I bet you are all sick and tired of hearing about Valentine’s Day.
“JUST DIE ALREADY”
I heard you moan that!
Fear not. Husband is ultra NON romantic. Doesn’t think anything of the day.
I do though . . . . .
I made my husband a cute card and envelope that was sealed with lipstick lips. He appreciated it and smiled at the cheeky message inside.
We had his brother and girlfriend over for dinner.
I made short bread love heart shaped cookies and put them in the bag. (Which there is no photographic proof of, you believe me right?)
My husband queried why there was vomit bags on the table. I side eyed him til kingdom come. What a tosser!
I made baba ganoush with lamb cutlets and spiced sweet potato chips. It was paleo except for the feta cheese. Well there you go. I have no idea what paleo is. I found a pic of this dish on Gourmet Traveller but the recipe wouldn’t load so I went hunting for similar recipes and that is where I found out it was paleo.
Seeing as there were no roses for me. . sob. . again. . I just stole these from the neighbours yard and put together a quick centrepiece. That is a soy candle that I made from my wedding.
My mum rang me in the morning, asked what I was doing for the day, then quizzed me to see if I was staying home for the florist delivery. Then I laughed and laughed and she laughed and we laughed some more. . . then we sighed!
We married the same men just 28 years apart! U.N.R.O.M.A.N.T.I.C
My hopefully future sister in law brought over love heart shaped brownies. And our men just laughed at us because we both made love heart shaped stuff. WELL DER!!!! Then I asked her if the florist lost her flowers too? And she said yes. I mean, what are the chances?? Then we giggled for a bit. Then sighed, then death stared our partners!!
I made this for lunch right before doing a grocery shop as there was nearly NOTHING in my fridge. Left over piece of BBQ chicken and 1 very sad, stale looking piece of bread. I fried the bread up with some basil leaves (from garden) and tossed in the torn chicken and then put it together with some olives, feta cheese, tomatoes (from garden) and fresh basil leaves. S&P, EVOO and reduced balsamic!
What a knock out! I can be so clever some times.
I cannot stop practicing calligraphy. There is literally half a ream of paper in my recycling bin of my practice sheets.
I think I am finding my stride.
practice – practice – practice
On the up side. . . My Birthday isn’t too far away!!! Chance for hubby to really bring out the big guns LOL.
At least Audrey had a Valentine! Her Aunty! The card played music when opened. I got a super cute vid of her dancing/swaying to the music. I’ve watched it over 200 times. . .
