So in an effort to maximize the holiday’s potential, let’s minimize the variables by sticking to a few simple rules.
Be indulgent, but not beyond your abilities. Shucking oysters and the emergency room on Valentines?
Keep it simple. Easy preparations leave less room for error.
Keep it casual. How about an entirely finger friendly menu?
Keep it light. You may be called on for active duty later.
Keep it fun. Spend more time with your lover, and less in the kitchen.
