You will have a great time.floridacatlover wrote: ↑Tue Feb 12, 2019 8:50 amNot really for Valentines Day, only a coincidence, but my friend and I have an outing planned for Thursday. A local university offers a completely free 3-day World Affairs Conference. We are just going to the Thursday afternoon sessions. We went for an afternooon last year and loved it, very intellectually stimulating.
Before the conference my friend is treating me to lunch at a nice restaurant nearby. This is her thank you to me for helping her write and edit a recent story.
So a fun day.
Oh I wish we ( well make that I) could indulge in lobster....Not with my cholesterol. Enjoy your meal.colonialgirl wrote: ↑Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:05 amMy plan (let's see if it comes to fruition) is to do dinner for hubs in the dining room with the red table cloth, china, silver, etc. Have steaks to grill and am hoping Aldi's has some lobster tails this year. If not I may pop for a couple at the seafood place. Will do some roasted asparagus and I have a package of cherries in the freezer for a cherry pie.
Keep in mind I plan and fantasize way, way, way better than I implement and follow through. We may end up going out. We don't really do gifts - but I will get him a little something from me and the baby - not sure what.
Not cooking is a great way to celebrate the day. Enjoy your chicken.Dgflorida wrote: ↑Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:32 amWe are going to have a store bought, $4.99 rotisserie chicken. I cook every night. We don't eat out. So this will be a treat for me. Hubs likes this too and there are never any leftovers. I won't add vegetables because we eat so many all the time. Probably our regular sugar free jello with whipped cream for dessert.
Home cooking makes such a difference. Perhaps Mr. B will surprise you with a phone call.littlemiss63 wrote: ↑Tue Feb 12, 2019 12:10 pmNothing special going on here on Valentine's. I got Mr. B's Valentine card in the mail yesterday, but since we want be together this year we will celebrate it when we spend the week in Gatlinburg the first week in March.
Usually, I would go out to eat with a girlfriend, but since I am watching my sodium intake I want even be doing that this year. I've not been inside a restaurant since the first week of December. All meals fixed at home, but that's ok I can tell the difference in how I'm feeling.
