    Such a great compliation of menu ideas! I have always tried to cook something extra-special for Valentine’s Day. But, this week I think I am too tired. V-Day is the night before I’m throwing my sister’s baby shower, handling the food (and my fourth cake of THE WEEK) — I think this year I want restaurant reservations 😉 I’ve always loved those 3 simple tartines you posted! Such great inspiration here.
