Valentine's Day around here

I gave my family these.


Pinterest is a game changer.  You can do cute things without having to actually do cute things, you know?

Just download and print.

And buy the tic tacs.

So yes, I worked hard.

On Saturday we went to the grocery store and lost Adam.  We wandered aimlessly looking for him and after awhile, I saw him.  He was leaving the store!  "Adam!" I called to him.

He turned around and put his finger to his lips to hush me.  And he was holding two bouquets of flowers he had just tried to buy on the sly.  One for me and one for Emma.  You can't fault a man for bouquets of roses.

We had our seven course meal.  Of course we did.

Mark set the table in a somewhat minimalist style.  The salt and pepper were on extreme ends of the table with candles spread thin.  Emphasis on symmetry.


Appetizer--deviled eggs and zucchini frico.  How have I lived without zucchini frico?


Soup--tomato basil.


Salad--caprese.  I don't want to live my life any other way.


Palate cleansing sorbet course.


Entree--steak with bearnaise sauce.  P.S.  Adam is really good at steak.


Dessert--chocolate pudding and whipped cream.


Cheese--Costwald with chives, Havarti dill, pepper jack and aged cheddar.  And dried apricots for good measure.


Food is our love language.

Wow. I'm not going to let my family read this post. My Valentine's Day offering to them was so dismal in comparison. But I know what dates next year to plan a trip to Utah! :)

I got the same Valentine's from Tobin! Only his were attached to yummy fruit leathers from Costco.
