Valentine’s Day is one of my very favorite holidays – this might relegate me to the sappy minority, I know. And I don’t care. There’s certainly nothing wrong with chocolates, flowers and hearts. Plus it’s just one of those freebie days to be lovey-dovey with family, friends, coworkers and strangers alike.
Remember, as long as it’s red or pink (and sometimes purple) and/or heart-shaped, it’s Valentine’s Day-worthy. A pink paper clip holding together a stack of favorite recipes, a rich red sauce for family pizza night, roasted purple cabbage wedges…
Bonus time – this Valentine’s Day we’re having a two-day sale that tacks on a lobster tail if you buy a dry aged steak.
