Last year, J and I stepped out in style (or so we thought) to the Chaconia Inn for what we hoped would be a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. Boy were we wrong. Unfortunately we ended up leaving as quickly as we could (the planning was horrible, seating was cramped, tables too small, lighting bright, music system so loud we couldn’t hear ourselves). It was a real shame too as the food, what I can remember, was well done.
This year, with Valentine’s falling on Carnival Sunday, our plans are still up in the air. To avoid a repeat of last year’s debacle though I think something homemade will be in the cards. Here’s one menu idea that I’m playing around with
We will also be incorporating elements of a beautiful tradition that a reader, Kim, shared with me last year.
