The Romantic Italian Dinner
You can’t go wrong with Italian so I had to start off this list with this menu. I’m an Italian girl after all, and if my hubby were to make me this on Valentine’s day, I’d be putty in his hands. Don’t forget the bottle of red wine.

The Movie Night
Staying in and watching a movie? Here’s a menu of finger foods that are sure to please.
Appetizer: Guacamole (with veggie sticks, chips, or whatever else)

At second look, maybe I should be calling this one “The Avocado Lovers” instead.

Traditional chicken pot pie (my mom’s recipe). Comfort food at it’s finest right there.

Side: Roasted Cauliflower
And last but not least: CHOCOLATE!!!!
