Valentine’s Day is my favorite holiday. EVER. It’s pink, and sparkly, and girly, and I’ve always been lucky enough to have someone I loved (be it parent or friend or sister or boyfriend or now, husband) so I just glory in it.
BUT. I am staying in this Valentine’s Day. Why, you ask? Here’s why:
- A packed restaurant is super unlikely to be a restaurant where you get great food and service. Harried chefs, prep workers, waiters and bartenders cut corners, burn stuff, and drop drinks.
- I usually hate special menus. They’re filled with stuff that’s been chosen to create lots of gain for the restaurant, and the chef hasn’t prepared the dishes a thousand times, so the chance of something going wrong is HIGH.
- Our dinner at Hillbilly Tea last Valentine’s Day was so lackluster that it killed both my love of Hillbilly Tea and my desire to go out on Valentine’s Day.
BUT, should you wish to venture out on Valentine’s Day:
- Here is a list of sixteen restaurants that have Valentine’s Day menus in Louisville
- Here is a list of Vday present ideas
- Here is how you can make Valentine’s Day cards for kids at Kosair
Do something. Love someone. Don’t bah humbug me, Valentine’s Day is my JAM!

Thank you, that’s incredibly kind! I miss her every day.
Cornmeal pancakes, blackened shrimp and white cheddar country ham quiche, oh my.
well I know where I’ll be this Sunday. Recovering from my inevitable hangover at the Wrench
Anonymous asked: Where are those donuts from?!!??!?!!?
The Amazing Glaze, in Southern Indiana (it’s not all hayrides and apple-picking) my very favorite donut place in our area. They have amazing donuts and they sell out ALL the time.
