Valentine’s Day Menu Ideas

Hubby and I don’t usually go too far out of our ways for a big to-do on Valentine’s, but what we usually do, and we do it well I have to say, is cook yummy food and eat!

If you still need some dinner ideas for your homemade Valentine’s, maybe a few of these will spark your inspiration.  And why not have some fun tonight?  Shake it up a little with something out of your routine weekly menu, but just because you’re having fun, doesn’t mean you need to break the calorie and chemical bank either.  These are wholesome, real food dishes that’ll get your taste buds begging for more!
