Confession: I don’t really like Valentine’s Day. I hate how crowded the restaurants are, how overly priced flowers get and how it makes all (okay, maybe not all) of the single people feel bad. Scott and I don’t really do much for the holiday, in fact if he got me a $5.00 hopelessly romantic card, I would probably throw it back at him and say, “you could have gotten me a latte for the price of this!”. Okay, I am kidding…sort of.
Instead, Scott and I like to play a little game. (I owe all of the credit to Julie on this one.) Basically we have 2 hours to go out and spend $25 on each other. The possibilities are endless– lottery tickets, socks, hot sauce, and car washes have been some of the previous years picks– I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year!
The good thing about the lovebird holiday? All of the recipes that are popping up on blogs:

Any plans for Valentines Day? And good recipes to share?
