Anti-Valentine Valentine’s Day Menu

Table for one? Yes please.  If it’s just you, be selfish on V-Day: Pour yourself a (bottomless) glass of wine and indulge on what would normally be considered suitor-repelling dishes. To rebel against a truly annoying holiday, we bring you an Anti-Valentine Valentine’s Day Menu. Think of it as a special way to stab Cupid with your own arrow; a soul-soothing, savory satisfying arrow. 

Starter: Say “oui” to French food at home. Love yourself enough to whip up a looks-fancy-but-is-easy-to-make appetizer: Artichokes With Garlic Aioli

Care more about good food than good breath.

For the main event: Slow-Roasted Garlic Chicken. Shred the leftovers for chicken quesadillas, salad, sandwiches and enchiladas for the rest of the week. 

It takes 4 (!) bulbs of garlic to flavor this unforgettable roasted chicken.

On the side: This one’s an obvious choice — nothing says “Cupid’s stupid” like creamy, velvety pungent Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Fall in love with Tyler Florence's garlic mashers.

Don’t forget to eat your vegetables and add some color to your plate. Garlic Sauteed Spinach fits the theme and is done in minutes. 

Get your garlicky greens.

What’s for dessert? Garlic Ice Cream! Garlic Souffle! Garlic Creme Brulee! Gross. Let’s not get carried away. As it is you’ll be breathing dragon flames through St. Patrick’s Day. Treat yourself to something indulgent and classic, like Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Pie. And have seconds. No one’s judging. 

It's all for you.

A garlic-y night at home trumps an over-crowded restaurant with a limited menu any night of the week, but especially on Feb. 14. Don’t forget to get yourself a rose.
