So where does a food blogger go on Valentine’s Day? Everyone asks me– and I always say, “We cook at home. It’s scary out there on Valentine’s Day!”

I had every intention of cooking, but decided that since our dinner was going to take 3 hours to prepare, I’d rather go out, so we’d eat before midnight. Where did we go?

Dixie Chili. We had a lot of our early dates there– and hey, it was practically dead. Tres romantic, no?

  1. This is fantastic! I am curious as to what you do for your anniversary (first date, what ever). My husband and I actually both forgot! The Dixie Chili sounds like something that we would do too. Holidays are so over commercialized that the expectations are too high, so we like to do just the opposite of everyone else and do special things on “regular” days just because we can.
    Thanks for the wonderful post to show that not everyone succumbs to the hype in order to know that you care for each other.

    Hey, Keith and I had our first date (a movie and snack after) at Skyline. What’s not romantic about Cincinnati chili, right? Just watch the onions for kissin’ afterwards. 🙂
