Hello internet! The sporadic blogging continues….
I love Valentine’s Day now that we celebrate it as a day of love instead of a day of (forced IMHO) romance. For your reading pleasure, here are some of the recaps of our past Valentine’s Days.
For this year I’m thinking these pancakes (source) with our regular pancake recipe and beet juice for color for breakfast.
The kid’s lunch will look something like last year’s heart themed bento boxes:
(my lunch will be something a little less festive and a little less time consuming)
Our annual pink & red dinner menu is pretty set. We have heart shaped focaccia bread (recipe from the Betty Crocker Red Cookbook), Penne with Tomato Cream Sauce (it’s pink-ish), red vegetables and fruits and some pink sugar cookies (from the Eat Drink and Be Vegan cookbook).
Since the 14th falls on a school night, I’m thinking the red wine will wait until the 15th. :) Along with some dark chocolate. If we are celebrating love, goodness knows I love dark chocolate.
