3 Course Valentine's Day Meal with Wine for Under £10

Valentine's Day is just around the corner! While I believe that you should show the person you love that you love them all year round, Valentine's Day is a good excuse to do something together. Especially as we all have busy lives with work and children.

I always find that restaurants put on a special menu and double the price just because it's Valentine's Day.

Supermarkets that offer meal deals also seem to put on a different one that's twice the price just in the name of love.

If you've followed me for a while, you'll know that I love saving money when it comes to cooking, which is why I've decided to create a three course meal including wine that cost less than £10 from Aldi.

Not only is this a tasty three course meal, but it even comes with a bottle of wine!

It's super simple to prepare too, so if one of you isn't so confident in the kitchen, perhaps as a special treat they could get cooking!

The total cost for all the ingredients on the wine is just £9.81 when shopping at Aldi.
