It's Valentine's Day. However, I did have a usual mid-week dinner planned - Lentil Soup - not very romantic or celebratory - is that even a word? In the back of my mind a little voice keeps saying, "Lobster, lobster." But who has lobster on a Thursday Night?
When the kids were little, we used to buy them cards and little boxes of chocolates on Valentine's Day. We would try to make it festive - there are so few opportunities to fancy up winter after Christmas, that any excuse to make a fuss was seized!!
Maybe because we are down to just one child in the evening for dinner, that we've stop being festive - but really lentil soup - though tasty - it's a little pedestrian.
Well I have about 8 hours to re-think dinner, buy a card, some flowers for my husband and some chocolates for the two kids still at home.
I actually checked the arsenal and I do have enough lobster weapons for 3, if we share the nut (claw) cracker.
Hmmmmmm can we be wicked and have lobster on a Thursday?
Have a wonderful day!!
