Three Valentine's Day Menus - Romantic Meals You Can Make at Home


The hubs and I have a tradition of making dinner at home for Valentine's Day.  There are lots of benefits to doing it this way.  First, you beat the waits and crowds at local restaurants.  Second, you save a lot of money by preparing your meal at home (which frees up money for things like our next vacation).  Third, cooking and food are very romantic, and being in the comfort of your own home adds to this.

But Valentine's Day isn't just another weeknight home-cooked dinner for us.  We always step it up a notch by making more of a gourmet meal, with more courses than we'd make on an average night.  Even then, we still save a ton of money compared to the more expensive prix fixe meals many restaurants serve on V-Day. 

Today I am sharing three of our favorite dinner menus that we have made at home for Valentine's Day in recent years.  I hope these inspire your own at-home romantic meal this year!
