    Linda, your meal sounds fabulous!

    I believe we are celebrating on Wednesday due to some scheduling issues and not enough time for me to cook on Thursday after my usual medical day... so I am trying to plan it for next Wednesday instead.

    I will be making a shrimp quiche. It will most likely be shrimp and artichoke heart quiche paired with a special salad that I still need to decide on. I will also be making a creamy soup or chowder. I will either do clam chowder in my crock pot or cream of asparagus. I am really leaning towards cream of asparagus though. I love using almond milk in this one, it's delicious and my Mom loves it. Dessert = pending.

    We will be eating at home. The restaurants are jammed on V-day. I haven't had time to think about what yet, though. Maybe lasagna, DH usually goes back for seconds with that. Jill

    We haven't decided for sure as yet.  Valentine's Day is also our wedding anniversary, but daughter has yet to tell me if I'm going to have one boy, two boys, or no boys at all that day, so it's making it a bit hard to finalize a plan.  I told her that if she would like to make plans, then rather than picking up GS1 that day and keeping him overnight, I would be happy to pick up both boys in the afternoon and keep them overnight; or, if she wanted to do something Friday night instead, I would pick them both up that afternoon and keep them overnight.  Hubby and I are pretty low key about celebrating our anniversary in any case :)   So Plan #1 is to take GS1 and meet Hubby at the Y, then go out for an inexpensive Italian dinner.  Plan #2 is to pick up a rotisserie chicken and some of the store's fancy pre-made twice baked potaotes on the way to pick up GS1 & 2, and fix something to go along with it at home as I'm not quite up to both boys at a restaurant that doesn't have plastic seats LOL!  Plan #3 is to meet Hubby at the Y and go wherever strikes our fancy at the moment as long as it doesn't have a packed parking lot :)

    I am already in the process of preparing chicken marsala--3 separate dinners--to have here and to give to each of my daughters.  I am also preparing Red Velvet Sandwich cookies for dessert.

    Martha, when the kids were home we always had a spaghetti and meatballs. My husband will be disappointed today I took out steaks.

    Would have loved to have been taken out for dinner, but all that happens now is verbal good wishes. Used to always get a specially made card, but no more. AM
