Valentine's Day

The 'Day of Love' has come and gone and I was left with a dozen pink roses, chocolate covered strawberries, and a box of See's candies (I gave Cupid the hint and gave him my gift certificate I'd received-not knowing I'd be getting strawberries).

The box of chocolates has been stashed in a safe place and ready for the moment a hormonal breakdown is on the brink and chocolate is necessary. Which could happen anytime. :)

The last few years, I've tried to make Valentine's Day special for the entire family, with a nice meal, special dessert, etc.

This year I did bacon wrapped beef filets, red roasted garlic mashed potatoes, and red raspberry jello salad. And for dessert I made giant chocolate cupcakes. They were prettier than they tasted. LOL. Tried a new recipe, that obviously isn't a keeper. And like my Dad always says, 'practice makes perfect', so I'll just have to try out another recipe!

Hope everyone else had a nice Valentine's Day!

I tried to do the nice dinner but our plans changed this weekend. It looks like a great day at your house.

Can you take a picture of the See's candy? I had never heard of them til a few years ago when another online friend (also from CA) posted about them. I've never seen them in TX.


Hello. Is there anybody out there?? I've neglected my blogs for so long, I'm sure I'm just talking to myself. Which is fine. T...
