Easy 3-Course Valentine’s Day Dinner

35-Minute, Three-Course Dinner For Your Valentine

Valentine’s Day falls on Friday this week, which means I’m likely going to be ready to relax after a full week of work instead of spending 2 hours in the kitchen cooking a romantic dinner. I doubt my husband wants to either. The other option is an overpriced pre-fixe dinner out in a crowded restaurant– a recipe for disappointment. I decided to look through my favorite recipes and put together an easy dinner that I can prep ahead in just a few minutes.

Starting with a crunchy, sweet and crisp chopped salad, followed by creamy, cheesy cacio e pepe, and ending with a refreshing and delicious mango sorbet, this meal is full of indulgent flavor.

Meal Prep Valentine’s Dinner

I learned a long time ago that meal prep can be romantic. Yes, I said it. Heck, cooking is romantic. But mostly when it’s stress-free and feels more like date than a chore that leaves you exhausted. Want to impress your significant other? Let them see you in the kitchen, throwing fresh, delicious ingredients together like a pro.

Move over Victoria. Meal prep is the real secret to a great Valentine’s Day. (That was supposed to make you laugh!)

Easy 3-Course Dinner Prep Plan & Recipes

So, here is the plan and the three recipes that’ll make their hearts melt! It’s Wednesday, so I’m making my sorbet tonight!

Wednesday: Blend up your dessert Mango Sorbet and freeze. (5 minutes)
