So what do you plan to do on Valentine's day? Anything exciting?
I am one of those people who think that Valentine's day is a Hallmark created event. So I don't really celebrate it. I am just cynical and jaded. But don't let me rain on your parade.
What are you up to this Saturday?
So what if you are single. Are you planning on having a fabulous meal? Cooking? Some chocolates or extra treats?
I think I am going to cook some yummy food. Maybe lobster or crab. I've always wanted to make like a 5 course dinner. So I may try that. And definitely some pink champagne. Who cares if it is nasty?
Years ago, when I was sweet and innocent, my hubby and I had a tradition of having a Valentine's day lunch. This is way back when we could hardly afford to eat outside. We had Andre's Pink Champagne (3 dollars) and a subway sandwich (6 dollars). I would pack everything in a picnic box and we would go to a park and have a little picnic.
Over the years, we stopped doing that. I started working and could not do champagne lunches. Times changed and things changed. We changed.
Over the years I decided that I no longer wanted flowers, did not eat chocolates and did not want presents for Valentine's day.
Why celebrate love one day per calendar year? Why not everyday?
This is a difficult time for my hubby. Every year he never knows what I want or expect. Wanting and expecting are two entirely different things. I may not want flowers but I may be expecting them.
See how confusing I am?
So this year, I am going to make it easy for him. I am going to cook something for us. A nice, special dinner. I don't want to go out for dinner.
Does anyone have any ideas what I can cook?
Any web sites you can recommend for recipes?
I'd love to hear from you! I need serious help!
