Welcome to Day 3 of 14 Days of Valentines! Today, it’s all about the food we eat and the drinks we drink. Desserts will be in their own post and I’ll also feature Kid Friendly desserts next week. We don’t really prepare anything special for Valentine’s Day (as we tend to treat it like any other day of the year), but you could also use these recipes for anytime of the year. Or you could do a red themed dinner night for a party- really, just use your imagination and don’t limit yourself! You could also do a few of these for a 4th of July celebration.
Valentine’s Day Dishes and Drinks
Start off your day with this delicious Strawberry Raisin French Toast from Mom vs. Boys

If you’re spending Valentine’s Day at home, be sure to try a few of these recipes for a tasty Valentine’s day or try them any day of the year. Other suggestions for a red themed food? Salsa, strawberries, cranberries, red peppers, radishes, or beets. Next time I’m over there, I’ll have to ask my mom for her buttered baked beets recipe. I’m not usually a huge fan of beets but those are melt in your mouth delicious. Maybe it’s the butter..
Do you have special dinner plans for Valentine’s Day? If so, what do you typically do?
