With Valentine's Day falling on Thursday, it isn't as easy to get out to celebrate.  Life can certainly get in the way of a weekday holiday.  If the way to the heart is indeed through the stomach, then the Valentine's Day dinner needs to be artfully planned.  It is the perfect day to pamper your partner and show your love through food

Plan a romantic at-home dinner date for Valentine's Day with these tips for setting the mood. Create a romantic Valentine's Day atmosphere with candlelight. Create a playlist of your favorite romantic songs and put it on repeat.  Set the perfect mood with a bouquet of red roses or carnations for a centerpiece. Make the dinner table look special by setting out your best china on an elegant red table runner, and if the dining room is near a fireplace, get a cozy fire going to add to the ambience.

Fortunately, there are many culinary cupids across our Island who can do the cooking for you.  Think of it as a romantic heat and eat dinner.  Heart shaped lobster ravioli with champagne sauce or heart shaped bacon-wrapped fillet mignon are festive entrees.
