It just so happens that Valentine's Day 2021 falls on a Sunday, which means one thing... roast dinner delivery. Hunker down with steaming hot plates of beef, chicken or veggie alternatives, with fluffy potatoes and seasonal veg, you'll be so stuffed that you'll forget what day it is. 

Fancy setting up a boozy brunch at home? Disregard Valentine's Day and instead opt for a family gathering complete with eggs benny, full English fry ups, hangover pizzas and whenever else you fancy, you can even chuck in some bloody marys while you're at it.
