Valentine's Day 2015 Dinner & Dessert Ideas

My Little Valentine
Happy Valentine's Day! Are you doing anything fun? I have to admit, I have nothing planned so far. Greg, Wendy, and I were going to use our free breakfast coupons at Chick-Fil-A this morning (I know, we are fancy), but then Greg ended up taking a class to renew his CPR certification that he needs in order to be a sailing instructor. So Wendy, my little Valentine, and I are just taking it easy and hanging out. I will probably go out to the store later to grab some groceries for dinner, but I am not sure yet what I am going to make. I put together some dinner and dessert ideas for myself and for you, in case you are also wondering what to make for your special Valentine's Dinner. I never go out to dinner on Valentine's Day because I hate to fight the crowd (and because Greg never plans anything..haha). It is okay though, it is supposed to be in the single digits tonight and I'd much rather have a warm dinner at home with my family. Hope these dinner and dessert ideas help to inspire you today. Enjoy!

After putting these recipes together, I decided that I am probably going to make the Eggplant Parmesan Burgers. If I do dessert, I think I will do the warm chocolate pudding cakes. I haven't made them since last year and they were SO good!
