Can you believe it’s already Valentine’s Day? February is flying by. If today caught you unprepared, and you don’t have a menu planned for tonight, don’t worry. I put together a really fun list of where to buy heart-shaped food for Valentine’s Day. That will make your table so festive — and so easy.
I’m actually picking up a few of these for our Valentine’s Day dinner because we have plans tonight, so we don’t really have time to cook and clean before we go out. Plus, it’s all heart-shaped. How could I not?

I love whenever there is a free 8×10 print. If you do too, you’re in luck.
Through Valentine’s Day, you can get a free 8×10 print from CVS. Just click that link, add one to your cart, and enter the code VALENTINE at checkout. Even better, if you pick in store pick up, this is completely free.
This is perfect for a last minute Valentine’s Day gift. Just add a frame from the dollar store and you have a quick present. If you’re actually looking for a gift idea, try the I Love You Because … dry erase frame from A Bride On A Budget. You can get a free printable for it too (which I designed!).
I actually have a bunch of free printables on A Bride On A Budget, so if you’re looking for something to print, take a look through those. They’re great if you (or a friend) are planning a wedding.
If you need another idea for this, print out a coloring page. Then, get dry erase markers in a bunch of different colors. Put it in a frame, and let your kids color away. Then, when they want to color again, just wipe it down and color again. That’s a really fun idea that I’m sure your kids will love.
Do you have any other creative ideas for this free 8×10 print?

Lately, I’ve been a big fan of creating recipes for dinner. I get an idea in my brain and make it. It’s fun. I never really know how it’s going to come out because it’s not a recipe I get from a friend or Pinterest, so I’m always a little worried. And I was when I made this pastina-stuffed avocado. But oh my word. This is absolutely my new favorite creation. I’m going to make it every day for lunch from now until my local grocery store runs out of avocados.
I actually made this and packed it for Pete to take it to the airport recently, so I packed it in a to go container. It fit perfectly and really made me think how much better this would be than taking a sandwich for lunch at work. Brown bag this. Am I right?
What You’ll Need:
- 1/3 cup pastina
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 tomato
- 1/2 small onion
- 1/4 green pepper
- 1 lime wedge
- 1 avocado
What You’ll Do:
Cook the pastina in the chicken broth, until all the liquid is absorbed in the pasta, about eight minutes.
While that’s cooking, wash and dice your tomato, onion, and pepper.
Mix the vegetables into the pastina.
Cut the avocado in half, removing the pit.
Fill the hole in the avocado with the pastina mixture.
Drizzle with a lime wedge.
I served mine along with egg noodles topped with olive oil and Italian seasoning.
I can’t even tell you how much I absolutely loved this. I inhaled it and have been craving it (and, as you can see, patting myself on the back about it) ever since. Plus, I love that it is light and fresh and healthy too. That’s how we like to eat, so this fits in nicely with our menu.
What vegetables would you add to these stuffed avocados?
I love this Domino’s offer. It makes for a really cheap (and easy) dinner. You can get free Domino’s gift cards sometime between now and February 27. Domino’s is giving away over 37,000 prizes. The fastest person gets free pizza for a year (in the form of $500 worth of gift cards); the second fastest gets a $100 Domino’s Pizza e-gift card; third gets a $50 Domino’s Pizza e-gift card; and the fourth to the 2003rd fastest person gets a $10 Domino’s Pizza promotion e-gift card; 2,004th to 17,003rd fastest person: $5 Domino’s Pizza promotion e-gift card; and 17,004th to 37,003rd fastest person: $4 Domino’s Pizza promotion e-gift card.
If you sign up here for advanced notice of the promotion, you’ll get a two minute heads up about when the giveaway goes live (that’s my gift to you). If you have friends sign up, you’ll get an additional two minute heads up. It’s not that you’ll get to try and get a gift card before everyone, but you’ll get a heads up on when the giveaway is going live. Then, everyone gets a text when the promotion is live and the speedier you are, the better your prize.
The text will be sent to you with a link to click. When you click it, it will tell you how many people you were faster than, and it will tell you your prize. You’ll be able to have the e-gift card sent to you via text or email. I always get it via email (in case I accidentally delete the text). I’m always able to use it online, and of course, I choose a night I don’t feel like cooking!
I’ve been getting a bit of notice each time and I’ve been posting in our coupon group on Facebook, so be sure to join our group.
Do you think you’ll have the fastest fingers to win free pizza for a year?
