Today’s meal was a celebration of love dinner planned for my daughters and I. It was a way to model to them as young women that love is informal and formal, for lovers and singles, and that no matter where you are in life, self-love is the best love, so this Valentine Day is yours to buy a big bouquet of flowers, pull out your best China, and lovingly put your heart and hands into a memorable meal to mark the occasion. There are not many times that I and the girls are off together on a Sunday to enjoy dinner, so today was so nice to be surrounded with laughter and dining on a couple of favorite dishes and new dishes.
Valentine Day is about giving your best to those you hold dear and love. Naturally, I show my love through cooking, so below is all of my love, wrapped up in food form, to my girls. Enjoy!
