In elementary school, I planned out all my Valentine's weeks in advance (who was going to get which Disney princess card was very important) and fantasized about who would be my secret admirer. In my adolescent and early twenties, the roses, chocolates, gifts, cards, and surprises were affirmation that my current beau truly cared about me. In my late twenties, I now know the greatest love is the one we can give ourselves and a good man shows you how much he appreciates you not through material things but through patience, companionship, loyalty, and acceptance(though I could always go for something sparkly 😉 ). But I'm still a romantic, and Valentine's Day being the "most romantic day of the year,"
What if I told you you could indulge in stuffing every night. Would you believe me? I bet you'd think there was a catch. And, well, there is, sorta. But not so much of a catch as a swap. A swap from heavy to light, carbo-loaded to nutritious, delicious to still very yummy. You should know that I will never swear off indulgent foods, like stuffing. But I also know that eating a plateful of bread and gravy each night won't help me feel or look my best. So, I save the real deal for special occasions.

Why is it that life's most enjoyable moments can be followed by such tedious tasks? Going to bed early followed by waking up to a shrieking alarm. Showering followed by blow drying your hair. Putting on PJs followed by brushing your teeth. Having friends over for a party followed by clean up. And, alas, cooking followed by... dishes, ugh! I love cooking!
