Valentines: Date Night In.

Valentines: Date Night In.

Valentines day is on Sunday this year. In Toronto, this is also the NBA all star weekend. Chances are most restaurants will be really full and also very expensive! We decided to keep it very simple and have an intimate time at home. I always loved the idea of having a casual evening with my Valentine with lots of sweet treats, cheese and of course wine! I made a dinner of Pork chops with a mango salsa but we started with some Seared scallops in Herb butter. Totally delicious and easy dinner and doesn’t leave you feeling too full for the rest of the evening,  We had lots of desserts and played monopoly and chess to end the evening. It was such a lovely time just being casual  on the floor of our living room and I hope this is something we can continue for years to come. It is such a fun way to let lose after a long work week and it can be done anytime! Hope you get some lovely ideas! And happy Valentines day!
