Happy Non-Valentine’s Day

I say “Happy Non-Valentine’s Day” because Peter and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s day. First thing you need to know about Peter is that he does not believe in “hallmark” holidays. Actually, he really doesn’t like to celebrate any holiday at all except Christmas and the occasional birthday. It’s really sad actually as I have always celebrated every single holiday with my family when I was growing up. :unsure: Oh well. We both have had to adjust to each other’s upbringings. He eats dinners at my parent’s house for Easter, Mother’s Day, etc and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day and other little holidays. Hmph. I mean, sure, I would love for him to bring me a gift or a box of chocolates or something, but it’s really not necessary. We don’t need one day of the year to say I Love You. We say it every single day!! If we want to get intimate, we will. AND we most definitely will go out to a restaurant for supper whenever we want!! But to everyone else who does celebrate Valentine’s Day: Happy Valentine’s Day :heart:

As it is Monday, it’s usually the day I like to make my meal plan for the week. I like to start my meal planning week on a Tuesday because that is the day I weigh in at WW and so my “eating week” usually starts on Wednesday. Here it goes for this week:

Tuesday:After my weigh in, I know that I will totally be craving a Boston Brute from Boston Pizza
Wednesday: Foil-Pack Fish Florentine (but I will cut out the rice and maybe cook it on the side because I hate instant rice) and parsnip chips.
Thursday: I’m having the whole family over for Seafood Lasagna and caesar salad
Friday: Working the evening shift so I will bring a Turkey Salad and various other things to work.
Saturday: Filipino Adobo Chicken and mashed potatoes
Sunday: Peter has requested Subway this week, so either I will order a salad or sandwich, depending on how I feel.
Monday: Sweet ‘n Sassy Boneless Hot Wings and spinach salad

Well that’s the plan for this week! I hope I stick to it :upsidedown:

    Ooooh, I’ve become addicted to chicken and fish baked in foil, it’s so yummy! We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day either, although we did watch a movie and had some chocolate mousse for dessert, which is unusual for a Monday :upsidedown: And I totally agree with you, I think it’s important to appreciate your better half (and say I love you!) every day of the year, and not just on Valentine’s Day. I’d rather get some flowers or a surprise on any normal weekday when I least expect it ๐Ÿ˜€

    I don’t really celebrate V-day either. I told my partner not to buy me anything but he did anyways! Ugh. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I really do need to try and start the meal planning things. I’ve bookmarked so many recipes to try now it isn’t even funny!

    Andrew and I usually do a little something for Valentine’s Day, but we didn’t this year because we were too busy. We don’t put much stock in it either way, if we can celebrate it we do, if we can’t we don’t. It’s just one of those holidays that doesn’t really matter right now, but I’m sure as our kids get older it will because goodness knows Valentine’s Day in elementary school ranks up there with Halloween for pointless candy gathering.
