Scored some T-bone steaks with a $2 off coupon, a bag of red potatoes, stuffed mushrooms (only thing not on a markdown), zucchini for the grill. Got a lemon cake on sale for desert. Valentine’s day dinner for much less than a restaurant. We eat well at home so that we aren’t feeling tortured. It is always cheaper than going out for a “special” dinner.
We also made a meal at home tonight! My husband made meatloaf, vegetables and chocolate cheesecake for me as I have rheumatoid arthritis that affects my hands very badly. I hope your day was wonderful.
I bought steaks on sale that we will grill with some shrimp as well. Asparagus and salad on the side. Homemade vanilla pudding for dessert. Plus a nice bottle of wine to wash it down. Looking forward to it. Less than $50 for 4 people. Everytime we’ve been out to eat lately, it’s been $80-100.
We always do Valentine’s Day dinner at home. Tonight rob eye roast (bought on sale $5.99 per pound) cheese souffle and wilted lettuce salad. Magic bars with bittersweet chocolate and dried cherries for dessert. Much less expensive than going out and more fun too.
