Valentine’s Day {Menu} at Home

Since we are expecting a nor’easter (which is the norm around here lately) tomorrow we’ve decided to cancel our reservations at Catch and enjoy dinner at home for Valentine’s Day. Adam will be taking over the appetizers & main course parts of the meal and I’ll be in charge of the drinks + dessert. Here is what is on our menu!


Fresh Peach Crostini with Whipped Honey Feta & Balsamic Drizzle (via Iowa Girl Eats)


Main Course: 

Caesar Salad with Heart Croutons (via Martha Stewart)


Classic Shrimp Scampi (via Brown Sugar)




Chocolate Covered Strawberries (via The Yummy Life)



Strawberry Heart Mojitos (via Young Married Chic)


Eating in also saves money + calories and we could afford to save a little of both right now in anticipation of our 9 day trip to California! 3 more weeks til we’re out of this snow can’t come soon enough… What are you doing for Valentine’s Day? If you’re staying home, what’s on your menu?




  1. So much fun-I love cooking with a significant other.
    I currently hvae plans to down a bottle of wine on the couch by myself and make red velvet brownies.
    but there’s a small chance i may have plans with the new {potential} man in my life!!!!

  2. That all looks so delicious! We don’t have much plans for Valentine’s Day either because of the cold weather. It is miserable here in WI, it has been the longest winter ever.
    I hope you enjoy your California trip, 9 days is a long time – where abouts are you staying? My brother just got offered a job in Los Angeles, so if he accepts I might become quite the jetsetter between here and there 🙂

  3. They look yummy! Good choices!

  4. Save me leftovers? I’m working on Friday, but you know I’ll be having a glass of wine and dessert.
