The Way To A Man’s Heart Is Through His Stomach
Before Hubster, I never put too much thought into the holiday! Yes, I do think it’s a bit commercial, but I also love a day where everyone is a little nicer to each other. I just love when he makes a homemade valentine for me, they’re so much more thoughtful that a store-bought card (how can someone else put your emotions, experiences and memories into words?).
It has been my tradition to make a formal coursed meal every year for Hubster. I make everything from scratch, the pasta, dressings and even the butter for the bread/rolls. There are usually a few similarities from the previous years, but the tradition of our favorites makes the day extra special.
