Do you all have any special (and possibly frugal) plans for Valentine's Day? For those still thinking about what to do this evening, maybe suggestions from others may help.
I started the day with heart shaped French toast (pictured above) and gift bags with little goodies for the girls (also pictured above).
My husband and I bought ourselves a new bed last month which we both agreed counts as an awesome Valentine's gift! So, we decided to do a very goofy Valentine's challenge and only spend $3 or less on the other person's gift. I bought him a big bag of his favorite Life Savers mints and made him a card. I can't wait to see what he came up with!
Tonight involves a homemade red themed dinner including:
Appetizer: Sliced RED peppers with red pepper hummus dip (red peppers on sale at Aldi this week through 2/14 for $1.89/3-pack)
Baked cheese ravioli with RED sauce – a favorite dish of my girls (Celentano frozen ravioli on sale BOGO at Harris Teeter through 2/14)
Sliced RED tomatoes with mozzarella and Italian dressing (tomatoes on sale at Aldi for .99/lb through 2/14)
Cheesecake with lots of RED strawberries and blueberries on top (strawberries on sale at Aldi for $1.39/lb through 2/14 and $1.50/lb at Kroger through 2/18).
I’m going to decorate the kitchen while they are at school today so it has an overwhelming red and white theme with red streamers, a few red and white balloons, red tablecloth with white plates, etc.
What are you doing to say I Love You this Valentine's Day?
