I’m not sure how we started this tradition, or if we even meant for it to be a tradition, but every Valentine’s Day since we’ve been together Collin and I have made seafood alfredo for dinner. I’ll never forget that first Valentine’s Day. We weren’t living together yet and Collin came to my apartment and brought marinated venison steaks and I made the alfredo. Even though we weren’t leaving the house I put on a black skirt and thin yellow sweater and made sure my hair and makeup was just right.
Fast forward 5 years and tonight we didn’t have the ingredients to make the seafood alfredo so after work we made a quick stop at the grocery store. Let me preface this by saying we were both at work late and by the time we got there I was STARVING. I learned tonight why they say not to go grocery shopping when hungry. We went in for the following items to make dinner tonight:
After walking around aimlessly we left the store with the following:
Pizza Rolls (I’ve been craving these since Tessie mentioned them)
Buffalo chicken strips
How’s that for a romantic dinner? I fully intend to eat this while lounging in my sweats with my hair in a half-assed pony tail. What a difference 5 years can make.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!
