30 Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! Do you go all out or are you more low-key? We are kind of in between. I do a special Valentine's Day breakfast that is super fun for the girls, they have their school parties and then Daddy gets them something special (usually a box of chocolate and a card). I can't stand going out on Valentine's Day because places are P.A.C.K.E.D. so I usually fix a special meal, a little fancier than normal, that includes dessert. Over the past few weeks, you guys have been posting some awesome links to great Valentine Ideas on our Make, Bake, Create Party and given me TONS of fun ideas! Here are my top 30 links from the party and around the web!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
