It’s projected that the average person will spend $160+ for Valentine’s Day stuff this year. And that totals over $20 billion. That’s way too many Hallmark cards, roses, stuffed animals, and chocolate. Don’t you think everyone on the planet would be happier if we all spent $150 on beer instead? You’re saving money … you have some delicious fun … and you can share with your significant other, creating an everlasting bonding moment. I’m starting the movement today. Let’s all band together and start ValenStein’s Day! Fill your favorite stein with some fabulous brew, and enjoy some time with the one(s) you love.
That’s a long way to say that my bride and I agree ahead of time that we don’t succumb to the pressures of the Hallmark holiday. We had a lovely dinner with the fam (complete with faux candles) it was a great treat.
Today’s Food Rundown
- Breakfast. I’ll give you one guess
- Lunch. I made myself a chef salad. Lettuce, carrots, celery, cheese, salami, ham. Lite Italian dressing. Pretty low-cal and it was yummy too.
- Dinner. This was the fancy family meal. We grilled some filets and added roasted broccoli and AirFryer cooked mushrooms. This meal was awesome. FIlet can be a little calorie heavy, but overall, it was a healthy day. Once again, I had a lot of room left in the ole calorie budget, so I went with another heavy hitter.
