me thinking. I do have a cookie pan
shaped like a heart, I also have pancake molds in the shape of a heart.

Being a DC diehard, I would log in to DC and see what others are doing on Valentine Day before I decide what to do!

We don't do anything really "special" for Valentine's Day dinner. I just make a nice, normal dinner, maybe homemade meat ravioli or something.

However, I am teaching a cooking class next week with a romantic Valentine's Day dinner theme. The menu is crispy risotto cakes stuffed with fontina as appetizer and the entree is seafood cioppino with sea scallops, swordfish, clams, mussels, crab and lobster tails with grilled garlic toasts and dark chocolate cappuccino cake for dessert. The class is full.

Interesting. What kind of calendar has days like that?

As for Valentine's Day, I don't think Buck and I have ever gone out in the 30 years we've been together. Not sure what I'll plan for this year. I won't post because he'll be bound to see it. I'll have to report after the fact.
