Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and we all can’t help but feel excited about how we are going to spend the day with the company of our loved ones. But with the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s celebration of hearts’ day will have to change a bit— no museum dates, no candlelit restaurant dinners, and definitely no road trips or spontaneous car rides.
Still, this doesn’t mean that we have to completely shut out the possibility of showing our loved ones our appreciation and love. With the distance and isolation, we can still make it work through food! As the saying goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach,” but in this case, it’s the way to everyone’s heart!
