Valentine Virtual Dinner
First of all this virtual dinner is open to all, don't be shy, it's a fun thing and the more that participate the more fun it is. So jump in anytime! Even if you only do a special Valentine dessert, please join in and share. The whole idea is to share recipes and ideas and talk about what you are cooking.
The theme is centered on Valentines Day, which can be anything you want. In the past we have had themes centered on various cuisines from around the world. I think everyone had fun with the South America virtual dinner. I know there were many good recipes floating around. Some invited friends or family for dinner, others just made dinner for themselves. Even if you are alone, there's nothing wrong with making a special dinner just for yourself....you are special and deserve it.
When: The actual virtual dinner will be Saturday, Feb 16 2013. If you are doing your dinner on Valentines Day, which falls on Thrusday, or on Friday, Feb 15, you can still post about it on Saturday. I know many go out for dinner on Valentines Day, so maybe you could just think of Saturday nights dinner as a second special dinner.
Before the actual day of the dinner, please post about what you are going to make and share recipes. This part can start right away. Please post only on this thread so that we can keep it all together. Other's might find your ideas are something they want to try too. Recipes do not have to be T+T as we all understand you might be trying something new. I don't really have any ideas yet for this year, we do something different every year. I know there are others that have made it a tradition to do the same dinner every year. As I type this, I'm thinking crab cakes might be good this year. I love making desserts so that may be harder to decide. Please post your menu if you can, again, not required but it may give someone else an idea.
On the day of the dinner, if you can share progress posts that will add to the whole thing. Please take pictures of your dinner, if you can.
AnnT sent me a list of who said they wanted to participate, when she asked me to do this part. She has some extra stuff going on right now so I said I would help.
Rules???? There aren't any....I hope we can just have fun with this!!!!
