The Token Valentine’s Day Post

Valentine’s Day is not exactly my favorite of holidays… In the wee Rader household, we believe that love is celebrated every day, but if it’s an occasion to bake, wear pink, and eat in a fancy restaurant — I won’t say no!

I don’t have any of my own recipes for you darlings, but I have searched the interwebs high and low for some Valentine’s  Day entertainment…

Looking for your Mr. Right this Valentine’s Day? Jenna, over at Eat, Live, Run has a cozy recipe for chicken ‘n biscuits to snag a husband! I’d marry you if you made these for me… and if I wasn’t taken by the cutest beard this side of the Mississippi.

Remember him? It’s okay to swoon… I am.

Are you doing any baking this Valentine’s Day? Am I?  You bet your sweet melons I am.  Wish I had these babies to use in the kitchen.. so festive!

What are your dinner plans? Cooking at home and staying in with a bottle of wine? Or are you going to a fun, festive restaurant? We’re trying out the Iberian Pig in Atlanta.  In my opinion, nothing in sexier than tapas, Spanish music, and wine.  All components of a fabulous Valentine’s Day… that, and well, grown-up stuff, of course.

If you’re sitting at work on Monday with no one to send you flowers, just open up a bag of Reese’s hearts and spend your break playing Let’s Get Bakin’ Valentine’s over at Shockwave.  I am addicted to time management games.  You’d think I’d be better at managing my time, right?

At the end of the day, though, remember that Valentine’s Day is not just about romance and candy, it’s about love — for each other and humanity.  These are sixteen awesome ways to say “I love you, world!” over at Philanthropy Writing.

Find something to love this Valentine’s Day — be it strawberry hot cocoa, your significant other, or yourself, because that’s what makes the ride on this little blue ball all worth it.
