Valentine’s Day Ideas From Halenda’s

February 12, 2020


Valentine’s Day is on Friday. You could try to get a restaurant reservation for two. Still, Valentine’s Day is one of the hardest days to get a booking and Friday is one of the business restaurant days.

Skip the stress of a dinner reservation and treat your partner to a romantic dinner for two instead.

If you prefer a cozy night in over dining out for Valentine’s Day, Halenda’s has you covered with quality meat and recipes for Valentine’s Day.

Recipe ideas for any mood

These recipes are a step above your usual weeknight dinner, and most are uncomplicated to make. They’ll all make your house smell good.

Fancy Filet Mignon—

Avoid the overpriced, stuffy steakhouse and cook it at home instead. Blue Cheese Crusted Steaks with Red Wine Sauce will make your steakhouse dreams come true. Pair with mashed potatoes or oven-baked potato wedges and a glass of wine.

Roast chicken heaven—

Make our Classic Roast Chicken with Rosemary and use the leftovers for chicken salad. Save the bones to make a stock!

Easy comfort food—

This Perfect Pierogi Casserole might remind you of the food your mom used to make, with canned cream of mushroom soup. Or try this perogi casserole that has Halenda’s kobassa.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary


Osso Bucco—

Osso buco is a specialty of Lombard cuisine of cross-cut veal shanks braised with vegetables, white wine and broth. Try this pork version or go with the traditional veal.



Want to be literal with your heart offering?

Taste magazine discusses cooking with beef heart and offers a Red Curry Beef Heart recipe.


If you’d prefer a weekend brunch celebration, Eggs Benedict with Porketta might be for you.

Prefer something that we prepare for you to cook?

Some of our meat comes pre-stuffed. At a Halenda’s store, you might find pork tenderloin stuffed with spinach and Swiss cheese, ready to bake. You might also find pork loin chops with Swiss cheese and asparagus. Products are subject to availability and vary by store.

For the platonic Valentine’s Day

Singles, we haven’t forgotten about you.

If instead of celebrating with a romantic partner, you gather with friends that you love to watch rom-coms, order a party platter or assemble your own charcuterie board.

Regardless of whether you have a romantic partner or not, don’t put too much pressure on yourself for Valentine’s Day.

From our hearts to yours,

Happy Valentine’s Day!
