Meal Plan Monday: Valentine's Day

Well everyone, it's that time of the year again.  Some of you love it, some of you cringe at the thought of it, but either way it's a great excuse to whip up some delicious food.  What is it you ask?  Valentine's Day of course!

As you can probably tell this week's meal plan is going to deviate away from the norm.  But that's only because I won't be home ONE night this week.  Yep, you heard me.  Between class, work, school events, and a My Politic show I have ZERO time to make dinner.  So instead, I've prepared a couple of Valentine's Day meal ideas for you.

Since I won't be home on Tuesday to make any of these mouth watering meals, I would love to know if you do and of course how they turn out!

Before we get started let's all take a second to remember that I have no expert (none whatsoever!) knowledge about wine pairing.  I know a little bit of the basics but nothing fancy.  So if you see a wine pairing that is completely false...don't judge me.  I would however like to acquire this knowledge.  So if you've got it, send it my way!
