Mini Appetizer Recipe Ideas – Valentine’s Day Dinner for Two

Happy Valentine’s Day.. I still can’t believe it is the middle of February, already. While many of you probably already have plans set – I am happy to say I just finished making my shopping list. We will be celebrating at home, low key – indulging in a special planned meal, as usual.
While I am still quite obsessed with all of the mini tasting dishes used for our pre- Super Bowl Party – I thought it would be fun to incorporate them into a home-cooked dinner this year.

The plan is to make a cozy little buffet for two, consisting of all of Butch’s favorite foods. Except they will all be scaled down and served in the mini dishes. I love the idea of variety, especially when you get to have a tiny taste of everything – and have to say my mouth was watering a little putting this list together. I’ll only be making one dish from each category below for our dinner – though I couldn’t resist including the extra recipes I came across during my search. I’ll share more of our dinner details soon – until then, enjoy….
