    I don’t even want to think about Valentines Day yet, but you’re right, it will be here before we even realize that a month as passed! If only time had a “slow” button. :P

    I’m not sure what I’ll be making yet, but I plan on spending the day with the best Valentine ever…My gorgeous 2 year old daughter!

    I’m a single lady, so if I do anything it will involve me probably babysitting my niece and a big chicken salad.

    I plan on making my husbands favorite cookies – my grandmother’s sour cream cutouts.

    First time V-Day actually means something to me… not sure yet, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out by the time February swings around! Anything sweet… :) #UltimateProcrastinator

    My hubby and I are going out for a romantic dinner! We haven’t had one in awhile!

    Valentine’s Day is my most favorite holiday. I celebrate by giving chocolate and other sweets to my girlfriends and coworkers. It is the best day ever. It’s been several years since I’ve attempted homemade truffles. I may try it again this year using Ina Garten’s recipe.

    I will be making this for my honey:
    The recipe is for Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake at Mangio Dasola’s blog. It’s one of the most elegant and easiest (although there are several steps, so plan ahead) desserts I’ve ever made. It’s to die for!

    Buttermilk frosted cookies!

    We do not go out to eat that often, but to get away to our selves I think we might go out to eat and maybe to a movie.

    Not sure yet… maybe I’ll make a lovely cake.

    nothing – in the process of trying to get out of a 20+ year relationship that turned abusive and am alone so not really in the mood for celebrating “love”

    I’m planning on hiring a babysitter so that for the first time in 4 years my husband and I can actually go out on Valentine’s Day and spend some time alone just staring into each other’s eyes over a delicious meal.

    My husband and I have “Bistro” night. We pick a theme (this year will be Vietnamese) and make appetizers we’ve never made before. The more exotic, the better. We prepare them together and then share them together while practicing our dancing to some wonderful music.

    I’m hoping to make chocolate cut-out sugar cookies for Valentine’s Day.

  32. Maureen — January 8, 2013 at 8:57 am (#

    At the moment I haven’t really thought about it.
