Valentine’s Day is around the corner, so it is that time of year again to be romantic. If you love the person you are with, it should be romantic more than once a year. Right now let’s dispel the rumour that to make your partner happy on Valentine’s Day you have to go out and spend a ton of money. The truth is some of the best ways to say ‘I love you’ are for free because valentine gift delivery in Bangalore needs to come from the heart.
Here are my tips for a Valentine’s Day full of love:
Make a card: Make a card instead of buying one. This takes time and energy on your part, and the words inside are from your mind and heart, not from someone else. If you have trouble expressing your own feelings, copy a love poem down.
Love notes: Leave a note in their car saying you love them, write it on the mirror in steam while they take a shower, send a letter in the mail, a text message or an email. Just say ‘I love you’, it will come as a complete surprise if this is out of the norm for you.
Music: There are songs out there when you hear you smile, and you think of the person you love. You are instantly taken back to the moment you danced to that song and how you felt in that moment. Dedicate these songs for the love of your life.
Movies: Watch a romantic movie together, just the two of you cuddled up on the couch.
Backrubs: Give a romantic back and foot rub with some nice lotion.
Make a romantic dinner: You do not have to go spend a lot of money at an expensive restaurant, you can do it at home. Make a reservation, set a time if you have kids make it after they are in bed. Set the table with a nice table cloth, some candles, and slow music playing in the background. Serve a dinner that both of you enjoy, and then serve strawberries dipped in chocolate for dessert.
Here is a simple recipe that you can try out:
- ½ box angel hair pasta
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- ¼ tsp pepper
- ¾ tsp salt
- ¾ cup flour
- 4 tbsp butter or margarine
- 1 tbsp oil (olive oil is best)
- 1 cup thinly sliced Portobello mushrooms
- 1 clove garlic
- 6 tbsp dry Marsala wine
- 2 tbsp of grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tbsp of chicken stock
Boil water for pasta. Cut chicken breasts into 8 pieces; pound them about ¼ to ½ inches thick. Place them in a Ziploc bag with flour, salt and pepper and shake to coat well, shake off any excess.
In a hot skillet melt 3 tbsp of butter and fry the chicken about 5 minutes each side, until cooked through. Arrange chicken in an oven-safe dish and place in the oven at about 275 degrees to keep warm. Angel hair pasta cooks very quickly, so at this point, start cooking the pasta according to the directions on the box.
Add 2 tbsp of butter to the same skillet and add the garlic, do not let the garlic brown just cook until soft. Add the mushrooms and saute them. Remove the mushrooms and arrange on top of the chicken; put the grated parmesan cheese on top of the chicken and mushrooms and place back in the oven.
In the skillet, place the remaining 1 tbsp of butter, the marsala wine and the chicken stock, turn up to high to achieve a rapid boil and cook until the sauce is reduced by about half. Serve the pasta along with bread, and you have a perfect Valentine’s Day meal.
These are great ideas to have a romantic Valentine’s Day, which comes from the heart and does not require you to spend a lot of money. There are so many great ideas all you have to do is sit down and remember why you love this person and find a way to express it.
