Valentine’s Weekend Recipes- Friday Night

Today, I am taking a small break from the Love Language series because it is only about two weeks before Valentine’s Day.  Time to plan for some fun stuff for that!

I know that Valentine’s Day falls on a Friday, so I actually chose to make a weekend specialty list of recipes.  If you aren’t going away, don’t have a ton of money to spend on gifts or dates, but you do want to make the weekend special, here is a good list of recipes to get you started!


Dinner- This is Valentine’s Day!  How about making your husband’s favorite recipe?  Something special that you aren’t able to often make.  Maybe even something you have never been able to make?  So, in the hopes that you can get creative here, I will refrain from giving a recipe.  But, here is an idea… maybe choose to cook it in an outfit that he will love, something new, tiny and special.  🙂

Dessert- Again, since it is V-Day, maybe stick to tradition and make some good old fashioned chocolate covered strawberries.  Here is a recipe, for those who have never made them


You will need-

2c milk chocolate chips
2tbsp shortening
1lb fresh strawberries, leaves on.


  1. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and shortening, stirring occasionally until smooth. Holding them by the toothpicks, dip the strawberries into the chocolate mixture.
  2. Insert toothpicks into the tops of the strawberries.
  3. Turn the strawberries upside down and insert the toothpick into styrofoam and place in the refrigerator for the chocolate to cool.

If you want to add a twist to the norm, try hulling the berries and filling them all with cheesecake filling before dipping in chocolate.

Enjoy!!!  I will post ‘Saturday’ later on.  Please ‘follow’ along 🙂
