Ideas for Valentine’s Dinner at Home

February 13, 2010Katie


Mr. Wonderful and I rarely go out to eat on Valentine’s Day.  We find it not romantic to go fight the crowds, the parking lots and eat with a bunch of other people around.   This year he made reservations at Paseo Grill, however, and this place is really cool as each table is surrounded by it’s own curtain, private and romantic.

And the food is fabulous.

Here are some ideas for you if you’re staying home with your sweetie.  Click on any picture to view the post and the printable recipe.

Make some Basil Artichoke Pesto and Crostini to spread it on.

Make my Roasted Butternut Squash Salad with Cider Vinaigrette.

And your man or lady will love you for making this.

Fettucini Alfredo with Cajun Shrimp.

Fettucini Alfredo with Cajun Shrimp.  It is simply the thing to do.

Or for a meatier dish, try making my Chicken Saltimbocca. It’s to die for.

But if you make that, you’ll need something to alongside of it so serve my Smashed Potatoes.

And for dessert? There is no deliberating needed. Make this.

Whoever your love is, they will fall down and worship you for longer than just Valentine’s Day.

They will be your love-slave forever.

Try a romantic night at home with your Valentine this year.  Set up a small table in the living room or your bedroom.  Pull out as many candles as you can find.  Put on some slow jazz music or the amazing Michael Buble.

And enjoy a night with your sweetie all alone.

It’s the right thing to do.

Happy Valentine’s Day all!
