Valentines Day is for girls, or at least that is what my son thinks.

We were walking through the grocery store the other day, which these days is a rare thing because I’m all about curbside pickup now, and he saw all the valentines day stuff. AKA … flood of red and pink! He asked me what all that stuff was and I told him that Valentines Day was coming soon. And that’s when he responded. “Mommy, Valentines Day is for girls.”

I’m hoping he didn’t get that from his daddy. haha.. But either way I thought it was hilarious. Honestly, if you think about it, it kinda is for girls. Not much “boy stuff” about it. Nice Dinner. Flowers. Gifts to show “I love you.” This holiday is built around the female mind, and you know what, I’m ok with it.

If anything it’s an excuse to get dressed up, have an intentional date night with your loved one and focus on just you two.

Usually Mike and I will celebrate before the actual day instead of venturing out in the Valentines Day restaurant mayhem. But if we do celebrate on the actual day, it’s usually at home after we put Cason down. Although this year it will be after we put the “kids down” which is crazy to say. We have TWO. 🙂 Then we’ll cook a nice meal, open a bottle of wine and enjoy a quiet dinner at home. Those are the days that I can get Mike to cook with me, which I love and secretly I think he enjoys (or at least he does a really good job of pretending to enjoy it for my sake.)

One of my most memorable Valentines Day thus far was a couple years ago. I think Cason was maybe a year old. All three of us had gone to Sprouts Grocery Store in the morning to pick out the “goods” for that evening. We hand selected a huge 2″ thick bone-in Ribeye, a nice bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, asparagus, and then the ingredients to make my Creamy Leek Risotto and Nutella Lava Cake with Champagne Muddled Raspberries.

After we put Cason down for the night, we opened the bottle of wine and started to cook the entire meal together. We stayed in the kitchen most of the night, laughed, talked and just had fun being together. And then, of course, we dove into one amazing meal!

That year was probably one of my favorites. My love language is quality time and that night filled up my love tank for sure!

This year, since we’ll have a 3 weeks old, we’ll probably end up doing the same thing. I thought this week at JHE we could make it all about Valentines Day. So each recipe this week is all about having a special dinner “in” with the one you love. Get ready for some goodies!

For our Valentines Day dinner we’ll likely still have steak, because that’s one of my husbands favorite! Meat IS after all the way to a man’s heart. 🙂 We’ll use my 15 minute pan seared filet mignon recipe for the meat part and serve that with my new Creamy Lobster Risotto recipe which I’ll be posting on Wednesday! For dessert, Homemade Chocolate Bowls filled with Mixed Berries and topped with Coconut Whipped Cream. (that one is going live on Friday!)

But enough about the rest of the week, let’s talk about today’s recipe —> these Raspberry Sorbet Rosé Floats.

Nothing says Valentines more than a bright red/pink cocktail! The best part is you don’t have to be a mixologist to make this fancy looking drink.

It’s just three ingredients. Vanilla Vodka. Raspberry Sorbet. Rosé Wine. For the wine part, you could use a Rosé Brut (which is a little more dry and champagne tasting) or a Rosé Moscato for more of a smooth sweet cocktail. I topped mine with fresh raspberries and mint to make it look fancy but you could just serve it as is.

This Rosé Float is the perfect way to start off that special evening. I hope you give it a try.

Cheers my friends…. and stay tuned for the rest of your Valentines Day dinner menu this week!
