Valentine’s Day Date Ideas in Tucson

Valentine's Day

Although many Americans face Valentine’s Day in the middle of dreary wintertime, if you live in Tucson you have no such problem. Instead, there are plenty of opportunities to turn up the romance and spend the day out and about with your loved one. Here are some Valentine’s Day date ideas in Tucson.

  • Plan a picnic: Pack up a romantic picnic with all your favorite snacks, including some luscious chocolate covered strawberries. A picnic dinner can easily turn into a romantic stargazing session under the night sky, allowing you to spend some quality time together away from pesky technology. For such an evening, consider venturing to Sabino Canyon, Mount Lemmon, or a favorite outdoor spot that you and your loved one share.
  • Spend the night in: If you want to avoid packed restaurants on Valentine’s Day, consider cooking a delicious dinner of your loved one’s favorite cuisine. Light some candles to make the dinner feel extra special, and take a nighttime stroll afterwards to enjoy the evening together.
  • Have a surprise up your sleeve: If you and your loved one have been talking about doing something in the Tucson area for months – like trying a new restaurant or checking out a cool music venue – Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to finally do so. Surprise your loved one with a thoughtful plan that shows you’ve been listening.

Transporting Holiday Food in Your Car

Holiday Food Transport

Transporting holiday food in your car isn’t the easiest task, and it can really add to the holiday stress. Fortunately, getting food from one place to another isn’t all that difficult thanks to a few household items. Check out these ways to get holiday foods to family without any incidents.

Casserole

Hot casserole dishes can be a pain to transport, but not if you have an extra laundry basket handy! A travel casserole dish carrier certainly goes a long way, but if don’t want to buy one, simply place the casserole pan into a laundry basket and secure it in the vehicle. The small area makes it difficult for the pan to flip.

Pie

It isn’t really a family holiday without a pie, is it? Fortunately, getting a pie to its destination isn’t all that difficult. All it takes is a little tinfoil and an extra pie pan.

Take the extra pie pan and flip it upside down to put a top on the pie. Seal the edges together with tinfoil. It might be a good idea to put the pie flat in the truck to prevent it from flipping or flying into the windshield or seat.

Leftovers

There’s usually a lot of food at holiday meals, so there are bound to be leftovers too. Packing those delicious leftovers away is as easy as storing everything in plastic containers. Put the containers into the laundry basket, and then head home on a full stomach!

If you want to make sure your casserole arrives at the holiday party in style, take a look at our new inventory at Quebedeaux Mitsubishi.
