Do you have a reservation made for Valentine’s Day dinner? If not, it’s probably too late! According to an Open Table survey, over 50% of people plan to dine out on the 14th. But, I’ve got a better idea, stay home and cook for your Valentine!
My birthday happens to be on February 14th as well. However, my husband and I have not once been out to a restaurant on this date. Waiting to be seated past a reservation time, elbowing a stranger next to me and having to shout to be heard is not my idea of romantic, or fun. Furthermore, many restaurants will be offering a prix fixe menu at a premium price. In fact, the average couple will spend around $150!
This year, why not stay home and prepare a meal customized to your taste? A nice steak with a couple of sides may be just the ticket. Or really step it up a notch and go for a combo. Whatever your sweetie likes: Surf and turf, steak and chicken. Keep them in mind when preparing your menu and you can't go wrong.
Feed someone you love something great because you love them! And don't forget the sweets!
