Looking For A Romantic Valentine's Dinner But Strapped For Cash? Time For a 7-Eleven Run.
Valentine's Day is coming up quick, and if you don't have your shit together, trouble could be on its way too. But don't panic. Say it with me: “Oh, thank heaven for 7-Eleven.”
Yes, 7-Eleven. If you can trust them at 2:04 a.m. on a Sunday to provide nourishment to your highly intoxicated body, you can trust them to pull through on one of the toughest holidays known to man.
Really, you can cater a whole meal at your neighborhood convenience store. Sure, I use the word “cater” lightly — it's more along the lines of simply providing for your needs — but, let me tell you, friend: If you're trying to impress a certain someone that makes your sweet little heart pitter and patter, then your needs are great.
And we're here to help. That's right: You're about to learn how to make an entire Valentine's Day dinner — including gift and wine — from ingredients purchased from your local 7-Eleven store. All for under 35 bucks.
First, purchase these items:
– mixed fruit
– Caesar salad mix
– spaghetti noodles
– parmesan cheese
– garlic baguettes
– chocolate rose
Then, do this with those things:
– Cut cheese into triangles and arrange with fruit and nuts.
– Prepare salad and split into two bowls.
– Cook spaghetti noodles.
– Heat Ragu in microwave.
– Merge two and arrange beautifully on a plate.
– Top with Parmesan cheese.
– Add in your baguettes.
– Set out cupcakes.
– Pour wine.
– Boast with pride at all you've just accomplished.

If this does not impress your love interest — by effort alone — please check his or her pulse. A Lady and the Tramp-style spaghetti dinner on Valentine's Day is pretty much what every heart wants, whether they admit it or not. Sure, there are a million reasons why you shouldn't have waited until the last minute to plan this “special” evening. None of those reasons matter.
Do the above steps, throw away the 7-Eleven bags, light some candles, put on deodorant and let the evening take you where it will. If you're lucky, you'll find your sweetheart's lips at the other end of a spaghetti noodle.
