We always say food is love, and with Valentine’s coming up, we’re getting hungry. Have you seen that episode of Seinfeld when George tries to eat a sandwich while having sex? Let’s just say, we understand (and no, we don’t eat sandwiches while having sex).

Well, this year, the economy kind of stinks and everyone wants to save money. We have two inexpensive ideas for you:

1. When Lon and I first started dating, he won me over by bringing me little treats. I would meet up with him and he’d have a simple brown paper bag in his hand, nothing fancy, but there was always a great treat inside. It’s the little things that can really put a smile on anyone’s face. The saying goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach” but it goes both ways. Don’t think us girls cannot be bribed too. Anyways here are a few things you can grab around the city that we think are yummy and inexpensive. If you really want to impress, you can buy a different one every day leading up to V-day.

2. We don’t like going out to restaurants on Valentine’s Day. Cooking at home saves money and can be so much more intimate (see V-day dinner from last year). Here’s a list of ideas and/or recipes we’ve posted that are V-day color appropriate (red/pink, etc.):

We hope this helps you and results in sweet smiles from your food valentine! Happy Valentine’s!
