So Valentine's day is right around the corner, and my boyfriend is nowhere to be seen.

To be fair, he has his reading week for school, and I encouraged him to see his family. Maybe I am just used to being apart from him on Valentine's day, I made sure this year was the same. I mean, in the 7 years we have been dating, I have spent Valentine's day with him maybe twice. And we basically just sit around eating chocolate and watching horror movies. (What, that's not what you do?)

Spicy Slow Cooker Chili

This crockpot chili is a great dinner recipe on a cold day. Spicy and filled with ground beef, this dish screams comfort food.

My slow cooker saved my life.

Okay, maybe I'm being a little too dramatic here, but it definitely saved me having to eat out every night. Or having my boyfriend cook all the meals every day. Which isn't so far from the reality most weeks.

Is anyone really excited about Valentine's Day?

I might sound like the equivalent to a Grinch for Valentine's Day, but I have never really been into the holiday past elementary school. Something about how commercial it is, and how some people feel bad if they don't have a date or boyfriend or whatever. To me, it just feels like an exclusive club that only a certain group of people get invited to, and that just makes me plain uncomfortable.

But I will never object to baking for the occasion!

Can we please make cookies a new food group? Because the way it's going, I might be eating more cookies than I am fruits and vegetables.

I actually made these cookies to celebrate my birthday with my students, but somehow me and my boyfriend ate some the night before, resulting in there not being enough to feed all 3 of my classes.

Maybe we can excuse my behavior as being a birthday treat to myself.

Are you a snacker when watching movies?

I am not a huge snacker when I watch movies, but my boyfriend is always wanting something to eat when watching anything. Usually he wants potato chips, but we never have any in the house! So he resorts to eating whatever he can find in the house. Some of the weird snacks include bowls of frozen peas, craisins, and hunks of cheese.

Obviously we need a snack intervention.
