If you are looking for some ideas for having a romantic meal at home this Valentines Day, look no further than this Valentines Day Menu for 2. We have put together some recipes that you can create at home for a romantic meal – all for under $7 a person!
This valentines day menu has steak, potatoes and more.
I love making steak in the crock pot for lots of reasons, and one of those is the fact that I can buy a cheaper steak and still have it taste delicious. I usually buy round steak for this recipe which costs about $4-5 per lb. You’ll need about 2 pounds for this recipe, so our total so far for this meal is about $10. Now, don’t just my picture above. That was before I learned how to use my camera. 😉 The steak is good…. trust me. 😉
Side – Rosemary Roasted Potatoes
These potatoes are SO good! They are a favorite at our house. Besides being delicious, they are easy and inexpensive to make. Besides the red potatoes, you probably have everything else you need in your pantry to make these. The potatoes might set you back about $1 so now our Valentines Day menu total is up to about $11.
Vegetable – Pan Fried Zucchini
Zucchini is another favorite of ours. This delicious recipe takes no time to make. We can often get zucchini for under $1 per pound at Crest and Aldi (and a pound should be plenty for this recipe). Our total for this meal is now about $12.
Dessert – Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
What better dessert for our Valentines Day menu than these yummy Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies? These taste great and will barely cost you a thing! A bonus? You will have plenty left over to throw in the kids’ lunches for school. 😉 Since you only need a boxed cake mix (a couple of eggs, oil and powdered sugar), these won’t cost much. We can often find boxed cake mix on sale for about $1 – if you have a coupon you might even be able to get some for under $0.50.
If you were keeping track throughout this post, you will know that the grand total for our dinner for 2 is only… about $13! That is an incredibly LOW price for a delicious dinner for two! If you are planning on a nice relaxing night in this Valentines day, there is no need to settle for boring food. Try this Valentines Day menu for under $7 per person. We think you are going to love it!
