Galentine’s Day is all about ladies celebrating ladies. Treat yo’ self to some quality time with your best friends and a day full of food inspired by the queen of Pawnee, Leslie Knope.
Leslie Knope would argue that a tasty waffle from JJ’s Diner is the perfect way to start your Galentine’s Day. If you don’t have the legendary JJ’s in your town whip up a quick batch of Belgian waffles with this recipe. Don’t forget to add the extra whipped cream.
Lunch: Paunch Burger and a Child Soda
Even though Paunch Burger causes some problems for the Parks and Rec crew Leslie would never pass up a #2 Special: a double bacon grenade deluxe with hash browns, chili cheese fries, and a poached egg. Use this recipe for a DIY paunch burger that’s just as great as the Pawnee favorite. Wash it all down with a 512 oz., child-sized soda.
Dinner: Mac and Cheese Pizza
End your day with a bang by making another one of Leslie Knope’s favorites. Mac and cheese pizza is the perfect combination of the best comfort foods around. If you don’t have a Ben Wyatt to make it for you, you can do it yourself with this great recipe.
Snacks: 5 lbs of Gummy Bears
Candy is the most important food group, and Galentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without it. Snack on gummy bears throughout the day to make sure you have the energy to get through all of your Galentine’s Day plans.
Nothing says friendship more than a day filled with the best food around. Stick with these Pawnee classics while you celebrate Leslie’s favorite holiday this year.
