weeknight dinner | valentine round up

Of all of the holidays to stay in and cook for yourself, I think Valentine's Day takes the cake!  I can't think of another night with as crowded of restaurants and as ambitious of a menu as on Valentine's Day.  

So don't go out.  Go out next week.  Go out when there aren't crowds and you can leisurely enjoy your night out.  On February 14th, stay in and cook together.

There's something deliciously lovely about a taco - and when Valentine's Day falls on Taco Tuesday - well then, a LOVE-ly taco is almost mandatory!  I created a taco that's both delicious, healthy, and a celebration of everything fabulous from the Northwest.
