So, do you have any plans for Valentine’s Day? When I worked as a waitress at an Italian restaurant chain, I remember how ridiculously crowded the place was on Valentine’s Day. The restaurant was packed, there were people overflowing out the door of the lobby while they patiently waited for a table to share a “romantic” dinner with their significant others.
Honestly, does this sound “romantic” at all? I don’t think so. The entire point of Valentine’s Day is to have special moments just between the two of you, not between you and 50 other hungry couples waiting for a table and yelling conversation over music and ambient noise.
This year I propose you host your very special romantic dinner date at home. You set the mood, you set the music, you set the menu, and you benefit from a truly exquisite one-on-one evening with your lover. With just a little bit of preparing ahead and special recipe selection, you can time your dinner perfectly so that you spend minimal time away from your companion, and I’m here to show you how!
