Are you one of those people that prefers to “stay in” for Valentine’s Day? If so, you’re gonna love this! And if not, these Instant Pot Valentine’s Day Dinner Ideas may sway you in a different direction!
Full disclosure, we’re some of those people, but not always by choice. Sometimes, it’s just the lack of babysitter that keeps us here. I know we’re not the only ones, right? I mean, really. We haven’t had a date night in almost 3 years! Send.Help.
There are those times where we get in the kitchen together and cook a fancy dinner, but then there are also those times where we’ve been working and chasing kids all day and just don’t have the energy, or the will, to spend hours in the kitchen.
We just want to send the kids to bed, throw something together pretty quickly- without sacrificing yum-and binge watch some Netflix while we chill in our jammies.
Call us old fogies I guess.
But, my Instant Pot has saved me so many times. And instead of spending all day in the kitchen on Valentine’s Day, I can throw something in that magic pot and end up with flavor that is out of this world!
These Instant Pot Valentine’s Day Dinner ideas will have you staying in this Valentine’s Day!
And honestly, my main squeeze prefers it that way. He’d rather a home cooked meal before eating out any day. But there’s also the perk of not having kitchen duty either way. I mean, I’d rather that too.
But then there’s the money saving option of staying in too, and now you’re talking my language!
