I think we spent almost our entire Valentine's Day cooking & eating ... or doing something that involved
I stayed up past midnight the night before our big love day baking a chocolate cheesecake...
For my little loves, we woke up and made an apple-cinnamon Dutch baby for breakfast.
After breakfast we hit a couple more grocery stores to get the rest of the items that we needed for our V-Day dinner. We found some strawberries on sale, so we came home & made some of these:
Then the kiddies got busy making their valentines. Since they don't attend a school where they get to exchange cards with their friends, valentines were made for grandparents & each other.
Hubby didn't head home from work until after 8pm and he was 45 minutes from home, so the kids ate their dinner and then I waited for Hubby to get home so that we could eat together. We made steamed shrimp, crab legs, stir-fried asparagus, mashed potatoes & gravy, a salad (with red leaf lettuce, gala apples, & Craisins ... had to get more red on our table!), homemade sparkling-berry-lemonade, bread, and of course our chocolate covered strawberries & cheesecake for dessert.
Even though I ran my dishwasher THREE times on Tuesday and Hubby washed some dishes by hand Tuesday night, I still woke up Wednesday to an overflowing sink of dishes ....
