For some, Valentine’s Day is an extravaganza of greeting cards, flowers and chocolates, which makes equal numbers of people totally nauseous. Seriously, is it really necessary to see a pudgy baby shooting arrows at everyone plastered in every store window? We’re sorry, but who decided that arming a baby was a good idea in the first place? Also, could someone please put some pants on that kid?!
If you fall into the camp who wants to snip the spaghetti noodle strung oh-so-adorably between Lady and The Tramp’s mouths, then you probably don’t really do the whole Valentine’s Day thing. There’s a favorite holiday out there for everyone and this one is just not your bag. Which is totally fine! There’s no law that says you need to suddenly wake up on February 14th, ply yourself with chocolate and prepare a bunch of delicious recipes for two. Instead, this Hallmark holiday, why not try out a bunch of dishes just for you.
