Are you still trying to find dinner reservation for Valentine’s Day? Instead of paying marked up prices and trying to enjoy a romantic dinner for two in a crowded restaurant, consider a lovely homemade meal with your special someone.
Plan the right menu
Don’t let cooking scare you. You don’t have to be a Michelin rated chef to create a romantic meal for two. YouTube and Pinterest are your two new best friends, they can help you find easy and delicious recipes with step-by-step instructions. Don’t forget the ambiance! Set the mood by creating a romantic dinner playlist or by enjoying your dinner by candlelight.
If cooking dinner for two is too overwhelming of an idea, split up the work instead! Enjoy a romantic evening preparing a meal together. This great bonding experience can help take some of the culinary pressure off you. So grab your special someone, set the mood and start cooking.
Have a backup plan
Not everyone is gifted in the kitchen. If this is your first time using a stove, it’s a good idea to have a fire extinguisher and take-out menu handy! You definitely don’t want your date to go hungry on Valentine’s Day. Be prepared to order a last-minute pizza or Chinese food delivery, just in case.
If the holidays put a dent in your wallet, you may be strapped for cash this Valentine’s Day. To make next Valentine’s Day more special, open an SRI Federal Credit Union account and start putting aside money each payday. Visit a branch on Valentine’s Day and pick up some candy for your sweetie. Not a member and want to join? Click here to submit a membership application.
