Another stay-at-home for holidays couple here!! (And my birthday is just 3 days after V-day, so we always go somewhere nice for that anyway.) As stated before, the restaurants are crowded, many times the regular menu isn't available & you have to order from the "special" menu, & I can frankly live without the limp red rose or carnation usually handed out to every female diner at the door - lol!!

Our "traditional" Valentine's Day dinner for the past 10 years has been a couple of nice big Maine lobsters served up with lots of melted butter & lemon, shoestring potatoes, & a green salad. I also pick up or make something nice for dessert. Easy to make without a lot of fuss so I don't end up spending the whole evening in the kitchen.

Plus it allows us to be able to just kick back in comfy old clothes & watch some good old movies together.

Well..I am leaning towards prime ribe-eye on the grill...but am keeping my options open...I think for sure (after the icecream freezer discussion) I'll get out the White Mountain and crank up a batch!

What kind of cake is that lulu?

Don't know what we'll be doing. dh mentioned it a few days ago and I said "I dunno, what do you want?" His response, "I dunno." Then he said something about chocolate.

Hoping for more ideas...

Surely you can find someone to be your "Valentine" and go out to dinner!

Oh, that reminds me, omar!

A former boyfriend once made me a delicious drink, called "Por Mi Amante". It was made of sliced strawberries steeped in tequila and agitated once a day, for 3 weeks, then strained and kept in the fridge to mellow for another 3 weeks.

The resulting drink was a beautiful ruby-red, mellow and delicious concoction that would be perfect for Valentine's Day. Trouble is, you'd have to start the recipe around New Year's Eve.

Well, maybe next year.

P.S. How did you choose your user name? Are you a Red Sox fan, by chance?

I think I'm going to order a Diordano's pizza from Chicago and have it overnighted to us even though the Fedex will cost more than the actual pizza. My husband LUVS Diordanos. I am going to order a box of See's Candy too. I'll make a salad with goat cheese, pine nuts, cranberries and balsamic.
We'll have some bubbly before the pizza too, to make it festive.
