Our Valentine’s Dinner In

Wellll, another Valentine’s Day come and gone, but I’m very tempted to say that it may just have been one of my favorites!

After we poured ourselves a little champagne from our $4.99 bottle (I don’t care what they say…the cheap stuff ROCKS!)


We got to work on dinner. I took care of the main course, while Jay handled our side dish, and I definitely gave both of us two thumbs up! Thumbs upThumbs up


Jay made another batch of his glorious garlic green beans.


And I searched through my recipes page until I finally found something I wanted to make:


Ricotta, Spinach, & Sun-Dried Tomato Stuffed Chicken


This is definitely a great mid-week meal, and looks like it could be a lot more complicated to make than it really is.


The pieces were pretty large, so I immediately cut mine I half, and saved it for another time.


I couldn’t fill up solely on dinner…there was dessert to be had! Open-mouthed smile


We did it! We successfully held off on eating our goodies until last night, and I can honestly say it was totally worth the wait.

Chocolate + Caramel Apple with festive sprinkles


Dark Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treat topped with mini Peanut Butter Cups (which has now got me thinking I need to experiment a little more with these at home!)


Jay and I definitely dominated our goodies in no time flat. Absolutely incredible!


As you can see, there was a strict dress code for last night’s Valentine’s dinner in: Cozies ONLY! Winking smile

And pretty shortly after finishing our sugar-laden treats, we ended up on the couch looking a lot like this guy…


I also got a really FUN surprise from the hubby, which was DEFINITELY a surprise seeing as though we don’t usually do much more than buy each other a card for V-Day…

But I’ll have to fill ya’ll in on that later tonight because I’m rushing out the door! Open-mouthed smile

Question for the Day:

What would be your favorite caramel apple topping combo??

Oreos? Nuts? Oodles and oodles of chocolate?? Winking smile

    Quick unrelated question Courtney, I have been sick for three days and havent been able to get a workout in (I’m literally tied to my couch) I’m going stir-crazy do you have tips about not working out while sick? Its driving me nuts!

    • Courtney says

      Awww no, I’m so sorry! :(
      Usually when it comes to working out when I’m sick, I try to gauge just how much physical activity I can handle. Although, since you said you’re tied to your couch, it sounds like you should still be taking it easy!
      Until you’re starting to feel better, maybe you could try a few yoga stretches? A couple other favorites of mine, which are low impact are chair dips, ab contractions (do it while you’re sitting on the couch!) or leg lifts on the floor. It’s not much, but until you’re feeling better, will hopefully help with the stir-craziness! Feel better!!!

    That dessert looks delish!! I hope you recreate something like that 😉

    This is totally random but I thought of you the other day when at Trader Joe’s I saw that they came out with a Peanut Butter cream cheese!!! Just like the Pumpkin cream cheese you had gotten only this is with peanut butter! It’s so delicious and it has little bits of peanuts in it. If you can get to a TJ’s soon I suggest you try it! :)

    • Courtney says

      OH.MY.GOSH. I REALLY wish I had a TJ’s nearby because that sounds AMAZING!!!
      Perhaps we could work out a trade?!? 😉

      • Shayla says

        It is so amazing and I would love to work out a trade with you!!! It’s absolutely delicious and because you’re a lover of PB like me, I know how much you’d appreciate it and you must try it, so I would be more than happy to ship a couple to you!! 😉

        Email me at shaylacarin@yahoo.com or send me a message on Facebook (I’m a friend of yours) so we can work out the deets!

    Looks like a great night! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen champagne that cheap? I think it’s usually been at least 8 dollars? I prefer sparkling grape juice it’s $2.99!

  1. […] do anything special on V-Day…no cards or anything like that, although we do tend to sometimes make a nice dinner in or something low-key (tonight we’re actually going to dinner and seeing a movie, but […]
