My poor husband, while we were dating I really put a lot of pressure on him for Valentine's day. I would not so subtly remind him that I really liked getting flowers at work, and that we really needed to make a reservation soon if we wanted to eat anywhere decent, and that I really love when he wears khakis.
This year, I'm feeling much more low key. I love any excuse for making a special dinner at home, especially with Valentine's being on a Friday this year. I'm thinking of breaking out our new fondue pot, perhaps grilling a steak, and whipping up something sweet (a fudgy Texas Sheet Cake with vanilla ice cream, or Profiteroles for something more elegant) for dessert.
Here are some more of my favorite dinners for two for your own Valentine's Day inspiration!
