Valentine's Day....

So, Papa and I don't really celebrate Valentine's Day....We did once - the first year we were dating.  After that first (overpriced) year, we spent VD at home - usually cooking a nice meal home together.  After having the Guppies, even those nice quiet meals have been sporadic over the years. 

Today, I thought I would try to bring back having a nice meal.  While it won't be a completely quiet evening home (G1 is home sick with the stomach bug), I hope it will still be a nice gesture to my hard working husband!

After looking in my pantry and fridge, I decided upon Le Cellier's Mushroom Risotto.  (In case you don't know, Le Cellier is the fancy restaurant in the Canada portion of Epcot in Walt Disney World.)  At first I thought I was being super frugal but quickly realized there was a chance I wouldn't have quite enough of some of the ingredients to make it! A quick trip to the store remedied that.  I spent under $20 for ingredients (and will probably have leftovers for the pantry).  In the end, that's not bad for a Valentine's Day dinner - certainly a LOT less that going out tonight.

For a sweet treat finish, I pulled out six unfrosted chocolate cupcakes from my freezer.  I have the ingredients on hand for a simple homemade buttercream frosting.

Anyway, I am joining with Rachel over at Living Better One Day at a Time with the Valentine's Day questionnaire she found on Facebook.  Hope you will join in the fun!
