Valentine Feast at Home

My husband went to work on Valentine's Day.  He suggested for us to go out for dinner so I don't have to cook, however, I hate going out on holidays like this.  You know restaurants are always crowded and I just end up having a migraine so I just cook at home.  Let me show you the feast we had, home-cooked food are the best  in my book.  I even made  the card I  gave to my husband.
I made three dishes that  we all liked.  I made some pork BBQ and we ate it with steamed rice and steamed veggies.  
I love using these stainless steel BBQ skewers from Cave Tools.   I love that it measures 15.5 inches so you can really pack it with meat and veggies.  The feature that I like the most with this set is the food remover ring.  It helps to easily slides the food  off the kebobs.  It is dishwasher safe but I love washing it manually.  The advantage of having these kind of skewers is that you can  reuse it over and over again unlike  bamboo skewers.
 This works really good too when you want to  grill corn on a cob.
 This set has ten skewers so if you are hosting a party, you can get a couple of set of these and use it for grilling your favorite meat or veggies.  You can buy this at Cavetools website or via amazon. Use this coupon code, SKEWERS15 to enjoy  15% discount upon checkout.
 Aside from the menu above, I also made the kids favorite dish, the stuffed shells.
 Then we made a no-bake  banana creme pie for dessert.
 Hubby loves burger so I made sure to make some  burgers too so we have some choices to eat.  I was in the mood to cook so they got lucky to have those choices for Valentine's Day.
How about you, did you go out to eat or  are you like me who  cooked and enjoyed the rest of the day at home?  Personally, Valentine's Day is way overrated.  For me it's just another day, it is like Valentine's day everyday for my husband and I anyway so no big deal.  I do however get excited because I always get a pot of mini roses from my husband which I always plant in our garden.  It's nice seeing  them bloom in the summer.

Wow it looks like you guys ate really well. We don't celebrate Valentine's Day, so it was just a regular night for us and we had burgers for dinner.

Jeannette said...

Oh my gosh all the food looks good. What a great way to celebrate Valentine's Day without actually having to leave the house. I think I need to try some of the food that you have here. It looks amazing.

Your meal looks amazing and I'm with you, we stay home and enjoy our time together. I don't like going out to dinner on holidays either.

Now this looks like one delicious meal for Valentine's I have to admit we just got a takeout and watched a movie! I would love to have done something like this though.

That is quite the Valentines Day feast! I'm with you on not going out, as it seems everyone is out that night. Good call on this meal!

Dinner looks yummy and if my mom was here to celebrate Valentines Day she would have loved having a piece of the Pie you made along with my husband. For my I would like the Hamburger.

Looks like you fixed all kinds of different food and had a great time at home. We don't do anything special for Valentines Day just not that big of a deal for us.

I stayed in on Valentine's and had a not so romantic dinner with the kids but it was still nice. Your meal was a little fancier I loved the banana cream pie.

Yum, this looks like a tasty meal. We just ordered pizza for dinner. We didn't want to deal with crowds and neither of us felt like cooking.

What an awesome Valentine's Dinner. We usually do breakfast for dinner. This year my wife and daughter made pancakes.

Every year we prepare a meal at home for Valentine's Day. There's something so much better about home cooking.

It sounds like you had a very nice Valentine's Day celebration! We always stay in on Valentine's because we don't like crowds.

I'm with you! Going out on a holiday, especially Valentine's Day, is a nightmare! I would much rather stay home and cook! Your meal looks delicious!
