Valentine's Dinner Date
Valentine's Day I spent as a married woman went as follows: no one
takes charge because one of us is a guy, we drive around town and
find out that a)driving after 6 on
is a death wish, and b)every single
has a 4 to 6 hour wait. (At what point, by the way, should
they stop taking names and just tell customers to proceed to the
nearest gas station?) I haven't been that hungry since I
tried to eat at Disney Land.
Since that night, my husband
and I have created the Stay-at-Home
Valentine's Date Tradition, and I look forward to it every year. We
put our kid's to bed early with strict instructions (read: threats)
to stay in bed. Then we light some candles, eat a fancy meal, and
relax the night away.
I mix up the menu every
year, but the main idea is fancy main course, something interesting to
drink, and lots of dessert. This date has never failed, and I highly
recommend it to anyone who hates traffic as much as I do!
