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.
