Valentine Date Night Supper Recipe

Valentine Date Night Supper Recipe.valentine date night supper recipe

So Valentines Day is upon us again, and for those of us who’ve been ‘dating’ the same guy for a number of years, it’s not all about the overpriced red roses and the candlelit dinner à deux. In fact, in our house, it’s quite the opposite. If him indoors actually remembers a card then that’s a bit of a miracle in itself. Over the years we’ve relaxed into a rather nice routine of not bothering with the clamour to get that last table elbow to elbow with the couple next to you and instead opted for a really nice meal at home. So just in time for the big cupid day, here’s a couple of valentine date night supper recipe ideas for you to try.
