Simple Family Style Valentines Day Dinner


     Valentines Day is just not just for romantic couples, but full loving homes. Eating together as a family is a way for them to engage and connect with one another.  Having theses dinners with the entire family was a great treat in our house.  When we came home to California from Europe, big family dinners were a priority.  Start the fun by creating the Valentines mood of love by inviting everyone, that includes grandma and grandpa. Get the kids involved with the by cutting out of heart shape cheese and potatoes.   Grandparents can thread the kababs.  Have the kids set the table.  Get every family member into the kitchen to help.  That was the fun part of growing up, specially when done with the grandparents.
