Ah, do you smell that?
No, not the car exhaust. The smell of love is in the air!
You did remember to get your special someone a lovely gift for Valentine’s Day, right?
Well, it’s not too late. You can always prepare them a delicious dish from somewhere in the wide world of love. Better get to cooking, Valentine’ Day is almost here!
Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a sugary sweet baked treat, especially if it’s shaped like a heart.
We’d like to say ‘merci beaucoup’ to the French for this tasty idea.
Now that the sugar has woken up your significant other’s appetite, it’s time to move on to ‘the pizza of love.’
We think Dean Martin sang it right:
‘When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore!’
What to drink on Valentine’s Day? A lukewarm can of Tsingtao doesn’t exactly scream sophistication. Why not whip up a jug of rosewater lemonade? It’s quick, easy, and classy.
Does your SO understand that it’s Valentine’s Day? Beat the love theme of Valentine’s Day right into their head with some beets. The beets will get their heartbeet beating. Whew, beets. Toss this delightful veggie right in a salad or on some roast pumpkin for great snack that kind of looks like an oozing heart. Perfect symbolism there.
Hannibal would be happy.
Want to stay in love forever? Traditionally served at Chinese New Year feasts, longevity noodles are really, well, long. It’s the perfect dish to use to recreate that great scene from ‘Lady and the Tramp’ plus it helps you live to a ripe old age.
Get ready to slurp.
Last but not least, it’s time to gain the power of love by consuming actual hearts. You don’t have to go full-out Khaleesi by eating a beating horse heart, but you can try munching on Japanese-style chicken heart teriyaki. It’s a lot easier than becoming a Dothraki queen vis-a-vis Game of Thrones.
You wouldn’t even know they were hearts if we didn’t tell you. We promise.
Alright, alright. Enough with the macabre.
Have a sweet Valentine’s Day!
