Anyway... whether I've been single or not on V-day however, it's always been a fantastic reason to eat a really really good dinner. Whether it be with a partner, a group of good friends, or alone - the only strict rule I've had was to eat & eat well. So, all the restaurants are going to be packed, why not make a great meal at home?
Ralph and I have held up a great tradition of eating steaks & drinking red wine on Valentine's day, or some variation of it. (Here's last years post). Many moons ago, one of our first dates was trying to learn to cook a steak together. Neither of us knew how to do it, so we thought learning something together would be a fun & cheesy date, right? Well it was really easy, and really delicious, and this year, I want skirt steak!
It's even easier, and I swear even more delicious. Luckily it's not the most expensive cut, either. Recently we found (and tested) the most perfect skirt steak recipe ever, from the blog Tasty Kitchen. It's easy, and it's amazing. As for sides this year? I'm leaning towards shrimp, asparagus, and more red wine.
Any plans for you this year? Any interesting traditions that aren't the norm? Enjoy it either way, even if you aren't into Valentine's Day per se, hey - at least it's a Friday!
