Valentine's - Dining in or out?

We usually stay home, just because the crowds and prices are crazy on the actual day. DH often takes me out the following weekend or something like that. What can I say, we're "frugal." ;) At home he'll make a nice steak though and we usually do something fun for dessert with the kids like chocolate fondue or an ice cream sundae bar.

If you're eating in this year, here are some recipes to inspire you...

I'd love to hear them Karen!

I need to think of what I'm going to make the kids for breakfast tomorrow. I was thinking of making pink waffles. Maybe I should pick up some whipped cream and strawberries too.

I just saw that egg thing on Pinterest over the weekend!

Loving the homemade conversation hearts. "You don't eat Conversations Hearts, you experience them." So true! I remember competing to make the longest sentence with them ~ Hey babe. What's Up? Fax Me. Sweet thing. Ha!

Have a great night out Wren!

We ended up having some delicious steaks at home. We splurge and eat good steak once or twice a year only - Valentine's Day and/or our anniversary.
