    To beat the crowds, DH and I went to Tribeca last night to celebrate V-day using my birthday reward a few days early :). Girls going out to early dinner with their respective boyfriends so I'm just going to make curry and rice here at the house. Ghiradelli brownies with ice cream for dessert.

    My dinner tonight ended up being a girls night out dinner out with a friend who celebrates a birthday on Monday. I had a coupon and gift card, though so you know it was a good deal!

    raesmom1612 - I bet the fish was delicious! You can make Valentine's pancakes with a chocolate drizzle for breakfast. :-)

    coupon4me - It's been too long since we have had fajitas. I need to put them on the menu.

    jdouglas13 - lobster...yum. And I think lasagna is going to be later next week since I did not get to HT as planned for the meal deal yet. Sorry - you'll have to get a raincheck. lol

    I got DH a table top deep fryer (from GMA deals and steals for $25 plus shipping normally $50!) for Valentine's day and he opened it when he for here yesterday so dinner tonight is fish which was free that DH caught and froze over the summer. Served with rice rice and a veggie.

    No idea what we are doing tomorrow since he goes back....maybe a Valentine's day breakfast. We normally don't celebrate big for Valentine's since our anniversary is 30 days later.....can't believe we are going on 10 years married!!!!

    What is everyone else doing for Valentine's meals? I'm always on the lookout for romantic ideas.

    Faye, your pic of the pancake (?) hearts is to cute!

    Tonight we are having our Valentine's dinner since we got live lobster. Not exactly frugal, especially since we got 2+ pounders, but compared to a dinner out, it's not bad and the quality is wonderful!

    Faye, you got me at lasagna. Yum! What time is dinner? ;)

    Tonight it is breakfast for dinner with the .99 eggs from Aldi last week, turkey bacon, rye toast and fruit salad.

    Tomorrow night we are having either lasagna or beef stew for Valentine's Day dinner...I think. :-)
