Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Ok, I know I’m a bit late but I have been busy doing fun things. I also have found a new way to add posts to my blog…testing it out today – Windows Live Writer. It already seems easier then posting directly to Blogger. At least the pictures are seeming easier to add. We’ll see how it goes :)
My boys and I made Valentine cookies on the Sunday before the big day. I think they turned out really pretty and very tasty! The cookies are a basic sugar cookie but we used a cream cheese frosting on top…what a great combo…they weren’t over the top sweet (well, until we added all the red sugar and sprinkles that is!). I love getting the boys involved in the kitchen….my youngest loves making lasagna and my eldest loves making coconut shrimp, he even peels them! I think the real motivation is to help make food they Love to eat!
Above…my son wearing his appropriately colored shirt for the holiday and my new apron, not quite the right colors but it happened to match my sweater that day!! The apron is by Now Designs, a Christmas present from my hubby…finally I get it dirty!
Miss Bear likes when we bake!Monday morning, Valentine’s Day, it was all about the red! I’ve been making a red table for my family for years now (I need to make or get a red tablecloth though, I keep stealing the boys red bed sheet, maybe for next year!!)…they always get a kick out of seeing what red things I find for them! I tried not to make it all chocolate because I’ll eat it all ;) My Valentine’s day gift for my husband was supposed to be a beer tasting event (also a fundraiser) but it got cancelled due to all of the protests at the Capital…still waiting to hear when it will be rescheduled :( The good news is we just went on our Valentine’s date this past week….we saw an awesome concert and had a night away in Milwaukee…stay tuned, I’ll share that story in another post!!
Happy belated Valentine’s Everyone!
