I have a bit of a love hate relationship with Valentine’s Day.
On the one hand, I LOVE ‘just for the fun of it holidays’ (see: Cinco de Mayo). I love specialty candy and decorations that make a random Thursday in February extra special.
Buuuut, I also realize getting a whole box of candy on a random day in a cold winter month means I’m going to eat all of it before the end of the week.
Wait. You don’t eat all your candy by the ‘end of week deadline’?!
And because no matter how many times I say,
“Dad, please don’t get me candy this year, I’m trying to cut back on sugar…”
He will still get it for me. (Because he realizes I’m just saying that because Vday is better than Christmas morning when you’re getting See’s Candy!)
Luckily, restaurants like Applebees are creating lower cal menus so you can have your candy and eat dinner too.
Look good? Well you’re in luck – a rep from Applebees kindly offered one RER Reader a $50 gift certificate to enjoy dinner.
