It’s kind of a bummer when special days fall on a weekday, unless you work from home or you are the stay-in type like us. We never liked eating out on Valentine’s Day because the restaurants are just over crowded. So, the idea of cooking a simple meal, paired with a good bottle of wine and followed by television has been our ideal way to celebrate the day. I don’t even want to blame our little boy for this situation. We have been this way even when we were the more energetic couple. If you are like us, this collection of 20 Meal Ideas for Valentines Day will surely help you plan your menu for the special day.
