Call me a party pooper, but heading out to fight the crowds on Valentine’s Day just doesn’t ever sound fun to me. Crowds aren’t my thing. So this year, Jon and I are staying in for Valentine’s Day, and we’re going to cook dinner together. I’ve been scouring Pinterest for some fun but frugal ideas, and I thought I’d share my favorites with you!!
Jon loves steak, and I love asparagus, so this one is definitely a front runner. And I love the fact that it only costs $14 for the whole thing!
We are big wine fans, and who doesn’t love cheese? With a little meat & fruit on the side, this would be a super fun (and really easy!) dinner plan. I like it.
Contest over. This one is the obvious winner!! Bread and Veggies dipped in melted cheese? Topped off with fruit and goodies dipped in melted chocolate?! There is no contest, people. We’ll be having fondue.
(FRUGAL TIP: We have not shelled out the money for a fondue pot, because we’ve found that our Crock Pot works perfectly for keeping the cheese or chocolate warm! We just bought this set of colored fondue sticks for dipping, and we’re all set!!)
I’m excited to spend the night cooking with Jon. He’s kinda fun to hang out with. How about you – do you guys like to go out or stay home?
