So you're opting out of Valentine's Day. Be it because you're joyfully single or jadedly so, because you get a perverse joy from scampering right past those heart-shaped candies in the drugstore, or because you've had it up to here with pricey prix-fixes in packed restaurants, we get it. We've been there.
But must you opt out of everything -- the warm fuzzies, the indulgent dinner, the chocolate -- simply because you're snubbing the sappy cards and strewn rose petals? We think not.
Instead, we'll have a feast to celebrate Galentine's Day, pulling out all the stops with snacks and lobster and homemade truffles since galpals are worth it. Because this day only comes once a year, there might be a little brunch in your dinner -- go with it. There's also a whole soup of creamy roasted garlic -- thank goodness you don't have to kiss anyone! This year, it's about ladies celebrating ladies, so raise a toast and treat yourself.
