If I’m being honest it’s probably because that’s the night that Trevor and I order Indian food. <– always. ♡
This Friday in particular is special, because we’re talking about love. . . for food.
Valentine’s Day is meant to be spent with your loved ones eating romantic food like bruschetta, pasta, and chocolate, and drinking romantic drinks like champagne and spicy pinkish red margaritas.
So let’s all celebrate our love for food with these Valentine’s Day Recipes!
