Can I tell you guys a secret? As I’ve gotten older I’ve enjoyed going out for Valentine’s Day less and less. It’s crowded, you’re rushed, and there’s a limited menu that inevitably doesn’t have the thing you really want.
Josh and I started going out for a fancy meal a week or two before Valentine’s Day. There’s no crowds and plenty of time to enjoy our meal and each other. Then on Valentine’s Day itself we’d go to a dive bar or out for burgers.
While we won’t be doing that this year thanks to COVID, we’re looking forward to making a new tradition. Cozying up and enjoying comfort foods at home!
With Hy-Vee Meal Packs you can order meals from your couch with all the fixins’ and get them delivered right to your door. They have something for everyone and can make as much or as little food as you need.
We went all out this year and got cheese boards, chicken wings, cookie cake, and champagne. We’ll be celebrating Valentine’s Day for a week at this rate!
I love that everything was so simple. It felt like someone else did all the work for us. Largely because Hy-Vee did!
Everything was so yummy, and it was super fun to go on a date-night from the comfort of our dining room table. Hy-Vee helped make our Quarantine Valentine’s Day celebration special and for that I am thankful.
If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year I highly recommend checking out Hy-Vee’s Aisles Online program. You can get everything from groceries to gifts to Valentine’s Day spreads delivered. You really can’t beat it!
Cheers to spending time with the one you love eating food you love.

Love your usual Valentine’s tradition and your ideas for this year! It’s fun to do something a little atypical.
I’ve never heard of this before but it sounds seriously convenient! Just reading this is making me hungry. I love ordering delivery or pick-up options for dinner any time, and I’ll probably do that on Valentine’s Day too haha!

We love to cook a yummy dinner together and that cookie cake looks bomb!
Oh wow, I’ve nevere heard of Hy-Vee but I’ll have to go and check it out! I’m with you – I’ve never been a fan of going out for Valentine’s Day dinner because it’s overrated. Give me a home-cooked meal any day!
What a beautiful display and perfect way to celebrate together!

This is a pretty interesting way to celebrate Valentine’s Day. I know there are a lot of limitations because of the pandemic. Last year on Valentine’s Day, my fiance, Cody, and I went to see Sonic the Hedgehog at the movie theatre, and then we went to a restaurant called Buffalo’s for dinner. Since we’re still experiencing restrictions due to COVID, we definitely still plan on celebrating and your post has given me some ideas as to what to eat at home and what we can do for one another, like we each pick something to watch and we can choose what to have on our little menu. I love your post and I might have to check out Hy-Vee. So with that being said, Happy Valentine’s Day
