The Big Day

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and if you are one of the ones out there that either
1) loves to celebrate it because you are addicted to hearts and candy
2) required to celebrate it because your significant other will tear your eyes out if you don't
3) loves a reason to craft cool cards and gifts
4) guininely love your partner and want to share with them a romantic holiday

then...Let's Get Started!

I was thinking about some nifty things that you could do for Valentine's Day that might be a little sweeter than waiting 3 hours in line only to eat dinner standing up because there aren't any seats left. Note: Food good. I will wait long time for good meal. Anyway, here are a few ideas that you could blurb about to your partners, friends or whoever you might be with after the glorious weekend of Superbowl 44!

1) French Broad Chocolate Lounge: take your sweetie, or just yourself!, and munch on some decadent chocolate desserts. This location is much more inviting than the Chocolate Fetish. Try the Canela Picante, bitersweet chocolate ganache sprinkled with cayenne pepper, for a smoldering finish to your romantic evening. http://frenchbroadchocolates.com/

2) Fondue Massage for Two: Take the chocolate idea and bring it on home. This is one of those classic things to do on Valentine's Day. But it seems as though we keep trying to outdo ourselves each year and sometimes you just have to go back to your roots. Grab a fondue pot or just use a double boiler on the stove. Grab some dipping buddies for the chocolate like sliced banannas, angel food cake, blueberries, strawberries and marshmallows. Nosh on some fondue then break out the massage oil. Or get creative and use that melted chocolate like it should be.

3) Read to Me: Have him or her read a good book to you. It is so relaxing. You can take the sexy route and make it a steamy read or be inventive and woo him with the dictionary.

4) Fix Me Something Good, Baby: Choose a gourmet recipe that you have never made. Shop together for all the fun ingredients, choosing cheeses, breads while stealing kisses. Get started on the meal and keep it fun. Use food in ways that...well...you may have never used it before. Hey! Keep it clean kids. http://www.epicurious.com/recipesmenus/gourmet/recipes

Of course you don't need me to tell you that there are a zillion places to gorge yourself silly in Asheville and nearby. Plenty of places to get your romance on. Plenty of spots to escape to for the weekend. Whether you take the classic route or become your own party planner, enjoy!
