Adult Fun for Valentine’s Day
Romance in the air? Rose petals in the bath? Chocolate fever? If you've answered yes to these, you probably already know that Valentine's Day is upon us.
Whether married or single, if you need a little help in the romance department, let's check out what some of our Facebook fans of Kickin' Country have planned for Valentine's night:
- Barb Lind When the kids were little,Valentine's dinner was for everyone. We did heart shaped meatloaf with ketchup mixture topping,used the wine glasses for some red juice mixed with ginger ale. And of course,some type of heart shaped dessert!
- Shannon Hillock My husband and I prefer to stay at home and cook for each other. We come up with something special and help each other make it. Sounds simple, but it's actually pretty sweet. Then we cuddle up and watch a good movie on the couch after the kids are in bed.
It sounds simple, but its sweet. I much prefer that than going out to a busy crowded loud restaurant. It sounds simple, but its sweet. I much prefer that than going out to a busy crowded loud restaurant.
Great and fun ideas. I love the drink recipes submitted by Ashley and Justin above called "Forbidden Love" and "Mountain Breeze" by Jessica. I like chocolate milk, too. However, if you need a few more mixed drinks that would probably work with the Valentine theme:
- Blood Orange Sangria – Tough to go wrong with Pinot Grigio, brandy, and a bunch of fruit.
- Pomegranate and Ginger Mulled Wine – It’s spicy warm red wine, which takes the edge off the cold weather and encourages snuggling.
- Cherry Whiskey Smash – For sophisticated lovers.
- Champagne Punch – Instead of just pouring a bottle of bubbly, mix things up with some pineapple juice and brandy.
- Adult Hot Chocolate – A night to remember could start with hot chocolate laced with peppermint schnapps.
- Chocolate Covered Strawberries:
Melt 2 tablespoons shortening in a small pot. Add 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips, and warm over low heat until melted. Insert toothpicks into the strawberries and dip into the chocolate mixture. Lay on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet and allow to harden. Melt white chocolate and drizzle over the strawberries for a more elegant look, if desired.
Have a great night and Happy Valentines Day...and don't forget the whipped cream. Just in case you bake a pie, of course.
