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"!

Nothing exciting here. Just leftovers when anyone's hungry since I have class tonight and my sweetie is teaching tonight after work. Hope everyone up north stays warm and safe today. We're just getting rain here in my part of VA.

Oh yum, if I lived 2 miles from Giardanno's they'd know me by name. My hubby used to live in Chicago and its his favorite pizza, we indudge whenever we get up there (and then take long naps!).

I'm working tonight so I have no idea what the cook will be feeding me. I'm praying it will be something tasty. I'm leaving perohe and sausages for my family tonight. Thats easy for the girls to prepare and its one of Madeleine's favorite meals. I'll do something special on Saturday night and call it Belated Valentine's dinner.

Sorry you're feeling poorly, Lulu. Just think of what fun you'll have making up for lost time later.

Very cold here today. Single digits but there's a little sunshine.

Started our day with a special Valentine's Day breakfast of poached eggs on homemade rolls, browned sausage patties (sausage made by a friend) and chocolate-raspberry coffee.

Dinner will be French onion soup, shrimp and artichoke quiche and black devil's food cake. I used some of the leftover breakfast coffee in the cake. It should be yummy.

Probably end the night with a glass of sherry.

"Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!"
