A blog about food
Valentine's Day. Take it or Leave it. But love the food.
(page 1 of 6)
Valentine’s Day is upon us so we all know that this week will be filled with candies, chocolate, romance, nausea for some of us, and everything pink. I would like to be the first to wish everyone either a “Happy Valentine’s Day” or a “Happy commercialized and shallow manipulation of a day set to celebrate love”.
I have had both kinds of V-days: In love, stars, and romantic dinners out—to cynical groups of men-hating women celebrating the fact that love is dead. I think one needs both experiences to come around and just enjoy the day. No matter whom you spend it with or what it means to you—celebrate the one thing or person that you love the most. And for me that means food (believe me, my bulldog Monty is getting a peanut butter and dog food heart-shaped cookie!).
This Saturday get your reservations early and check out the menus around the Valley as this is going to be one of the busiest weekends this year. You could even go boogie at the Rosie with DJ Lenny at 10. But if going out isn’t your thing or you want a more personal touch then bring it home and get out all the recipes. I have set up a V-day party (with a music list because I am that good) to either wow your cutie (and mine is so cute!) or to keep the cynics thinking the glass is half empty.
