Valentine’s Day is probably going to be low-key this year, and honestly, I prefer it that way. I used to get really excited about making fancy dinner reservations weeks in advance and getting all dressed up…and then it usually felt like a let down that wasn’t worth the hype. Crowded restaurants, over-priced, set menus, lackluster service. Now, I’d much prefer to hang out with Aaron at home, cook dinner together, and wear stretchy yoga pants (story of my life). The fancy dinner can happen a different day.
The one Valentine’s Day tradition I always honor, however, is eating something extra special for dessert. These are a few of my favorites…
And pancakes. Especially for dinner.
What are your thoughts on Valentine’s Day? And more importantly, will you be making something sweet?
