V-Day cometh

Sunday, February 12, 2012

We have a tradition at our place for Valentines. LASAGNA! And not some store bought stuff. Nope. HOMEMADE LASAGNA! Our recipe is loaded with fat and calories. We only eat it twice a year, Valentines and my husband's birthday.

Of course, we serve it with salad, crusty french bread and some sinful chocolate dessert.

Best. Meal. Ever.

My grandma comes to dinner and we treat her as the guest of honor. We dine by candle light. I tuck little Valentines at each place setting, sealing them with chocolate kisses. I wear an bright pink blouse and earings that look like conversation hearts.

I love our Valentine traditions. LOVE. THEM.

I thought about trying to make them healthier this year. Veggie lasagna? Whole wheat french bread? Fat free chocolate pudding?

I settled on whole wheat french bread. That is all I could concede. It is one day out of the year people! We are going to have our love day dinner!

I cook healthy, mostly vegetarian meals every other day of February.

Love day deserves a splurge.

Do you have any love day traditions?

    I do not have any Valentine's day traditions but I was thinking of cutting everything in my son's lunch into heart shapes.
I think you should keep your traditional meal unless everyone agrees to change it.
You are right 1 day a year is ok emoticon

    I added up all the in advance calories and will having my french bread without butter and skipping dessert. I will still enjoy the meal and not go over my calories needs. Yay!

    Do your best to avoid fats from breads, etc. with your other meals - a one time pig out should not cause problems. My wife cooks lasagne and that's the routine I use.
