It's coming soon! Whether you spend valentine's day having fun with the kids or you make it the one day of the year for you and your partner, spending valentine's day usually means spending quite a bit of money on some overblown and overpriced meal. Why don't we provide you with some simple solutions for valentine's day at home? Rather than getting frustrated over a reservation at a restaurant perhaps it's time to impress your partner with a few special meal ideas. And what can you do to make your home feel a little bit more special for your special day?

Treat Yourself To “Takeout”
If you and your partner don't have the opportunity to order many meals due to a limited budget you can recreate the authentic takeout feel with this chicken Milanese recipe. If you like the authentic feel of a takeout but without the excessive costs you can recreate that street food vibe in your kitchen. Get a bunch of vegetables, your favorite meats, and create a stir-fry with pak choi and noodles. The great thing is that it doesn't take long to do and it's incredibly tasty!

The Indulgent Option
If this is the one opportunity in the year for you both to sit down and eat at the same time (especially if you've got children) make it the most rich and indulgent meal you will have this year! Lobster ravioli is such a treat that after you've sampled its delicate taste, you will be thinking about it for months to come. Lobster with anything is a treat. The great thing is that making ravioli doesn't require you to slave over a stove for hours on end!

The Most Luxurious Dessert
Before you progress to the “dessert” after dessert, there are so many opportunities to stick your face in a chocolate cake that if you've been watching your weight all year now is the opportunity to let everything go! Rather than spending days getting the recipe just right why don't you save yourself the time and effort and just purchase a high-end chocolate cake from your local supermarket? Add a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream on the side and you've got a beautiful dessert that finishes off an amazing evening.

Recreating A Cozy Ambiance
If you don't have the opportunity to get out much you might see valentine's day as the perfect opportunity to book a meal together but when money is a problem you've got to recreate that cozy ambiance at home. Think about changing the layout of the kitchen for one night set up a table and chairs and disguise the usual problems that stick out like a sore thumb. Think about the music and turn the space into a place for you and your partner to forget about your troubles for one night. Focus on the senses and you will be able to make your kitchen feel like it's somewhere else completely.

Even if you don't celebrate valentine's day, you've got to make the time to enjoy each other's company. Make it one to remember.
